I have a pain management appointment tomorrow and I would like to ask for painkillers. Currently I take ibuprofen or naproxen and paracetamol when my pain is very bad but I honestly don't feel it makes a difference. Months ago when I had one of these appointments the doctor gave me Gabapentin which I found made me feel loopy, I had no short term memory plus felt dizzy and kept forgetting words! I can't take codeine as it also makes me feel terrible, I get heart palpitations when I take it and feel like I'm going to have a panic attack.
I have read on here that a lot of people take Tramadol - I don't know much about this medication but does anyone find it helpful? I know everyone is different and reacts differently but I would love to find something that helps on a really bad day
