Hey folks, I'm new to the 'daily strength' forums...had a question to send out...I was recently given the 'yes, you have chronic fatigue' diagnosis (something i'd suspected all along) from a rheumatologist after a year-long battle with a number of symptoms, including severe fatigue, heightened IBS problems, weakness, blood sugar drops, and a hazy/foggy sensation, all triggered by an acute GI illness last summer. My doctor has me on Cymbalta, saying it's effective in elevating energy levels and the foggy feeling for chronic fatigue. I've been on it a week and have felt like crap...i know I was told i'd feel worse for 2-3 weeks before i started to feel better, but it's getting frustrating. has anyone else had this experience and/or had an effective result from going on Cymbalta? I don't have fibromyalgia, so i'm not taking it for pain...also one of the reasons it's been hard to get that 'chronic fatigue' diagnosis from the myriad of specialists i've been to over the year...
