Are body aches / pain a side effect of cymbalta (duloxetine)?

Are body aches / pain a side effect  of cymbalta (duloxetine)?

Not likely: Less than 2% of those studied with Cymbalta (duloxetine) complained of body aches. This was similar to placebo. I tell my patients that all meds cause side effects and if the only thing new in your life is the addition of Cymbalta (duloxetine) than that be the the culprit. Many side effects we cease if you continue the medication. You should discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

After DRESS syndrome felt due to a spinal orthopedic implant, the implant was removed but the patient developed body aches, electrical sensation.....?

Cobalt Chrome Allergy: This is a difficult situation as removal of the implants does not mean that all of the cobalt has been removed. I am aware of two types of facet replacement and both utilize metal on metal technology that will result in metal and ionic debris that can still persist after the implants have been removed. Given the severity of your symptoms, small amounts of retained cobalt in scar tissue around the implants is likely the source of continued symptoms and there are no reliable methods to eradicate any remaining metal deposits. The lateral thigh symptoms are consistent with compression of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerves and the most common cause is from positioning during lumbar surgery in the prone position. ...Read more

How can I solve my stomach aches and frequent urinating problems when cymbalta (duloxetine) wears off?

How can I solve my stomach aches and frequent urinating problems when cymbalta (duloxetine) wears off?

Taper slowly.: Your question is not clear. If you are stopping Cymbalta (duloxetine) and have these problems then a long slow taper over 4-6 weeks is necessary for some folks. If you are taking the medication regularly tehn the half-life of the medication is long enough not to be the cause and further evaluation needs to be undertaken. ...Read more

I have chronic heath aches. One everyday a migraine once a week. I have tried everything from tramadol to cymbalta and topamax (topiramate). I don't know what to do!  my doctor doesn't listen?

Headaches?: Well, i'd start with a doctor that's old-fashioned and sits down, and listens to your every word... Then, asks intelligent, probing questions and only after getting a complete, thorough history, performs a good physical exam and gathers whatever lab studies deemed necessary. Too many doctors are rushed, and don't get the whole story. At the very least, they should hear you out, for starters... ...Read more

What are the causes of sleep problems and body aches?

What are the causes of sleep problems and body aches?

Many factors: Body aches, by themselves, can cause sleep problems. Poor sleep is usually due to being aroused from sleep and this is often due to pain from some area of the body. An over the counter pain medication such as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) taken one hour before retiring can help alleviate aches while sleeping. A 'sleep study' can provide more data-see your doctor for more info. ...Read more

Can spending too much time in bed cause muscle deconditioning? I used to live a very active lifestyle but last 3 months nothing i get body aches...

Yes, but...: Deconditioning can certainly be caused by spending too much time in bed, yes. I would be more concerned, however, about why a 21-year-old is having the body aches and is needing to spend so much time in bed. I would certainly consider talking to a primary care doctor about these complaints as they can be sign of a medical condition. ...Read more
