Hi everyone. Just thought i`d update with the latest going on here. My 50mg dose of Amitriptyline was reduced back to 25mg by my doctor to stop my heart palpitations, but now my pain has increased again. I have an appointment with a neurologist on the 27th of June (i was referred after an mri scan picked up abnormalities with my optic nerves), and it looks like i might have to have tests done, as i found out from my doctor last week that the hospital suspect i could have intracranial hypertension. I`ve had trouble with headaches on and off for a few years, but the doctors have said they were stress related, tension headaches, my depression, my FMS, or even chronic daily headache syndrome! I can`t remember the last time i didn`t have a headache, and have recently had to stock up on paracetamol and ibruprofen. I now have over five weeks to wait to see what the neurologist says, but i`m so impatient and wish it was this week! Here`s hoping the next five weeks fly by! xxx
