I recently tried amitriptyline in a lose dose but the side effects made me tired and irritable. So after a couple of days i went off it. Wondered if any of the peas had any suggestions to combat the pain?

You need to see a doctor that specializes in pain control.

Have you tried gabapentin? I took it for neuropathy and didn't really notice any side effects.

I've have it for almost 10 years (I'm also type 1 diabetic) I feel like I've tried everything including soap in between my mattresses.

The latest prescription I tried was Cymbalta.

Acupuncture and Gapabentin have been working for me.

I take Lyrica. It's not cheap but you may qualify for coverage through the company. Seeing a neurologist is best though. See what GP and get on the cancellation list for the neurologist.

Good luck@

ALL of the medication that I tried made me have terrible side effects. I ended up having to have Botox injections in my affected nerve to kill the pain.
