have reached breaking point now with my leg and foot pain all coming from my lower back facet joints awaiting a bilateral facet joint injection in march then if i have relief with that then denervetion of the facet joint nerves.
But at the moment i am unable to sleep or do many daily chores let along try to do my physical job with out being on 30/500 co codemal up to two four times a day i try to alternate and take one with 500mg of paracetamol but i am not getting total relief.
in evening i use tens to try and be comfortable to enable me to sit a while and watch telly.
I have now gone onto amitriptyline just to try and enable me to at lest get some sleep at night. tried these once before but flt hung over nearly all day but needs must not sure how i will manage to go and do a days work but at the moment thats not a concern to me just want to be in less pain its taking over my life
