About Cymbalta

I was prescribed Cymbalta last September for pain in my hands and feet post GBS. Diagnosed 12/79 and recovered (?) by 6/80, I have had some fatigue and very little other symptoms until last year when I began a very agressive weight loss/workout program. Pain started very soon after that. I attributed it to carrying hand weights while walking. Doc sent me for EMG and said I had severe carpal tunnel, prescribed Cymbalta. 30mg then 60mg after 3 weeks. I struggled very hard to keep the weight off, but have now gained all back. I believe Cymbalta is an apetite stimulant. I was ravenous and never satisfied.
