However went to the doctors 2 weeks ago as not been sleeping for months due to waking up with pain in shoulders, under the chest pain also suffer IBS which I have suffered with since the age of 13 however not diagnosed until 12 years ago. Dr put me on 10mg Amitriptyline saying start on 1 tablet but can increase to 2 which I did after 5 days, also took some blood. Went back to see Dr for results yesterday all came back clear, she has upped my dose to 25mg as the tablets have helped the pain but not helped me sleep. Dr has not given me a diagnosis just said she is treating me for chronic pain and fatigue and to go back if the increase in medication doesn't help. What do you all think? Any help would be very appreciated. ( I am a Female 43) Thanks xx
