One thought on “Cymbalta for fibromyalgia

  1. I agree after reading the post, and here is my comment – The precise reason for any abnormal autoimmunity that causes lupus is not known. Inherited genes, viruses, ultraviolet light, and drugs may perhaps all play some role. The genes some people inherit seem to improve the tendency of acquiring autoimmune diseases, and autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and immune thyroid disorders are a lot more typical among relatives of patients with lupus than the total population.
