My doctor finally put me on Cymbalta 30mg that is really helping and even helping my margarine headaches. I do know Fibromyalgia can make your eyes sensitive to light to were you can't drive at night. Since I have been taken the Cymbalta. I am so amazed on how it is working for me.

Hi Mary, I suffer from chronic daily headaches and migraines and yes sorry to say am sensitive to light I have had to have my glasses tinted and have had night glasses for driving. I find the glasses with the yellow lenses, (sorry forgot the name of them) great for driving in when it's dull or raining and find them better than sunglasses.

Glad to hear you have medication that is working for you, must be such a relief, as nothing worse than an evil migraine is the There?

If you don't where glasses Mary, it may be worth your while getting your eyes tested as I have found even walking into shops now a problem without my glasses.

Take care

Hi Mary.

Glad that the Cymbalta is helping. I expect you know it is an anti-depressant. I have been on it for years - same dose. My GP thought my fibro ws making me depressed which it was (inevitably) but I have heard that it can be used for aches and pains too.
