I suffer from abdominal pain and was diagnosed with inguinal left sided hernia.
A repair was done but the pain remains
My pain specialist prescribed Gabapentin and I took this in increased dosage over 6 months.
It had peculiar side effects with little effect on the pain.
I read, I think it was on the M Fox website, that Duloxetine was being researched as being beneficial to people with Parkinson's it also had pain relief properties.
My pain specialist prescribed this and within 3 weeks the pain subsided, my mood was lifted ( Duloxetine is mainly prescribed for depression) and was generally more active.
Anyone else tried this or any other comments for or against?
