Hi, I'm new to this group and hoping to find someone who can help explain and understand how horrible my life has been. I started cymbalta over 10 years ago for treatment for leg pain and depression. Every M.D. I've talked to about getting off of it has advised against it. Last year I started with involuntary muscle twitching which can be anywhere from my toes to my facial muscles. Then in January I was diagnosed with central sleep apnea. I had to have 3 separate sleep studies because the physician and my insurance company all believed that the diagnosis of CSA was incorrect. All 3 test were conclusive for Central sleep apnea. There is not one person who can explain to my why this is happening to me and at best I was told it is due to a " chemical embalance. " Is anyone else going through or experiencing this while on cymbalta ?
I had a heart attack 8 weeks ago and 2 stents in right heart and placed on Effient and 81 aspirin Also Lipitor although I don't have high cholesterol and a bp 1/2 pill only 6 weeks since I don't have high bp. 4 days after I started Effient was beginning of terrible diarrhea and a few times vomitted. I have had every blood test and blood culture along with urine and anal swabs and procto sigmoidacopy and all negative ! No one wants to believe Effient is the cause of my terrible chronic diarrhea Not the cardiologist not Infectious disease doctor nor the gastroenterologist. It has to be the cause. No other changes in my life !! I can't go on this way. I have lost 10 pounds in five weeks because not eating right for fear of the diarrhea, I read here that others have had this same problem. What do I do ??
