From this study (2 days ago):
Had gained weight and lost weight and gained it back.
From this study (1 week ago):
I had 14 dextrose/lidocaine injections on Feb 17. I was taking cymbalta. I passed out during the procedure, spent the following 2 weeks in a rapid cycling mental state, in severe fibromyalgia type pain all over. The pain was like brain freeze in your arms and legs. I rubbed them to the point of severe bruising. I was finally hospitalized for 3 days and had most meds changed. I believe there is a link between the injections and my symptoms. Either the injection caused my Cymbalta to stop absorbing in my system or it was Serotonin Syndrome.
