Cymbalta 60 caps for painful feet

An endicrinologist prescribed this medication for treatment of my painful feet. The pamphlet indicates that it is depression medication. I don't suffer from depression at all. I'm not overweight, don't have diabetes, are 49. Painful feet occurs whenever I'm on my feet for about 2 hours. Orthopedic surgeon diagnosed plantar faciitis as the pain starts in the heel area and spreads to the front of the foot and up to the knees. I am desperate but am scared to take Cymbalta. What is the relation between the depression medication and painful feet?

I was prescribed cymbalta for constant pain with Fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. It defintely works. My feet were so bad it looked like I had a few months before I was wheelchair bound. As long as I take the Cymbalta, I now lead a oretty normal life.
