This morning i rung my GP to have a chat to him about headaches that are getting more frequent to say the least i got absolutely no where talking to him! I was not impressed! He said it would be painkiller over use as i was on tramodol and parceptmol four times a day. This was the first i had heard of this - i am not on either four times a day. As to the fact they are on my repeat i would like to know since when?! I know i had them both when i was in hospital but i have not taken tramadol since i was discharged and i rarely use any other painkillers unless i really have to! So pain killer induced headaches hardly likely?! I was really not pleased with him at all. He has sent me some codeine 15mg that is seperate from parceptomol to try. I was fuming so much i rang my resp nurse to see if she had any brighter ideas poor women not her area of expertee at all! She said to keep a diary of when i get the headaches, for how long and if i find a way of getting rid of them. When she next comes she will take it and show a doctor and also do my blood pressure as she wonders if it is low but not to worry until i next see her, just to ring her if anything gets worse. I found her so much more understanding and helpful.
Hospital discharge team are really annoying me too they keep asking me when the next team will take over - isnt the answer obvious when they are told they no longer need to come?! I dont know if i did know i would have told them. Social services are busy people it isnt my fault they are not getting back to me, my social worker is on holiday so i dont expect anything to happen till he comes back and even then i shall be asking him if he had a good holiday to start with but that is me! As soon as they have sorted something i am sure they will tell me!
To top it all i am really not feeling great today, i feel really spaced out and that is before i have even tried the new tablets doctor has sent me. i rang doctor with headache concern and feeling spaced out and get no where so i am left at home not feeling great, infact i feel very stressed and emotional so all in all a wonderful day NOT!
I am trying to plan my life so that i get back on my feet soon but not too quickly but it is really hard when people keep saying shouldnt you be doing this already or the opposite they say slow down! Grr i am doing what i can when i can and i would be doing it sooner if i could and no i not going to slow down because if i do i will grind to a halt!
(if you read this far thanx - dont say i didnt warn you it was a rant!)
