Hello, after many months of tests etc my clinic physician now thinks I am suffering from IBS, slightly atypical in that the main symptom is pain. I was on codeine which helped, but he thinks this was making the pain worse in the long term. He recommended paracetamol for pain relief, but it's not very effective. I've also just started amitryptiline which has knocked me out and today I have the triple whammy of severe pain, severe fatigue and dopiness. I am struggling. Does anyone have experience of an effective form of pain relief I can use to cope--I cannot do hot water bottles and deep breathing in work meetings!
