After a MRI and exam, my dr has diagnosed me with severe arthritis down my spine starting in my cervical area. She has me on Cymbalta 30mg, Amlodipine (for Raynauds), Tizanidine, and Hydrocodon. I have had 2 neck surgiers which unfortantely has added to the arthritis. I am only 33 years old and she says my MRI looks like an 80 something year old woman's spine.
I have only been on the Cymbalta for a little over 1 week. Not sure if I am having sucess yet. I have not had ANY of the nasty sides effects, except for waking up in middle of night wide awake. But even that is getting better and easier to go back to sleep.
Just trying to reach out and see if anyone else is in the same boat.
