Amitriptyline Gait Disturbance Causes and Reviews


Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a nervous system disease that affects your brain and spinal cord. It damages the myelin sheath, the material that surrounds and protects your nerve cells. This damage slows down or blocks messages between your brain and your body, leading to the symptoms of MS. They can include

  • Visual disturbances
  • Muscle weakness
  • Trouble with coordination and balance
  • Sensations such as numbness, prickling, or "pins and needles"
  • Thinking and memory problems

No one knows what causes MS. It may be an autoimmune disease, which happens when your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake. Multiple sclerosis affects women more than men. It often begins between the ages of 20 and 40. Usually, the disease is mild, but some people lose the ability to write, speak, or walk.

There is no single test for MS. Doctors use a medical history, physical exam, neurological exam, MRI, and other tests to diagnose it. There is no cure for MS, but medicines may slow it down and help control symptoms. Physical and occupational therapy may also help.

Amitriptyline Gait Disturbance Reviews

can Amitriptyline can cause thrombocytopenia ?

Wed, 16 Nov 2011

After having been on elavil for 9 years, mostly at 100mg/night, I spent the last 6 months weaning off. Shortly after stopping Amitriptyline I now have high blood pressure. Before stopping, and for years before starting, my usual pressure was 115/65, now have 150/68. Can this be a withdrawal symptom or has the drug been masking a heart problem all this time or did it cause damage that did not show up before stopping the drug?
