Has anyone had a very noticable change in location of pain or numbness with new meds?
I have had recurring and increasing pain along c6-7, had a fusion there in 2010 and the pain started back last Sept and has progressively gotten worse, to include elbow pain and cramps in my hand, and pain in my medial part of my ring finger.
I was given a new med that is suppose to help with depression and nerve pain, now when I am awake I have a very noticable numbness in my whole ring finger and pinky, and along the thumb side of my forearm. The hand cramps actually feel better. I not sure any of these things were suppose to happen, but my body does not seem to want to follow physiologic rules.
The med amitriptylene has made me very tired, that I was warned about. I will discuss it with my MD next week, I just wonder if anyone has crazy symptoms happening them also.
