is there anything that has helped you, what dose you are on and also what else have you tried that hasnt helped and what side effects have you had? I hope to gain a list that others can look at to see if they havent tried a med that could help. So I have tried..increasing amitriptiline from 100mg to 150mg per night..it had no effect on my pain. Side effects were urinary retention and feeling more tired. Gabapentin 300mg twice a day worked immediately for me, pain is minimal and have had no side effects Pain killers:voltaren, pain no different side effects : problems with acid reflux. paracetamol and codeine 500mg/30mg, took the edge of of pain, only took when in severe pain. Would love to hear from others and think it would be great to share what meds are working or not working.
