I'm taking cymbalta for possible nerve damage which I may have surgery for in the next few weeks. I was taking both Lyrica/Neurontin but had side effects. I have been on cymbalta 30mg only cause so sensitive for 2 weeks and now 60mg. Has anyone seen any benefits or any non benefits. Also I'm taking a b complex vitamin in addition to my mutli. Also have nerve block shots. Anyhow has anyone done dietary changes that have helped with nerve issues. Ok one more has anyone had nerve surgery to help release a trapped nerve I think they called it and what is there experience?Thank you

Daniella,
Yes I have had three surgeries for a trapped nerve (ulnar nerve). The 1st surgery was great and brought a lot of relief for about one year. Then I felt like a pop in my arm almost as if something let go and I got the second one and the nerve was badly entrapped in scar tissue. The dr. was very reluctant to go into the arm a third time but afterwards was glad he did. The nerve was so badly encased in scar tissue that he had to search long and hard just to find it. The third time he placed the nerve in vascular tissue and the surgeon found a nueropathy. I was searching to find info about Cymbalta I am currently on 120mg daily. I loved it at first but have read horror stories about it. I can't tell you where I found it but I just searched it. I guess there are a lot of people who are trying to petition to get the FDA to pull it but you know it is all personal opinion. They suggested when you do try and decrease the dose that you open the capsule and take the beads with you finger and split it to make the detox easier- I would not do anything like that with out taking to a professional though. I was also on Nuerontin which I had bad side effects from and discontinued, and the Lyrica I discontinued because I felt it was not working for me. I also have Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy though and as you know we are all different and different things work for different people. I hope some of this helps and if you have anymore questions I am happy to help in anyway I can- good luck and I hope whatever you decide to do I hope it helps- Nikki
