My gp and physio have been treating me for a trapped nerve in my neck but I have never been convinced that this is the problem. I have been prescribed gabapentin, naproxen and dyhydracodiene m/r and also sertraline for mild depression previous to this episode starting.... previously have had amitriptylene and co-codamol. I was given a tens machine to use by the pain clinic I attended, but found this to be of no help. I have been so low and cry with the pain regularly now. Do I do to my gp and say look this is what I think is wrong or just keep going back and hope that she will eventually diagnose this herself? I don't usually do self diagnosis but I am in so much pain now I just want to know what is causing it and try to get the right treatment. Thank you for reading x
