I also started taking cymbalta for the pain from my osteoarthritis. Like you, I didn't feel like I was depressed. After taking the cymbalta for 2-3 weeks, I not only found that it was working on my pain, but noticed that I felt better emotionally too. I suppose it never really dawned on me that dealing with chronic pain that it's bound to wear you down and add to your stress levels. You're probably as conditioned as I was to just endure the pain and go on. But as the pain decreased, I became aware of how much better (physically and emotionally) I felt. I think that it would surely be worth a try.
