I would guess even the most expert specialist physicians with neuromuscular stuff wouldn't know for sure what is going on. They could probably give it a name, but not a cause or cure, and maybe prescribe yet something else to help it.

But I aint a doctor, so what do I know.

My guess is the meds did not cause it. Instead, there was already a subthreshold inflammation thing going on that was not problematic. The meds in some way aggravated that inflammation. Either from an allergy to something in the pills (one of the fillers or food colorings), from boosted norepinephrine/adrenaline action which will tend to constrict/tighten muscles and tendons; or from an immune response triggering inflammation. Though maybe you weren't aware there was a problem, the meds highlighted the weak area you didn't know about.

My 2 cents theory anyway.

Milnacipran or Prozac did the same thing to me. A previously 100% controlled wrist tendonitis came back full force with finger numbness and wrist pain. It disappeared within days of stopping the offending med. Actually, they didn't cause the problem, it was already there, just asymptomatic, so minor and under the radar that I didn't feel it. The meds somehow triggered some kind of response that worsened the already existing situation from one that was invisible to one that was highly visible.
