I have been taking Amitriptyline for back pain for about a week, and from the first day and every day since, I’ve been getting a strange sensation in my lower abdomen and down my arms.
The best way I can describe it is that I feel itchy on the inside. Its as if I’m hyper-aware of the nerves in my body.
It’s particularly bad at night, and I’ve struggled to get to sleep and have woken up during the night (I am usually a pretty good sleeper).
I really don’t know if this is a side effect of the medication, or if the timing is a coincidence, so I’m wondering if anybody else has experienced it?
The reason I’m not jumping to the conclusion that the drug is causing it is that I have taken Amitriptyline previously for a month, and had no issues. I also have a pretty high tolerance in general for medications, and rarely experience noticeable side-effects, especially on small doses.
My next doctors apt is in 3 weeks, so, in the mean time, I would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks.
