Hello I am new to health-unlocked. I am wondering if anyone else is in a similar position to myself?
I have had joint and muscle pain for many years eventually controlled by nsaid's for 15yrs. This enabled me to continue my working life. I was taken off them 5years ago due to the increased risks of heart problems, which run In my family. I have recently requested to be prescribed pain control again as my condition has worsened enough to affect daily living activities in retirement . Following discussion with my GP I have decided that the risks outweigh the joy of being pain free.
I would be interested to hear from anyone else who is affected in a similar way and how it is tolerated.
