Hi, Emily, and welcome! Boy, you sure had a bad reaction to Cymbalta, didn't you! It is strange how people react to different medications. Many people have good success with this drug and others totally hate it just like you do. But, you will find what will work for you.
You haven't ruined your life. You have had a speed bump on your journey. You have come over it and are heading on in the right direction for you. I'm glad you came to the realization that this med was not for you. If you read back posts, you will see other medications that people have had problems with. Unfortunately, this goes with the fibro territory. It's a trial and error situation to find the right medication.
Be sure to read Fibro 101...the first thread on the forum. There are links to good information about fibro and you will learn a lot that might help you get control of your pain. Don't hesitate to ask questions, either. We are here to help you.
I'm so glad you found us and joined in. I hope to hear more from you soon!
