I wonder if you could help me please. Last night I had really bad nerve pain around my ribs (the hug) I have muscle spasms often around the ribs but have only had this pain twice before around 2 years ago. I already take 40ml of Amiltriptyline for back pain but have tried to refrain from asking for Lyrica as my nerve pain is usually mild (legs and feet) and goes off when I lie down.
I contemplated calling an ambulance, the pain was so bad and this is the second time it’s happened recently. The last time I was able to lie down and sleep through it but last night it was so bad I cried (which probably made it worse). I suppose I would never get it again
Thank you for any advice you could give me.
