I 23 and have been suffering from pain for a very long time, and all other symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.recently a doctor decided it was fibromyalgia. I have started on Cymbalta 4 weeks ago, 60mg and have found no pain releif, but have found that im getting some energy back. Is it known to be benificial to be on cymbalta and lyrica at the same time?
any recomendations i would greatly appriciate!!!!!!
p.s. are there any other fibromyalgia patients out there who have problems with your hands, stiffness, weakness, and feeling "swollen" my hands hurt a lot, and doctors are telling me that its not connected. I doctors dont seem to know much or anything about fibromyalgia. I need help, I just switched health insurances and have a PPO plan where i can be more proactive in my own health care now, thank god!
I started taking 60 mg cymbalta around 6 weeks ago for depression and fibromyalgia. I felt I was getting into deeper drepression and still hurting.I went to the Dr and told him and he up the meds. The Dr doubles my dose to 120 mg cymbalta. It has help the pain some but I don't feel right. I am staying sleepy and feel very depress. Can anyone help me with this. I really don't like my life right now :(
Hello, I hope your feeling better now. I have FM, depression, chronic fatigue, breathing issues ect.... So I can relate to your problem. first thing you need to do is get you ppo guide and get in to see a rheumtoligus. He will be able to helo w/ the FM pain and inflamation (inflammation). When I findly found a dr that actually belived that FM is a real thing, I started getting some where. Once you get your pain whith in a reasanable lever It will help alot with your depression, I cannot tell you how many days I've staded in bed. I only got up to go to the bathroom, and I slept about 18-20 hour a day. I felt like there was nothing to get up for. I still have bouts of server depression, when i'm haveing a flare up, I also take lyrica w/ the cymbalta. they seem to work well together. Goof luck with everything. rember that you are in charge of your health care. don't let the incurance company run over you. keep changing dr. untill you get one you like and knows what FM is. LOL
I've been going through this same thing. But I have a hard time just believing nothing makes ur body hurt. I don't understand what the doctors actually call fibromyalgia. OK my feet hurt bad my toes u curled up my bones in my ankle r separate my knees hurt hips lower back. Neck shoulders headaches jaw. Arm leg feet and legs go numb. I really think it is fixable . I think one bone is connected to the other and if one is just out of place even just a little it will cause this to happen to us. U need to get up out of bed. That's y ur depressed and tired. But once u get up it will get better. U can get over this but u have to be strong and want ur life back. If u want to talk u cab text me 8127186210 I feel I can help
