I have a severe case of Crohn's Disease and deal with chronic abdominal pain, my pain management doctor told me that it is probably from my superior hypogastric nerve. I read that Cymbalta is good for nerve pain, has anyone ever taken it for the type of pain I am experiencing with good results? I also experience mild depression from living with such a debilitating chronic illness, I hope this antidepressant helps because I've tried several other antidepressants and none of them helped much.
