Those Of You Taking Cymbalta...

Those Of You Taking Cymbalta...

Do you ever take NSAIDs like Advil or Aleve with them? Cymbalta is not supposed to be mixed with these types of medications but they are the only thing that helps for my head aches. I'm wondering if they woukd help my other aches and pains too. My husband takes an Aleve every day for knee pain and it works amazing for him. How inconvenient to be on Cymbalta if it means eliminating a good class of pain reliever!

I'm having an increased amount of pain in my ribs, upper back and chest. I'm using a heating pad, muscle relaxers and advil. Is there anything I can try that I haven't thought of yet? Thanks so much for your help!

New Symptom: Headaches

New Symptom: Headaches

Hi fibro warriors,
I have been having a terrible time lately with extreme muscle spasms in my neck and upper back, much more than usual.
Also I am having bad headaches with pain in my eyes. Very unusual for me.
Do any of you have this?? I was recently told I have IBS. Oh joy, a new symptom.
Wondering if this is new too in fibro or something else. Will see my Dr regardless.
Thanks for any input.
Blessings to all of you,
Kristi ❤️

Trouble Swallowing

Trouble Swallowing

Recently, it’s been hurting when I swallow so went to ent doc and she said she saw nothing. My rheumatologist gave me super Advil for my joints but hopefully it helps. She also told me to try Pepcid. Does anyone have issues with swallowing? Some days it hurts more than others. She said if Pepcid doesn’t help after a week, go c a gastroenterologist.
Take care, God Bless!

Lyrica

Lyrica

Does lyrica affect kidney function-I have low sodium in my blood-hyponatremia. I also hold water esp. in my abdomen since I have been on lyrica. Also does it increase muscle pain and muscle tone? Thanks, FrancesMary
