Lots of different sensations - Is this Neuropathy?

The pain is like a red hot poker going straight to the bone! The funny thing is I stood on a hot coal that fell out of the grill (wearing only socks) and never felt a thing and wouldn't have even noticed if my sock hadn't started on fire. I had a huge blister but never felt anything.

Amitriptyline is a fairly heavy duty drug. I am wondering how many times do you experience these unexpected stabbing hot poker pains in a day or week? And does the Amitriptyline keep them from happening? If not, and as disconcerting as the pains are (and I am not minimizing the probably horrible effect on you) I am just wondering if you absolutely need the Amitriptyline, especially if it does not eliminate the episodes for the most part. Is there some way you could manage to just live with these pains, at least until you find a more acceptable solution? It really depends on how often they occur, and how severe an individual episode is when it happens, I guess.

Oh dear, reminds me of when I met my husband and the blood spots on his carpet. He never knew or felt when these injuries happened nor could he see them bc he is color-blind. His skin on the soles of his feet got burned in a tanning bed (he was much younger) and the only way he knew was that he could smell his flesh burning! EEeewwww!

I am truly sorry for your suffering and painful journey. Hang in, we all care about you very much.
