Hi Tara,

I am glad you are feeling better taking Paxil. I had to try 4 before I could take one. I was on Elavil, and then Pamelor, then Paxil, which wired my out, could not sleep, and it was making the sleep trouble much worse. I am now on Trazadone, and it is great for sleep, as I have now talked to pain clinic yesterday, I told them about all the pain the past week, and I had to take an enema last night. I was i terrible pain, it has helped alot.

The nurse told me it seems I am at a stand still on the pain meds, it has been a year, that I may benefit with surgery, I did tell her I am scared to death. I see gyn on Monday! Take care!
