Thanks for the responses. So, it is possible that this is a withdrawal symptom and my body will get over this eventually? That it will repair the damage the Cymbalta has done to cause this?
I have a few other symptoms.. depressed, insomnia, feeling hopeless. Although, if I had any kind of life I don't think I would be this depressed. But, nothing as bad as this abdomen pressure which is causing rib pain. I thought I was just getting fat so I went on a diet and lost 25 pounds. My belly did not reduce one millimeter. As I stated above I cannot sit more than a few minutes. I have been house bound for 2 months. I can't sit and have dinner with my family or ride in a car. I lay on the couch or in my bed. It feels like there is a ball inside me that is constantly being pumped up with air. My abdomen and ribs are sore.
I honestly don't know how much longer I can live like this. The Dr's feel that the Cymbalta changed the function of my stomach and intestines and they now aren't working properly, maybe slowed my digestion. The have mentioned nerve problems. They really don't know. Besides the Cymbalta which they say will help with my nerve problems and pain they have suggested trying a low dose Tricyclic or maybe bupropion (Wellbutrin). None of the Dr's have said that my body will repair itself.
None of the Psychiatrist I have talked to know anything about these drugs and GI problems and how they change your microbiome.
Does anyone know of a psychiatrist or Dr. that really knows about the brain and gut connection? None of the Dr's I have seen know anything about this. I live in Florida but will travel anywhere for some hope! Thanks for your help!
