Just wanted to give you an update. I am still living life in pain but I feel I have a better handel on it now. My doctor has me on 50mg of Amitriptyline every night as well I take 600mg of Lyrcia every day, as well as my pain killers as needed. I was never the one to take pills but now I am on them every day for the rest of my life. I have a lot of support from family and friends so I am very lucky. I hope to over time be able to decrese the amount of pills I take in a day. I have been able to keep my head above water, so to speak but it hasn't been easy. If I can do it you all can stay positive as well. So hang in there, the day's will only get better.
