  • I've had all over pain for 4 months, starting with pains in left abdomen, spreading to left leg, upper back, and then right abdomen. MRI's,xrays,blood work all shows normal. Physical activity and stress worsens symptoms. Seen hernia doctor said was normal, Neurologist diagnosed me with high anxiety and put me on Cymbalta. Primary has me on the cyclobenzaprine for the pain which I was told to only take at night because I have extreme fatigue. My pain has decreased tremendously since being on the Cymbalta but now I have found my left nipple to leak white fluid and blood when stimulated, noticed it while showering.My left breast and area around breast seems extremely sore.
