I imagine many of you have similar problems but why are doctors so bad at discussing/helping with pain management?
I am currently waiting for more surgery for my endo, which is thankfully at the start of May.
I have been to my doctors several times and spoke to my surgeons regarding the pain as I have been waiting a while for the date.
The only thing they have been able to prescribed me is 60mg of codeine and 1000 mg of paracetamol (or tramadol). This makes me dizzy, sleepy and unable to concentrate. As I have to work and look after a very cute but active 2 year old, this means I am unable to take it most of the time.
I am usually in chronic pain which has worsened progressively since I have had my son. It is currently swinging between very noticeable to unbearable at the moment. This makes me snappy/grumpy which is definitely not the person I am.
I have a tens machine and a heat pad.
I was thinking about trying alternative therapies like acupuncture, reiki....anything. Does anyone have any recommendations/opinions?
