I get those rashes too. No one can tell me why. It is so severe I can't stand wearing clothes. I have tried layering Lanocaine and Gold Bond creams with some success - enough that I can finally fall asleep.

Have you tried hyoscyamine ? Just started pills given by GI doc. For cramping. It is anti cholinergic/anti spasmodic. Also, last night was the first time I realized what restless leg syndrome was. So weird to have to keep legs moving around to get relief.

Yes since I went off Cymbalta my IBS came back I have psoriasis. psoritic arthritis and more pain but less Brain Fog and can think better my personality is better not irritable. I am still looking for more natural ways to treat this because I don't like being doped up and not myself! I know my anxiety and thinking were terrible on the prescribed drugs.
