I have recently been diagnosed as having chronic pain syndrome radiating from my lower back. I have had 4 years of being passed from department to department. Scans, mri's, physio etc. I am actually relieved that I now have a diagnosis even though it was not the outcome I hoped for. I have been on regular naproxen for over a year now. My pain nurse has recommended amytrptillin( no idea if that is how you spell it) at night as I am regularly woken by the pain. Does anyone have any experience of this drug and what can I expect in terms of side effects? Thanks
