just trying to find out what helps the pain and what doesnt.
I was a mess before cymbalta. I started at 20mg (what doc said was not even a does that would help, but it did). Helped mood, nerve pain in back. Upper back and shoulder pain. I am now up to 60mg (took almost a year) and cannot live a day without it. It does not help lower back pain or my leg pain. Some people have bad side affects, I had a couple, but stuck with in, and thank the doc for pushing it on me ( I fought him for a few months) for it every day.I recommed starting at a low dose to help ease in.
I've seen a lot of posts on Cymbalta over my years here. It helps some but not others, just like most treatments available to us. Nothing seems to help everyone. good luck.
