Hi, I have been on Cymbalta and 15 mg. (per day) for about 6 months. Lately, I have been having terrible emotional lows. It starts with a shortness of breath, I am unable to settle down, anxious, nervous and increased agitation. I also have pains in chest and the right side of my neck, under my ear. And a ringing in my ear. It is getting worse. Has anyone else had these unsettling symptoms? I wonder if it is due to medication....? Thanks!

Thanks, 77grace. I have an appointment... new doctor. So, hope she can help me adjust meds. Seems like every 6 months I have to change medications. Gets tiresome after 30 years!

It sure sounds like you're experiencing panic attacks, but no one can tell based upon an internet message board.

Whilst these horrible symptoms may be something minor, it sounds as if you really should see your MD

Before considering any reason for this experience, your MD really should rule out some of the serious that can initially present as the sort of things that you're feeling.

If this is adverse effects of the prescribed meds, your MD may have some treatment options.

Best Wishes, and I hope that you get this problem straightened out.
