OK: questions. What dose of Propranolol are you on, and for roughly how long? I ask because I’ve taken it three years now. I was 24/7 dizzy and having acute (bedridden 8 days at a time) attacks regularly and sometimes nearly back to back for weeks on end. Eventually it stopped the 24/7 dizziness and I went three years and three months without an attack.
Can understand the drugs choice of gabapentin and effexor due to comorbid conditions. My Doctor put me on the Propranolol for same reason but different comorbid condition. Ami is also well established for treating long-term pain, did you know. Ami is much more highly antichlolinergic than Nori, that’s the difference.
With your experience with gabapentin it could be the pain felt worse because you hadn’t had it a few days and your brain had forgotten what it felt like. That happens with symptoms waxing and waning. I doubt it would sensitize your system after all it’s used to treat MAV quite often I understand.
I really think you need that career break to conduct meds trials.
My doctor told me to take Ami exactly 12 hours before I neeeded to be up from bed next day because it makes you drowsy. Helen
