I just started the Cymbalta and it has really helped me ...but I also have crohns disease and neck and back problems ;
What is concerning me is I cannot tell if what I am feeling is a result of the Cymbalta or my neck ( which is pretty bad )
I take 60mg at night and sleep okay - considering I never sleep anyway - the doc had given me trazadol but I have read that the 2 together are not good ! So I stopped taking the sleep med - average about
3 hours of straight sleep
Anyway I wake up and for most of the morning I feel nervous, or like my heart is beating faster ...
I have terrible headaches ( but I attribute that to my neck pain ??)
Last night I had tingling in my head and chills for hours ... I was so cold
then throughtout the night I was hot ...oy !
Oh ...I also had my Remicade treatment on Friday to which i had a really bad reaction ....so now I don't know if it from that !
Any one else on Cymbalta that can help ...
Also do you know of a sleep med that is safe since obvioulsy my doc doesn't : )
