Hi everyone, just thought i`d update on what`s been happening with me. Up until a month ago i was only taking paracetamol and ibruprofen for my Fibro, but the pain was becoming too much, so i visited my doctor who prescribed 25mg of Amitriptyline, and then doubled it to 50mg two weeks later. Just before that though i had my Trazadone upped from 100mg to 150mg for my depression. That seemed to lift my mood, plus with the help of therapy i felt like i was finally heading in the right direction.The Amitriptyline is helping with the pains, but i`ve been getting heart palpatations. My regular heart rate is about 70bpm, but it`s been going as high as 120bpm. My doctor sent me for an ECG and blood tests, but they all came back normal, but i`m seeing him again on the 16th of April. I also got the results from my head MRI yesterday (i`ve had constant tinnitus for about 2 years), which showed nothing sinister going on with my ear, but it showed i have a problem with both optical nerves behind both eyes which is causing pressure and could well be the cause of my daily headaches (i just thought it was another symptom of the Fibro!). I`m now being referred to neurology, and should hear from them in a few weeks. I was close to tears when i left though. Why does something always happen just when you think you`re finally getting yourself sorted??? :0(
