I suffer from a chronic pain condition called myofascial pain syndrome - nerve damage with trigger points.
I’m on pregablin 100mg twice a day - any more gives me bad side effects
Amitriptyline 75mg at night
Butec 20mcg/hr patches
Paracetamol 8 per day
Then oral oramorph for triggers and really bad days
My question is there any alternative to the oramorph?
I don’t get on with codeine, I also have diazepam which offers relief but obviously this is only to be used on very rare occasions as doctors aren’t keen to prescribe it that often.
I’m off to pain clinic very soon and would love to take some ideas with me that may help me.
Many thanks in advance for any help offered
