I went to the doc a couple weeks ago because my meds are not cutting. I can't get a full night sleep, the pain meds DO NOTHING, and I honestly do not notice a difference with the Cymbalta. She tells me to start excersising and that it is going to hurt at first. Then she tells me to go see a therapist since I seem so upset. Wouldn't YOU be upset if you were always in pain. So I started excersising a little more regularly. I walk for a half hour to 45 minutes every day. This morning I am in so much pain I can barely move. My family is no help because they think it is all in my head. Do you think I should keep seeing the same doc, start looking around, or try to push through the pain and continue to do my walks? This is all so new to me. I am at a loss. I just want to start feelign better and it seems like it is getting worse instead of better.
