I have a question.... I have been insanely tired for the last 1-2 years. I get 7+ hours nightly and I can sleep 12+ hours and still be tired. I have absolutely no desire to do anything other than be curled up on a chair with a book or my iPad. I have pain throughout my body, neck/shoulders, lower back, knees, ankles, elbows, hands, thigh muscles. As far as I know I don't have the tenderness at the trigger points. I saw my doctor last week for the pain thinking it might be hypermobility syndrome and a month ago for a chronic headache. I also saw him in the spring for my fatigue. Last night read about fibromyalgia and that Cymbalta can be a treatment. I've been taking Cymbalta 60 mg for over 3 years now for depression. Not that I want fibromyalgia... but I seem to fit the profile; I'm 45, experiencing perimenopause, suffer depression and anxiety, have a diagnosed of PTSD from past domestic violence, nothing touches the pain or my headache. I just don't have the trigger point pain. So my question is ..... Would the Cymbalta alleviate the trigger point pain? My doctor ordered x-rays on my tender joints and ordered rheumatological blood screenings. Thank you all for any advice, assistance, and/or input you can offer.
