Hello all, I'm new to this, been in pain for years, also have DDD and herniated disk, just been diagnosed with fibro and am about to start taking Duloxetine, I was wondering if anyone else has taken this and their experience with it. Thanks Tara.

:wave: :wave: and :welcome: to the forum.

There is lots of info and advice across the boards so have a look and a read as you find your way round. There are a few mentions of Duloxetine, hopefully there will be something helpful about the med.

It's not a med I've tried so far, so no advice from me I'm afraid. Some anti~depressants have been found to help with nerve pain and sleep problems, hopefully you'll find that the Duloxetine works for you :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Just ask if there is anything you want to know about and we'll try to help you with it :wave: :wave: :wave:

Thanks for the lovely welcome (totally agree with the dog quote lol). Its lovely to know There's some support out there, spent so long thinking I waas on my own, have recently had to give up my job, so I expect many others will know how low this can make you feel. Looking forwrd to getting some advice from those in the know. Many thanks.

You're very definitely not on your own with this, and there's plenty of support on here :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: And if that doesn't help, we can always resort to a bit of :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

A lot of us have had to give up work, so we more than understand how it can drag you down. I know things look somewhat bleak at the moment, but there are bits of light there still and as you find the right way for you to manage and live with FM, things will start to brighten up 8-) 8-) 8-)

My doglet lives by the quote, and she's usually right with it :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Hi, I'm sort of new-ish. Joined a few weeks ago, been waiting for a diagnosis.

Had a phone call from ATOS this morning at work as I have been referred by work, they say I have FMS and chronic fatigue. I'm now waiting to be accepted by the pain clinic in my town.

Good news with the diagnosis but now wondering what happens next.....

Soft hugs to everyone

Hi to both of you and :welcome: to the forum :wave: Jivebunnie the pain clinic should be able to help :fingerscrossed: but maybe a trip to your docs now you have a diagnosis and they can start a pain relief strategy

:welcome: to the forum :wave:

I take Duloxetine, it can take a few weeks to get into your system, you might find you get the side affects before the med kicks in.
I found it was making me feel very woozy & light headed so i took mine of an evening so i slept through the side affects. :goodluck1: with yours.
