How awful for you! My heart hurts for you! I too have Baclophen on hand prn. My dr offered me Cymbalta but I have not tried it yet. I take Lyrica three times a day.
Would you recommend Cymbalta? How are u doing on it?
Has your dr discussed Mast Cell releases with you? Mast Cells release Histamine when we eat a food our body is intolerant of. Histamine makes me then red all over for an hr, then the painful itching starts. As soon as I feel a Mast Cell release getting started I take an Allegra 24 hr caplet. That prevents Mast Cell releases. So we need to stay on 24 Hr Non-drowsy Allegra all the time.

And avoid foods high and moderate in Histamine. Unfortunately there are many. You can Google about these foods.

I have been taking Cymbalta for a long time and it doesn’t seem to make me feel any different.
