Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 years ago):
I have tendinitis in my feet, ankles, achilles, knees, and shoulders. I have been treating all of it with moderate success. I also have hyperthyroidism caused by graves disease which I just started treating with medication.
3 days ago, I added Savella to the mix to help with the pain but mostly to manage my depression. Since then, I have had pain and swelling in my wrists, more pain in my lower back, and excess pain in my joints that I kow for sure is not caused by tendinitis. Of course I have had sweating/hot flashes, fatigue and bad nausea from Savella too, but the joint pain and weird swelling is what is worrying me.
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):

I would like to know if the site of the pain is right or better to inject into
