Lyrica had me super sad....just started amitriptyline last night..25mg. Lights out!
Feel bad pain today.,but can't take it in the
Day cause I'd pass out on my 4yr old. I've tried tizanidine, Trazodone, Lyrica and now amitriptyline. I don't know what else there is out there so if anyone could let me know what they have tried and what's worked that would be great. I am extremely full of gas and very bloated in my upper stomach and I'm wondering if I I'm also lactose sensitive in my older age. And never really drink or eat anything with much lactose to I know that and the tribulation has lactose in it though not much I have not felt this bloated and all this pain from gas plus I've had surgery where they've actually put gas in my body. Is there anyone that can help me out? I have chronic pain and extreme back and neck issues that require surgery. My doctor is looking to take me off of the Oxycontin I've been on for 4 years that is 80 milligrams. She's trying to find a substitute but is still looking. She said something about a time release hydrocodone instead and I guess I don't know anything other than what I've been on which would be the fentanyl patch that actually worked well once I found the right dose and manufacture, I know that there are other patches that are like percocet or something else but the fat not actually works very well for me except my doctor is very leery of Fentanyl all around. She's my new doctor and I told her I've been on it before and it worked quite well and I was also scared of it in the beginning but as long as you take it as you're supposed to you are fine. I am new to having fibromyalgia flares bad as they are. I've always just been told I have nerve issues and was never really diagnosed but I have been on medication for fibromyalgia for a long time and was just told that it was for muscle spasms because I felt like at the time my doctor didn't want to diagnose me with anything she just wanted to treat me for my symptoms and didn't want to give the label to any of my crippling pain or find out what the cause was. But now I have a new doctor that is trying to actually do something and the first thing she wants to do is take me off of the Oxycontin that I have been on for so long and I'm very worried to have a seizure of which I have had before from withdrawal. She assured me that she would not put me in that position so I am hoping she is legit. I asked her why everyone's being pushed away from the sort of drugs and she said that the government only wants to give them to people who are literally dying. So I guess I will do some research on medication that will B similar to Oxycontin and see what I find. She is also researching as well. But she wants me off in 2 months and I don't know how I feel about this amitriptyline but what about booze bar I know that's not how it's spelled but I'm using my voice to text. Any info would be great sorry for such a long post but I really do need help trying to get on the right path for my chronic pain, anxiety attacks, ptsd, depression and fibro flares without having to worry so much about withdrawal and side effects of gas pain or weight gain, thanks in advance.
