I filed an amended return the same day that I efiled my original return. There is a difference between the 2 amounts. Should I pay the FULL original amount owed?

and then just wait for a refund of the difference?  Or should I pay the lower amended amount when I send in the Amended return?

Yes, you will first want to resolve the original return by paying the entire amount. If you are due a refund after amending, then you will receive a check from the IRS.

To print your amended return, follow the steps below.

When you mail Form 1040-X you should include the following forms:

  • The new (amended) Form 1040
  • Any forms or schedules that were added or changed as a result of preparing the amendment

It takes the IRS up to 16 weeks to process amended returns.  Also, depending on whether the changes affect your numbers, you may also be required to file an amended return with your state.  

The mailing address for your state and situation can be found at https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1040x.pdf.  Look under Where to File on page 14.

You should not amend until they finish processing the first original return and you get the first refund.  Or you still need to pay the original tax due.

Then the Amended return will only be for the difference you get back or owe.  You have to wait because the IRS might adjust the original return for you.
