tired of being sick....and cymbalta
so everytime i mention to my drs im still having symptoms all they do is up my pain meds. they arent giving me anything else to control my disease process. i have been on plaquenil 6 months & i still have rashes,ulcers & cns symptoms(dizziness,headaches and neuropathic symptoms(burning,tingling & vibration sensations which are patchy like vasculitis) with neg tests and autonomic symptoms(intermittent elevated heart rates to 100-180s, shortness of breath,mottled redness on hands,flushing identical to my photosensitive rash etc. just to name some) I also very recently(this past week) have had trouble seeing at night when I drive and when I got out of the car it seemed like I was leaning to the right and couldn't keep my balance too well but it eventually went away. I have also had this intermittent shooting sharp pain go from my head to my shoulder blades almost down my spine. It makes me cringe when I feel it it is very intense. my dr said lets try and see if the cymbalta helps b4 trying anything else..that wont control my disease! i flare every month still..? .....as for cymbalta...has any1 taken it and how r the side effects? does it work for headaches/depression/brain fog?
