hope you’re all enjoying the closing ceremony.
I’m seeing my GP tomorrow and he’s going to decide whether to start me on amitriptyline or not and also to refer me to the hospital (I’m going to push for this anyway as really fed up now). I was wondering if anyone else has had this medication and does it work, side effects etc.
I’ve been off work for 10 days as was an emotional wreck last time I saw him. I do feel a little better but not sure if I’m ready for work or not - my legs are still really painful and I am sooooooooooooo tired even with just a small amount of exertion. I work as a palliative care nurse (long shifts), so it’s quite busy and I’ve found recently that the more ‘brain work’ that I do, the more spaced and light-headed I feel. Problem with the NHS is that 3 sickness episodes and your days may be numbered so I don’t want to go back before I know I can cope but I feel ‘ok’ some days - dilemma so any advice most welcome
I know that I may not even have MS, but I’m taking some comfort in the support from just reading everyones posts etc so I hope you don’t mind me asking a few questions too.
Many thanks - Alison
