Depression :: Duloxetine And Nightmares

I've been on duloxetine for about 18 months now (I think, my memory's awful) and have always had disturbed dreams and nightmares while I've been on it. Originally I was taking zolpidem 10 mg and Quetiapine 100mg at night but I've taken myself off of those over the last few months. The nightmares have gotten worse though, they're incredibly realistic. Last night I dreamt that I was drinking and I woke up heaving and with an intense headache like I was hungover. Then I managed to go back to sleep and after dreaming that I was back at my parents house and arguing with them, I woke up in such a state and my anxiety was so high I couldn't even move, I was struggling to breathe and scared because I was struggling to differentiate between what was real and what was a dream. I never wake up feeling rested and am constantly tired and yawning throughout the day, I've also been suffering more with headaches. Has anyone else on duloxetine had issues with sleep and dreams and is there anything that helps?

Fibromyalgia Syndrome :: Cymbalta/Duloxetine For Pain Not Depression

I had a very successful pain clinic appointment yesterday, by successful I mean i saw a Dr who wasn't a complete arrogant idiot, he was very nice and tried to think out of the box a little. I asked him for lidocaine patches and although he said he did not think they would work because of the pain being deep he was willing for me to try them, he couldn't prescribe them so he's written to my GP, he also suggested capsaicin cream and finally he thinks i should try cymbalta/duloxetine. I explained that id tried various anticonvulsants and hated them due to side effects and that i was not depressed (i probably should be) but i'm not, i get angry more than sad for the chronic situation but i don't feel hopeless and apart from super hellish days i cope fairly well. 

The thing is my little boy is my world, i'm so concerned taking an antidepressant when i don't feel depressed will kick off depression, especially if they don't work and i come off. I used to suffer with depression when i was younger and i know how horrible it is and when your i was in that cycle nothing or no one mattered anymore so i'm concerned as i'd rather continue to live in daily pain knowing my son is getting the "real" me than be on any meds that might change how i feel or how i am towards him. 

Does anyone have experience with these specific meds? Especially taking them for just pain and not depression?

Hip Replacement :: Experiences / Feedback / Reviews - Anyone?

I am on the waiting list for a new hip and I am a bit worried that I won't be able to do normal young person activities with my new hip. I am 37 years old and have been doing Zumba for years now and I really want to go back to it at some point. I also live in a flat so have stairs to deal with everyday.Will this be a problem?

I would really like to talk to some people of a similar age who have had the op and hear about their experiences of having a hip replacement.

Duloxetine :: Not All Bad

I have been on Cymbalta/Duloxetine for over two years now after having reactions to Sertraline etc. This was at 60mg and to be truthful it didn't do a lot. About 8 weeks ago this was doubled to 120 mg and this has increased my movement, mood and power to stay awake. It has also reduced my tremor.

I noticed I seem to be the only person on this level.

I am being queried following abnormal PET scan that indicated possible Parkinson's but DaT scan negative so not that. Also have mild Ischaemic changes in frontal lobes of the brain. All still under investigation. Has anyone else been prescribed this for same or similar problems?

Uterine Fibroids :: Myomectomy - Any Reviews / Feedback?

I have (5-6) small multi cervical fibroids and one approx 7cm pedunculated, in consultation with a very supportive medical practitioner I have decided to have, well it is my only option now because of the size of one the pedunculated one, a myomectomy. I feel ok about the decision as my periods are getting increasingly heavier and I know have constant lower back pain, which may be related to the fibroids. I need to have 4 injections every 4 weeks to try and shrink the fibroids to a more manageable size, however, this will bring on menopausal type symptoms. I have been given a prescription for Livial, which I am loathe to take. Has anyone had this procedure recently or within the past few years? I am concerned and a bit worried, to say the least, about having the procedure as most of the testimonials I have read appear to be generally dissatisfied, as the side effects were severe.

Laminectomy And Synovial Cyst - Reviews Or Feedback?

In January 2013 I started having left leg pains and started taking ibuprofens or store brand pain killers. Over the last 3 months the pain has become chronic, numbness in my big toe and foot, tingling, and pain in my buttock. This is only happening in my left leg. To make a LONG story short. The MRI showed a cyst pressing against my spine causing the pain. Initially my chiropractor thought is was a disc issue causing my sciatic nerve issues. My neurologist suggested a laminectomy Surgery however his concern was if I need fusion. I had an x-ray done that indicated there is some slipping. The neurologist gave me his best guestimation of how long that area of my back would last without the fusion. If he could have given me a high % that the fusion is necessary I would be at peace with it. Decisions, decisions. I was told the recovery is about 4 -6 weeks and longer with the fusion Do you have any knowledge on either procedure?

Hiatus Hernia Surgery Feedback / Reviews ?

I'm due to go in for surgery on Wednesday and a bit terrified as I always feel like I am choking when I eat food and the only way I can cope is by getting sick....not being able to do this after surgery has me freaked out bit time. Just hoping that the positives of having this done will take away the feeling of having food lodged in my throat and I can have a normal life. I've had this condition since I was 16 and I'm 39 now. Hopefully I will get better after this. Anyone going through this too or have gone through this and come out the other side? Could use some positive vibes right now.

Fluoxetine To Duloxetine?

I hope you're all making progress and feeling better.

I'll cut a long story short - I was taken off fluoxetine because I went really downhill. My Psychiatrist has given me Duloxetine which is an SSNI. It works on serotonin and nor.....?? I can't remember the spelling.

I'm reluctant to take it right now because I went on the forum for Duloxetine and haven't found many posts at all!! I think there are about 4-5 posts!!

Have any of you had this medication before? Any advice about what I should do? I don't mind the side effects, I'm just worried that my head's going to get messed up further.

Apart from all that, I feel a bit better having posted on here this morning cos I've not been on the forum for a while.

Uterine Fibroids Embolization - Reviews, Experiences, Feedback?

I'm a 30-year old woman with three medium-large uterine fibroids. At the time of my last ultrasound (July 2013), my uterus was at the size of about 14 weeks. I have another ultrasound coming up at the end of this month but, given how much I can now see/feel my fibroids when lying on my back, I suspect that they've grown.

I'm weighing my different treatment options, and I'm currently leaning toward uterine artery embolization. Has anyone out there undergone this treatment? What was your experience with it?

Pregnancy :: Breastfeeding Pros And Cons / Reviews / Feedback ?

Being a first time mom, I'm trying to get all of the input I can. Every post I see on here about breastfeeding is positive. With everything, there are always 2 sides. My question is, who planned on breastfeeding but didn't continue and why? Is there anyone who is unsure or doesn't plan on breastfeeding? Please don't give abrasive responses about how breastfeeding is the only way. I just want to see this aspect from all, unbiased points of view.
