    Today I had to take Cymbalta again. I had tried going without it for some time but this past week has been really bad. Whole body aches but lower body feels like joints being torn apart and muscle having knives stabbed in them. Couldn't take it anymore. Any suggestions please?

    I had the same reaction after being weaned off Cymbalta. After almost a month I started feeling like you. I went back on it but at only half the dose and it is working. I hope this helps you. I am also on Lyrica.
