I feel like i have been through the wringer! i have been in so much pain in my chest caused by chostochondritis (due to fibro) and my dr kept saying "let's try this" and never really hitting on a good solution. Finally put me on Amitriptyline but it totally wiped me out so we decreased the dose. Two days later out of the blue (on a day i was finally noticing a decrease in pain) i started to shake and my heart rate soared to 140. I went to urgent care and it was determined this was a reaction to the Amitriptyline! Has anyone else ever had this type of reaction? It took 2 days before i was feeling better. I'm happy to report that i have since been started on pred. because the chest pain was determined to be caused by my connective tissue disease instead of the fibro. and i have not had chest pain for 3 days! I'd be interested to hear from anyone else who has had this type of reaction!
