Body Aches (Definition)

Muscle pain is most frequently related to tension, overuse, or muscle injury from exercise or physically-demanding work.

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

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

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

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

Subacute thyroiditis: Hi. Assuming you're not taking thyroid hormone, it sounds like you've had a subacute thyroiditis, in which the inflamed and stunned thyroid suffers a temporary shutdown. Over several months you go from normal to hyper, back through normal to hypo, then usually back to normal. Symptoms vary all over the place, and yours aren't the most common, they could be related. See how it goes when back normal ...Read more
