    Amitriptyline for Pain (acute)

    I have been taking amitriptyline for 14 months as I have suffered from extreme insomnia but have been struggling with tinnitus and migraine all the time. Furthermore, I had unexplained hip pain, even the orthopedic surgeons could find nothing on the MRI. The effect of 25 mg amitriptyline began immediately. I have been able to sleep very well since I took it and have no more hip pain. Tinnitus and migraine (with aura) have not changed positively, but are present in the same intensity. Side effects were early morning urination. Since then, I take 10mg and 25 mg amitriptyline in daily change and the problems occur only in a weakened form. By taking amitriptyline regularly, I can live a normal life again.

A diagnosis of this pain was made only reluctantly by the attending physicians. X-ray thorax and ECG were without findings, which is why I was told that this pain probably part of my chron. Pain syndrome or my thoughts would be responsible. However, it was not taken into account that the pain was only 3 weeks earlier and still considered to be acute. Also, information, such as the chance diagnosis of a female doctor who raised a status for the pensioner and, through a pressure test, the diaphragm as responsible for the pain in the thorax, as well as the information of my physiotherapist, that a strong hardening / Distortion is ignored. It was also explained to me that I had been treated with the existing medication (Lyrika 150mg 1-0-1 and Palexia 200mg 1-0-1) and that you could not give any more painkillers. (However, this can not be correct because I took Palexia solution up to 2x5ml as a bolus for pain attacks just a few months earlier.) This was discontinued only on my initiative, because I saw myself impaired in my cognitive abilities) Nevertheless, one sat down Amitriptyline 25mg 1-0-1 as a painkiller. A strange comment from a nurse and her own research brought two things to light. First: Amitriptyline is not a painkiller, but antidepressants and second: The doctor has lied to me cheekily. From the beginning he was full of prejudices about the pain I felt and made my psyche responsible. He even went so far as to say that he was sorry for my family doctor because he needed to keep treating me. But only half a year before had a psychological report, which I needed for my gastric bypass, my psyche certified perfect health, and although I have been so for 3.5 years with the pain of the deg. Had to fight WS syndrome! The first (side) effect: I was tired! I could have fallen asleep standing around the clock! I mean, I could have been happy, before that night I only got 2-4 hours of sleep a night because of the pain, now I could sleep much longer. However, I had to pay for this sleep a much too high price, because the pain after getting up were thus many times worse, because just lying, prepares me, over time, the greatest pain. But I was there because of the acute pain in the chest (and the stomach problem) and not because of the deg. WS syndrome! In the hope that my pain would be reduced, I took the drug, despite my dislike of psychotropic drugs and my belief that this pain had nothing to do with WS syndrome. The second incidental side effect – dry mouth – is very uncomfortable, but not really a problem. but rather a now constant and faithful companion who always teaches you to have a bottle of water with you. The pain-relieving effect was still missing. Since I also knew after my research that the onset of good 2 weeks after the start of treatment can only occur because the drug needs a mirror, I had egg
