I had my last dose of Cymbalta Dec. 23, 2017.
I'd had 2 disc fusions around 1999 and 2004. Mild scoliosis has also caused bilateral hip bursitis.
Cortisone injections were alleviating the pain in the hips that felt like I had a 60-pound belt on my
hips when I was on Cymbalta. Cymbalta had relieved the hip bursitis do some degree which is why
I'd originally gotten "hooked" on it.
Is the constant hip pain due to the Cymbalta withdrawal? Has anyone had this before in this situation?
I see two pain doctors this week - Orthopedic tomorrow for a possible labral tear in the left femur
and my regular pain doc on Thursday.
Since you guys know more than doctors will ever convey, I'm wondering if the withdrawal is going to
hang on to the joints for a while. And if so, any ideas on how long it will last?
Thank you for your insight!!
