Dealing with Pain

The MRI showed 'no changes'. I had a consult with a Pain Clinic and got a spinal block that is targeting the pain in my right leg. I also started taking Cymbalta which blocks certain pain impulses from the brain. Cymbalta is also used for people with depression and generalized anxiety disorder- which is really just more pain. According to the informational insert, Cymbalta 'helps maintain mental balance.' So, no physical pain plus no mental pain. It's kind-of a 2-for-1 deal.
