Appreciate the replies, thank you.
It seems that all of the pain meds mentioned are sedating too. I agree AllyB - it is worse to lose sleep. I think for 10 years I slept dreadfully - I remember staggering into work after 3 hours broken sleep on a regular basis. I wish I'd copped myself on and asked for neurological pain meds before I got that bad.
At least I'm treating the pain now. I think amytrip is really the best one for me at the moment because I am able to function.
I was just hoping a vain hope that there was another (magical!) pain reliving drug out there I hadn't heard of that wouldn't sedate me. I'm seeing my neuro in a couple of weeks and will chat with him then, but by the sound of your replies I think the balance I have now is as good as it gets.
Thanks again for replying.
