t know if mine would be atypical because the pain
gets worse with time. I have found some relief
with 800 mg of ibuprofen, albeit temporary. I take 12-16 per day, 4 with each attack. I also take 100 mg of nortriptyline, with no decrease of pain symptoms, however my mood has improved as how to deal with the pain. I've tried several different pain meds, however they do nothing. Narcotics are not effective at all.
