Hi Anne. Thank you for sharing your experiences - I'm glad you've found something that works for you.

I've finally made an appointment to see a doctor about this (due to insurance weirdness, I don't actually have an internist in the city I live in). I asked my psychiatrist about the alleged MAOI-barbiturate interaction and he said that there is just a possibility (unconfirmed) that the MAOI could potentiate the barb's effects (so you use a smaller dose). So that, or another sort of muscle relaxant, may be the ticket, since it's worked before (Valium, however, didn't help much; neither do Klonopin and Xanax).

Having consulted the web and a neuro textbook, I don't think that what I have is dystonia, though I will find out more tomorrow. Essential tremor is pretty common - my dad has it too.

I know what you mean about depression being even more debilitating. I wonder if the reason my pain seems to be bothering me more might be because I'm not depressed (Parnate seems to be working - yay).
