Hi. I’m asking for desperate help here. I started amitriptyline, for back pain, in November last year. By mid January I went up to 50mg and was in a massive mess. I was shaking all over, my body inside was vibrating, serve back pain, crawling sensation all over, couldn’t sleep at all, lying down was worst as my whole body would jerk and muscle twitches in all over. I wish I died coz it was the most horrible week of my life.
After the week I lowed the doss and it wasn’t as bad but the muscle twitches and crawling sensation stayed. I told my doctor who said it wasn’t the medication. 3 weeks on it was constant. Still tell my doctor who said it was anxiety. Up the doss and end of February and was I a massive state again and very suicidal. So I completely stopped it. It seemed to ease of but muscle twitches and suicidal thoughts come back. Went on diazepam and was completely anxious and still very suicidal and muscles twitches. Went A&E twice, which I should of done the it went bad, and they didn’t care. I really don’t know what to do any more. I stopped diazepam and my muscle ms twitches got worse, crawling sensation in my legs come back and still can not sleep. I feeling better in my head but I just want all these muscle twitches, crawling sensation and week legs to stop. I can’t live like this and nobody wants to help or listen. I get told it anxiety and I don’t feel like that. I feel this will never stop and all I wish I never started amitriptyline and just want my life back. I feel there is not end to all my physical symptoms. Can anybody help please. Please
Thank you. Kind regards
