Re: Fibro or sever anxiety or both???! Help

I think neck injuries can bring on fibro in people who are genetically susceptible. (Whiplash from a car accident and other neck injuries contributed to my fibro.) As I understand the disease, it's...

Hairline tender spot?

I have an area right below my hairline (about an inch wide) that feels like it's bruised. It doesn't hurt as much as a tender spot, but is sensitive. I haven't bumped my head.

Re: safe to up my cymbalta dose?

Upon rereading my early response I realize I left out the part about seeing your dr. But keep in mind that they're more likely to leave things as they are unless you ask for a change.

Re: safe to up my cymbalta dose?

I take 120 mg and it made a huge difference. Once I upped the dose from 60mg, I felt more like myself than I had for a long time. (I upped it after a few bouts of crying just like you describe.) At...

Re: Do Lidoderm patches help with muscle knots?

I agree about the patches! I love that I can apply them only to the hurting muscles instead of taking more medicine that might upset my stomach.

I tried it on the knot and although the knot is...

Re: Does Cymbalta cause fatigue or help get rid of it?

I just started switching from Pristiq to cymbalta so I'm curious about this as well. I don't think there's a straight forward answer. It's different for everyone. Being patient is the hardest part!

Re: Cocktail party explanation of FM?
