I have nothing that has come through yet?

Is the pain like tingling sensation/ burning or sharp shooting?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
not so much sharp shooting only now and then in the temples!

Sounds like neuralgic pain. You can increase the dose of amitryptyline to double or you can ask your GP for some Gabapentin which will help
