Cymbalta/duloxetine for pain/anxiety

Hello. After an extreme time of stress I started to have tingling/pressure in my face since January. I was diagnosed with a brain virus & then after asking for a second opinion I was diagnosed with TMD (face spasm in jaw/face through clenching) I had to wait 2 weeks to see two other consultants. In that time I had a reoccurance of coccyx pain (not had for 8 years) and pelvic pain (not bad for 12 years) so in the space of 3 weeks my bottom & bits are burning. I am above anxious over this. Could it all be through anxiety/stress. I'm scared to try the cymbalta but I'm scared not too. I was sort of dealing with the face but this has tipped me over the edge

Bump. Sorry I'm feeling so desperate & anxious. Doctor has prescribed 3000 of vitamin d as I'm deficient. Don't know how to cope with all three things

I don't know how to cope with all three things. I just want to walk out the door and never come back.

I take cymbalata for fibromyalgia pain. It has worked wonders and I can do loads more. It was a gradual process and did take time to work, I had to switch dosages twice but I wouldn't be without it now. I suggest giving it a go.

Thank you for replying. What has been your symptoms for your pain? Were there any side effects? I am really struggling.

I have not had coccyx buttock pain for 10 years. What's happening to me. I have face pain, pelvic pain & now this. I don't feel like I can function anymore. Daughter is doing A levels & I just want to disappear. We are booked to go to Mexico for a 10 hour flight. I know I can stand but I can't understand why this is happening to me.

Sorry I'm just expressing how I feel. It's like I can't do it in RL anymore because my loved ones can't deal with me being upset anymore

hello, thank you. I just don't know what to do. The anxiety I have about all these symptoms have almost pushed me over the edge. I am scared that if I take the medicine even if it doesnt work I will have to take it for months. Did you have many side effects

Now my ankle hurts. What's going on. Feel like I'm in a nightmare. Haven't taken the cymbalta yet.
