I am sorry you have to have hurt at such a young age. It's hard to understand why you got picked to suffer, and a pain that others can't understand how much you hurt. We at this web sight do understand pain and how it can drag you down.
It's strange in a way, just how much pain a your body can handle, and If you can get a good Psychologist it helps a lot. one who is trained and can help you deal with pain and the emotional part that comes with it. Which is the last turn in the circle of dealing with pain. I don't have fibromialgia, but work for years with a woman who had it. I have read that a lot of doctors now see Cymbalta as something good to give to depressed people who also have somatic (physical [pain]) complaints. I wish you well my friend and feel free to ask questions here.
If you are asking why would an anti depressant be prescribed for pain, all I can say is it's a known fact certain ones like Lyrica that Maso mentioned, really do work on nerve pain. Cymbalta is one of them. If we misunderstood your question, please let us know so we can try to help you out. I agree very much with Bucky. You are way to young to suffer with this condition! Stay strong and remember, it takes time for these meds to start working.
My best wishes,
