Recently my doc suggested I try Cymbalta for back pain. I am an avid reader of all things medical and find it hard to believe that an antidepressant like Cymbalta can help ease back pain. The doctor thinks my stress is exacerbating the back pain and thinks its worth a shot, but I find it tough to buy that idea, feels downright silly to me. I just dont think it will work for my back pain. Anyone here have any personal views and experiences on Cymbalta working to relieve pain?
