Hi mellybob. Thanks for responding, did this numbness that you had persist or eventually go? And did it affect your ears at all?
I am not usually an anxious person but I have found this whole process of keep trying medications and then having to stop because of ear problems very stressful, so at this moment, probably! I had a quite a meltdown at the drs yesterday.
I do know that 1ml of Amitriptyline is not going to fix my dizziness, but I am now very cautious about what to do. I will not get another neurology appointment for about 4 months.My GP is just trying to help, but the problem is me, not him or the neurologist. They are willing to prescribe these things, i just have trouble when I take them.
I now have packs of Propranolol, Topiramate, Venlafaxine, a 2 month course of Zonesamide and Amitriptyline in my bedroom hardly touched!
I have read about this 'start low. go slow' approach to medication in people who have been sensitive in the past. And I was wondering about trying that. However after 1ml of Amitriptyline I am feeling dizzy again so this isn't good. I have to get back to work next week.
