lympdema nerve damage and cymbalta

My name is  Geri and I have had lymphedema for the past 30 years. During the past 10 years I have had the nerve pain similar to that of diabetes but in my fingers and left hand. For several years I have taken Cymbalta generic brand which works very well. Recently( with the past several weeks) my doctor changed my prescription to gabapentin. Last year I was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease which could have developed from the drug and dexilant. This is another reason why my prescription was changed to gabapentin because it is believed that the Cymbalta can also damage even further my kidneys.
I would like to know if anyone else has been taking Cymbalta and has developed kidney damage. And also if another drug other than Lyrica works well without doing any type of kidney damage.
Thank you all for your input.
