I'm actually feeling a bit fobbed off and ignored. Since my lap in November I've had fairly constant lower back pain when lying down. I used to only get it during my period, which was apparently due to having endo on both uterosacral ligaments which was excised. I've also recently started getting pain in my ovary again. Today I coughed and I had a severe sharp pain in my right ovary, along with a strange warm, wet sensation in my thigh. Ever since it's ached and all down my right leg ached.
When I saw my gp about it she didn't seem at all bothered about what was causing the pain, only that it was affecting my sleep. So she's prescribed me 10mg amytriptiline. I'm a psychiatric nurse so I know amytriptiline as an antidepressant, but I know it's also used in management of chronic pain, specifically nerve pain. I know it also causes drowsiness, which as a community nurse who drives at least 50 miles per day, concerns me.
I don't know whether to take it and see what happens or if I should push it? I do feel there's more going on here and I'm not being listened to, but I don't want to be thought of as a malingerer or hypochondriac.
Has anyone else ever tried amytriptiline for pain?
Has anyone else had pain from endo 3 months after surgery?
