    Hi Raphael,

    Oop’s sorry it’s my age 60mg it is, dread to think the side effects of 600mg.

    Five days of Duloxetine 600mg, think there might be a slight improvement in my back pain or it could be one of my better pain days, hoping anyway.
    Not so keen on the side effects muzzy head, stomach pain, restlessness, sweating, trembling or shaking, dizziness.

    Thanks for your reply Nikki.

    Sounds a familiar tale to me, I have recently been on 2700mg of Gabapentin, but did not help.

    Will see how the Duloxetine goes, thanks for the warning about feeling sick, as you say stay strong.

    Take care.

    Thanks for your reply.

    The MRI scans that I have had show that I have trapped nerve which is why 18 months ago I had surgery to release the nerve, unfortunately that did not make any difference and when I returned to the hospital I was told that I would have to live with it!!

    Previous to this I have had a facet joint injection and a year later a L5 nerve root block, neither gave any pain relief.

    Medication over the years I Have been prescribed Co-codamol, Amitriptyline, Gabapentin, Tramadol and Pregabalin. None of which have made any difference to the pain.

    Also was referred to pain clinic who gave up on me after the injections and medication did not work, have tried acupuncture, physio and an osteopath but still have the pain.
