Toni, Thanks for your response. I am on Tylenol with Codeine most days and Vicadin for the bad days. To be honest, neither of them help that much but it's better than the bottle of Aleve I was going through every week or two. I am also having anesthesia and steriods injected into my back (Superior Hypogastric Plexus). Had it done a month ago- didn't help at all. Having it done again on Friday, but don't have high hopes. I think she prescribed the Pamelor (antidepressant) because I am not sleeping well. I have dreams of being in pain! She says it blocks nerve pain and it will help me sleep. She said it makes you very groggy in the morning. Do you find that to be true? God knows I'm groggy enough in the morning! Also blurred vision? I think I am going to start on a low dose and see how it goes... How are you doing? Paula
