My wife has BMS. What helps the pain the most?
Hi. I also have had BMS for a number of years, it came out of the blue and really it is an unknown syndrome. I am under Eastmans and Queens Sq Hosp in London and the only medication that helps me is Amitriptyline. I sometimes think it may have gone and have twice stopped the medication, then after a few days I know for sure it is still there. The burning and all the symptons are rather aggressive. There is no answer from anyone at present but it exists and it can be very painful. Try Amitriptyline, I take five x10mg a day, two when I wake up then two afternoon and one before I go to bed, the only downside is that they can make your mouth very dry at times. You can spread the dosage for your own requirements. It does help to calm the BMS down. No one can say what causes it or if and when it will disappear. It can make you feel rather antisocial at times. Good luck and try the amitriptyline. Regards June
