Hello, I am wondering if Withdrawal symptoms can cause Stomach

Customer Question

Hello,
I am wondering if Withdrawal symptoms can cause Stomach pain which is so intense that I am crying in pain so much. I am being taken of duloextine slowly as it is not working, and being replaced with Lofepramine. I have polycystic ovaries and the pain is right on my right hand side where the worst ovary is, It is very intense and constant at the moment, I am finding it very hard to drink or eat!
I have also vomited and running a temp but I don't know whether it is todo with the withdrawals or something else

Hello and welcome to Just Answer.

What drug are you withdrawing from? Abdominal pain occurs with heroin and narcotic withdrawal and is very common. It is a severe cramping pain. It can be managed with medications but often hospitalization is needed.

Generally polycystic ovarian syndrome does not cause pain. It may cause pain if a cyst becomes large and bursts, this release blood into the pelvic cavity. The irritation causes pain. It may also cause pain if a cyst becomes large and turns on itself. This is ovarian torsion. It is a medical emergency requring immediate surgery.

I hope this information is helpful to you and that you feel better soon.

Hello,


I am withdrawing Duloxetine it's being done very slowly but the pain is severe.


I also have fibromyalgia

Expert:  Dr. K. replied 3 years ago.
Abdominal pain is not common with withdrawal from Cymbalta and it would not be this severe. You should really consider seeing your Dr.

Ok is it likely to be the ovary?

Expert:  Dr. K. replied 3 years ago.
Its hard to say what it is likely to be. We can only give information not medical advice as we cant examine you. You must get yourself to a Dr as soon as possible.
