I was on Cymbalta for about a year and switched to Savella when it came out. It seemed to help but now I think the dosage needs to be increased and I am hesitant to do that as I have FINALLY realized that both of these meds cause extreme sweating! My heat level is so unbearable that it is ridiculous. I live in Ohio and sleep nude with no covers in house that is kept at 65 at night! I can break into a sweat for absolutely no reason. At work I have a fan I carry everywhere with me. I cannot take this anymore it is worse than hot flashes!
On another note - I have been getting massages once a week at the massage school near me. This helps tremendously. This past weekend friday, saturday and sunday I was in so much pain I was ready to go to the hospital to see if it was something other than my fibro (bladder infection, etd.) I went for my massage and the girl spent the whole hour working my back and gluts! Oh my gosh it hurt so good! I went home took a hot shower and laid down for an hour and I was 50% better! Today I am feeling pretty good and made it to work.
So if you can try massage therapy. It is wonderful. from now on I am going for only my back and gluts since those are my problem areas.
