  • From this study (21 hours ago):

  • Onset of symptoms started on third day of Savella Titration pack. Immediately stopped medicine (had the 3rd day am dose) by midday spasms and back pain severe, by 6pm unable to walk due to extreme pain. Sent to ER, no response to pain medicine, finally muscle relaxer allowed me to walk again. Sent home on Muscle relaxers. Had MRI - found 1 inch fluid cyst on Pancreas. 5 days later muscles no longer hurt, minimal back pain and able to walk again unassisted.
