I have MS, and what liitle distance i can still walk, it'st a strange Frankenstein type shuffle, resulting in damage to my spine, and a pelvic tilt. The past six months or so the pain in my right hip has worsened, then becoming intense pain in my right buttock, outside right calf, and right ankle. Physio is convinced I've a trapped nerve, caused by spinal problem (herniated disc he thinks) I now can hardly put any weight on my right side as the pain causes my leg to contract. Results if xrays not with GP yet. He has put me straight away onto 25mg of Amitriptyline at night. Is this a too high starting dose? Feeling like a zombie in the morning, and after seven days no pain relief at all. Co-codamol doesn't work for me, and Tramadol likewise had no effect. I'd really appreciate your thoughts. Many thanks.
