Update on my CPS

Recommended Posts

You've all been my best supporters through this and kept lifting me up when every trial didn't work and I got frustrated. Well, this trial with Cymbalta (duluxatine) has worked. 30 mg in the morning and I have a 25-30% reduction in the pain. I initially called the neurologist after 3 weeks and told him no effect, he said give it a couple more weeks, within that period I noticed that the pain was dropping somewhat then wokeup one morning and realized the AC wasn't burning my skin. To be sure I still feel it but the difference between a 7/8 and 4/5 on the pain scale is much more tolerable.

Thanks to you all for the support and putting up with me through this.

Great News. Over time + your new PT regimen, hopefully further improvements. There are differences between good and bad MDs and looks like u found a good one. Makes all difference in the world

My CPS continued to improve after my last update and plateaued a couple weeks ago. It is mostly an annoying little urchin that follows me around but I can ignore it quite often. I still feel things like my jeans on my leg as a cool but not painfully cold sensation. My daughter in law introduced me to scrubs which are great for reducing that touch sensation.

The pain still does a bit of ambush attacks which can be very intense but it isn't constant like it used to be, I can go as much as a week without it jumping out at me which is all you can really ask for. It remains manageable and tolerable for the most part for now.
