A few weeks ago I was advised to increase my amitryptyline from 10mgs to 50mgs.
For the last week my legs have been numb and walking almost impossible. It takes so much effort just to move my legs, it was like they were no longer part of my body. I couldn't even turn over in bed. I forgot to take my tablets on Wednesday night and yesterday feeling started coming back in both legs. I am in a dilema now, do I stay off the meds and put up with the pain so at least I can feel something, or do I take the meds and end up in a wheelchair ? I have tried Tramodol in the past but these triggered terrible migraines. I have tried co-codamol, but if I take some one day, the pain is doubled the next !!! I really don't know what to do now. Some days the pain is so bad that I am yelling out every time I try to move. Is there anything else I can try ? My system seems to reject so many medications that I am at my wits end. Any advise would be much appreciated.
