Hi I was looking for a bit of advice. I have been taking amitriptyline now for 3 years 2 years ago I was diagnosed with osteopenia. I recently found out that they think amitriptyline is bad for anyone with osteopenia or osteoporosis. When I spoke to my gp he said it had not been confirmed yet Wether there is a link to this. As I have been.on here before I have said about my whole list of problems with my back. My gp would not refer me to get an mri scan done so I had to take out a.loan to pay for one privately. This last mri scan I had done was in 2010. The results of the new mri scan were wild my gp said your back is a total mess at the bottom of my spine. He was refusing to speak to surgeon and try and get things sorted. He said give me 2 weeks and I will get speaking to surgeon he knows I rang 3 weeks later he said he couldn't get hold of him as he's very busy he told me to ring him the following week which I did and he said the surgeon said no he wouldn't operate. My gp is lying to me and fobbing me off with tablets. I'm getting to the point at 37 that my life will be tablets galore. I can't stand anymore than 5-10 mins at a time. Walking is the same. I'm putting on loads of weight and can hardly exercise as I'm in agony after 10mins it's a vicious circle.
