No!! Just withdrawing from it down from 300mg by 25mg a week, tried to do it more quickly but sent me into a massive pain flare.

i suffered from the danger amount of headaches, put in over a stone and nearly lost my job through being completely out of it, it was awful.

Other than the amitriptyline have you ever found out any physical cause?

i am on a pain management program due to chronic migraine and fibro all caused by EDS, the mindfulness has really helped, have you ever given it a go? Also are you near the menopause at all, I’m in peri and that really kicked things off for me too
