      You would probably be better having amitriptyline to take at night. It is a muscle relaxant. Omeprazole is taken to protect the stomach from being harmed while taking strong medication

      I missed one of my meds off earlier. I have Naptoxen, one in a morning and one st night. Gsbapentin 3 times a day, two at a time, snd Solpadol, 2 tsken 4 times a day. I then have amitriptyline 1 taken at night. I find this combination works okay with me. I still have pain, but I can cope with it better.

    Hello Karen,

                         pain is just a way of life with me now,it gets really aggravating when I am doing something which requires phisical effort,I feel as though I am getting old before my time.

      I get comfort that there are people hell of a lot worse than me.

    Hi karen

    I have had constant pain for 50yrs (60)now. No matter how long you have had pain I dont think you ever get used to it you can learn to live with it. At first you cant because you find it hard as you try to still do the things you used to do before you had pain whether the pain be slight or harsh. So what you have to learn to do is little and often and if you have to do something take pain killers before you start.I  always think the same as Benggo there is always someone worse off than me.( it does not feel like it sometimes) but there is and I am lucky I have 3children and a hubby who is always there to help if I am not well.What medication are you taking (if any)?

    you take care and hope to read your next postrolleyes
