Nerve pain

HI. I wonder if you can help me. I can hardly walk today, not because of joint pain but from the nerves which seem to be stopping me walking and my leg keeps giving way.

Should I try and walk through it, or rest it? I have a busy day tomorrow and I won't be able to do anything with this problem.

Help please

Thanks. Grandmar

    I also had non-listed side effects when I was on Amitriptyline, at the time I was still working which involved some public speaking, quite frequently I would stop speaking for anything up to 15/20 seconds and then continue the sentence as if there was no break. I didn't notice but, of course, everyone I was speaking to did! I was taken off it straight away and went on Morphine which I have now been on for over 10 years. It is important that any non-listed side effects are reported to the MRHA -
