New here. I was diagnosed in 6/2012 & started of Effexor XR 75 mg that worked for 3 months & then lost all effect. Was then put on Cymbalta 30 mg with amazing results. I still had pain but it was very mild. About 4 weeks ago I started having localized pain for 3 to 5 days at a time which I would classify as a 9 or 10, but then it subsides. Then it will begin again in a new local. My friend asked if it ever worried me that it might be serious symptom of something not Fibro related. Now honestly this had never crossed my mind as I suffered with constant pain for 5 years before I was diagnosed. Just wondering if I should check it out or ride it out?
