For those of you who are in pain a lot and everything hurts..back, knees, legs, hips....wrists...elbows.....NECK... back of head..
I had been on Celebrex for a while till I started fainting. Then I read the side effects of it and one of them included strokes..
So that sort of pissed me off. I called my MD and said..thanks a lot! As if I don't feel bad enough now you are trying to kill me!
He said, well it is not a permanent solution. Well, thanks again. How stupid. Here take this and you will feel better for a couple of months but it could kill you. So then if you survive you will go back to being in horrible pain... gezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
So then I told my pharma phyciastrist...so exp. me to be able to spell that one. The are the cliff note sort of Dr.s that specialize in medicating you so that you can function. Like be able to walk and do things. Live sort of. lol
I told him that I was sick of being in pain and not knowing what days I would not be able to walk. I did not have the option of not getting out of bed. I have two kids to take to school. Thank god it was only two streets away and I have a golf cart. never mind that I hit a cop car parked in front of the school one day...lol. Thank goodness they like me. When in doubt, always take your local police station candy for the holidays.
Anyways...he put me on CYMBALTA and it got rid of all of my pain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I knew everyday that I would be able to walk. It was great. It also helped with the cronic fatique and the depression..three in one.
It is used a lot for people that are loosing arms and legs to diabetes!
So if it works for them.
