Good sleep

Hi All,

I've had 3 good nights sleep so far since starting the Amtriptaline on Friday - I still can't quite believe that I'm not waking up on and off all night even just to turn over. It usually takes forever to get back to sleep with all the joint pain. I am pacing myself doing the usual jobs because I feel that I have more energy than normal but thats probably to do with having more sleep. I hate that feeling as if you've hit a brick wall and not able to do anything - I wonder why my own doctor never thought to give me those drugs to help me instead of waiting all this time???

Hope it's a good day for you all too :) x
