I have diabetic neuropathy for almost three years now, in the begining when diagnosed I had very bad tingling pins and needles and at times burning sensation in my feet, my doctor put on Cymbalta 30 mg dialy to start, this started to make my feet feel better but still had the problems so after a few weeks he changed the dosage 60 mg and my feet much better it took those problem away. U was wondering if anyone took this medicine and had sucess

good luck battling the neuropathy — always be careful with issues concerning the feet. us diabetics are at such high risk for amputation/etc, so i would advise keeping checking in with your doctor to make sure everything is managed ok
