Does Anyone Here Have Central Pain?

Does Anyone Here Have Central Pain?

I was just diagnosed with central pain. I read that it is a rare condition. I started Cymbalta today, not enough time to tell, but so far so good.

Roger that! Its a numbness that feels like pain in my neck after the numbness subsides in my arms. 5-10 minutes.

Pain and PD go together along with the wonderful aging process and arthritis. They should call our "golden years" "grin and bear it". I have not been diagnosed with central pain but my body hates me. There is a newer drug called Advil dual action . Good Luck.

Sulyn I hope it lasts because pain is so debilitating you can cope with anything when pain is gone!

Erinanne, I need to get more info from my dr. I was so glad to know that I would be getting some relief, I didn’t ask any questions. I have an appointment again on Monday and am making a list of questions now. According to what I read on the internet, I will have this for all of my life. I’ve only taken the medication for 2 days now. it is very effective. Most of my pain is gone. If this lasts, I can deal with my pd symptoms. They are mild. I am just beginning my pd journey.

JWRN I asked my doctor about Advil dual action but he told me it would not be compatible with my other meds. Instead he is having me take Tylenol Arthritis which only helps a little. Thank you for your info though.
