I have been taking Amitriptyline and Lyrica for my 'restless legs syndrome' where my skin is so sensitive at night, I cannot bear the sheets or pillow cases touching me, and can feel every crease - I also now wear PJs to separate myself from my bedding. I sleep on pillows mostly, with only my backside and back on the mattress. This feeling used to be on the skin of my thighs and at night only or my worst days feeling bruised.
But now the skin of my knee area is feeling odd. I live in trousers and that is becoming increasingly difficult to cope with. The pressure of a bent knee and the fabric touching my skin or the movement of the fabic - I don't know what to do. I guess another visit to the doctor and an increase in my meds are called for again as my right knee is going the same way. My knees themselves are complaining more and more now as my hips are letting up for a bit.
My flat shoes are too clumpy for skirts and I am becoming depressed, [pmt doesn't help].thinking not only do I have to put up with FM but will also have to look awful.
I think it might help to know others are feeling the same or similar?
