"Pain"

"Pain"

I was diagnosed with Fibro in Sept and I guess I'm still trying to make sure that's really what this is!!

When my doc talks about "pain" I'm not sure if it's the same pain I'm feeling. I think of pain as in a broken bone, child birth, etc. My pain is waking up with achiness all over, stiff/throbbing hands, feet, knees... Feels like the flu. Then during the day my neck gets very stiff and it is painful to touch my chin to my chest.

Is this what others experience as well with Fibro or does it sound like… read more

Cymbalta

Cymbalta

I'd say it's the fibromyalgia as I suffer with extreme hot sweats waking up freezing cold as I am that wet head to foot, my hair will be drenched wet through and this has been going on for few years before being diagnosed with anything and before taking any medication ,
I have only been taking duloxotine For several weeks and I was the same before these x

Lyrica & Cymbalta Long Term Damage

Lyrica & Cymbalta Long Term Damage

I’m taking Lyrica & Cymbalta to treat my fibromyalgia. I’ve heard that these drugs are very difficult to get off because of the intense withdrawal symptoms and that they can cause brain damage, Alzheimer’s, etc

My dr did not explain this to me before prescribing and now I’m a little concerned that i may be limiting my pain whilst damaging my brain.

Please advise if these risks are real and please share your experiences.

I Was Diagnosed Two Weeks Ago, Trying To Learn More About This Disease. Are My Symptoms Common?

Hi! This is my second time posting, I am new to being diagnosed and this website! This post is long and I would be so appreciative if you took the time to read it (or skip to the bottom to read my questions.)

I was diagnosed two weeks ago and I am having a lot of “do I really have fibromyalgia?” thoughts because my symptoms come and go. I know that is the nature of fibromyalgia, but since I was recently diagnosed and I… read more
