    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    I've been taking Cymbalta for Fybromyalgia and had taken myself off it. Today I took it again. I've had a week of my whole body being sore and hurting but my lower body feels like it's being torn apart. Limb from limb, muscle from muscle. Doctor tells me I have Central Sensitivity Syndrome. Does anyone out there know about this?

    I am not knowlegable about this syndrome you are talking of, you can post to DR P here and see what he says?

    I would like to know why you would take yourself off the cymalta if it was helping and I hope you tapered it? An acute stoppage can do you some withdrawls......

    I hope you are feeling better today as I wrote this. Check with Dr P, OK?
