I was put on amitriptyline 25mg on 29 November for migraines due to a concussion I started by taking half every night then going up to the full dosage/pill as directed by the doctor.
About a week ago I missed two doses and since then have not missed a dose. About a day after missing the second dose my legs were tingling when I stood up. The next day the tingling turned to numbness, now my whole body is numb. I cannot feel most pain, can't tell if something is too hot or cold (especially eating or drinking), I can't even fee the sensation of urinating (I can feel when I have the urge to urinate).
I'm obviously worried a great deal. I've contacted the doctor who prescribed me the medication and was told to see my primary care doctor - that appointment is in an hour. I've been told by my psychologist that this is because of the medication and missing those two doses. Does anyone have any similar experiences with this medication? I'm obviously hoping this is because my body was somewhat shocked by the sudden stopping of the medication, but I've found nothing that says this is clearly due to amitryptiline.
