Hi tendertouch

I just wanted to wish you all the best of luck with your visit for an MRI. I will keep my fingers crossed for you that it comes back clear. I want to go to Hydrotherapy but my Physiotherapist said I could not do this because of my COPD.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Hi looks like ur being looked after and on the right path , I have found with amytriptline I wake up every 2hours but sleep heavy in the morning, also have vivid dreams on it , it's worth a try maybe my body has got used to it. Time for a change , that's all the help my doctor gives me. So I don't know what to ask for . Are you in the UK dear? Gentle Hug

If you have fibro have they

Put you on any antidepressants? Savella lyrics? They really can help

with pain. I also take pristiq.

Hope this is helpful. X

Not yet only lorazepam and diazepam to sleep. I do yoga and eat special organic food intolerant diet, which has helped a lot.

you need to give amytriptline about 5 weeks to get into you system,once you do they really work, so give it time hopefully it will be worth it mx
