Does this medicine …. You are right that now that there is so much brain research we can at least have hope that more research will be done with those of us with fibro, in particular fMRIs to note our brain pathways! Thank God I am not crazy… Fibro itching in my hair and on my legs… with numb thighs that tingle painfully..
Thank you for your compliments!
It worked for a while then my dosage needed to be increased, however I still take it to this day, once before bed every single night.
What is to be done?
I have just gone back on Nortriptyline, after going off it and trying topamax, as i also have a tremour which I thought I could kill two birds with one stone by using topamax.
I am now on 10mg of nortriptyline for the migraines.
I also get a very sharp pain in my lower left rib… The Dr even did a bone scan.
My anxiety is good.
For years I was on Depakote and that held them at bay then about two years ago the headaches returned with a vengeance.
I received this medication years apart and both times within the first month I noticed sexual dysfunction which grew worse.
Nortriptyline has been more or less a miracle drug for me.
Thanks again, Erin.
I hope that others can think of some ways to help with that itch of yours.
Libo-on, Marilu Bavia Dr.
I hope your doctor will read some of the 90 articles posted here or read my book to get a better understanding of this frustrating syndrome!
He told me to expect it will take months to truly feel better.
Doctor has my on hydroxyline and some prescription itching cream.
I agree that Vit B seems to help the nervous system but then so does relaxation and meditation and low impat ,slow exercises.
I suspect I have had it for a long time and it was misdiagnosed.
It is our nervous systems out of control.
I didnt have great results with celexa or cymbalta so I am starting Nortriptyline at bedtime tonight.
If you get an outbreak, you can then have it swab tested to determine if it is herpes.
What a relief.
