Teddytops; Fibromyalgia is a tough one for many people and doctors to deal with to control the pain but yes Amitriptyline has proven to be effective for many people. All you can really do is try it. They really don't know why but years ago it started with diabetics that were having of phantom pain mostly in the legs and a long study they did with this medication that has been around as long as I can remember for whatever reason it did a fantastic job with all of these people for pain and has been used for much other reason's also fibromyalgia they have had very good success with it to.Another one more known for your condition if you have not tried it is Gabapentin that would be another choice that works really well for people with fibromyalgia so keep it in mind also. Just in case you need to try something else. Hope that helps but Amitriptyline is a very good start. Have a good weekend and I hope you get some relief.
