tried tramadol that that was rubbish didn't touch the sides on the pain and had horrendous jaw clenching and greatly increased muscle spasms. Now the pain management nurse has "offered" duloxetine instead of fluoxetine I take and codydramol instead of cocodamol that I went back to.
my main problem is the involuntary muscle spasms which are constant and the muscle exhaustion is where the pain comes from so surely muscle relaxants would be better?
After reading the duloxetine reviews they have terrified me about the withdrawal effects. I have gone through withdrawals before which had devastating effects which ended up me in the psych ward on suicide watch so I'm a touch cautious as you can imagine.
im getting so tired of being sick and tired and trying different medications which make you feel like you're having your head pulled off your shoulders.
any ideas folks? As it is obvious people on here know far more than the doctors seem to. I have an appointment probably in about a year with a consultant. Feeling pretty fed up with al of this nonsense.
any help greatly appreciated
thanks in advance xx
