  • I tried everything and nothing helped until I went on dihydracodine which has been working most times :) however, I do now find I'm very constipated so maybe get some movicol or similar to help with that xx

  • Thanks for that I'll ask about it on Monday. Really don't like taking painkillers first time in ife iv resulted to them iv cut dairy out too which I have found has helped but pain is still intense more often than not. Xx

  • I have had the Butrans patch slow release pain killing relief. It was good for me but unfortunately I became allergic to the adhesive. Now I'm on the lowest dose Fentynal patch and that is also giving relief. You could mention the patches to your doctor and see how you go from there.

    Good luck

  • Thanks very much for that Jen. Really appreciate it my back is absolutely horrific these days. She gave me ibuprofen 600mg and amitrypline week before last but I'll mention these patches I'm sick of taking tablets and the ibuprofen are too big. If a painkiller doesn't help I tend to just stop taking them.

    Thanks again xx

  • Hello missworried I hate taking tablets too. At times when I get breakthrough pain I take Ibuprofen 400 not on a regular basis also Cocodamol for the same reason. My use of tablets has been cut dramatically.

    I feel for you I suffer the same chronic pain it's awful when it's relentless. I hope you get the right relief soon. If doc doesn't agree ask to see pain management mine have been very helpful.

  • Thanks Jen.

    My pain is really odd it's just come on since may. It's been going down hill since then. It's worse in the cold my legs and hands seem to swell and fingers lock. I feel double my age. Aswel as my gynae and urology problems I don't know what to do sometimes. I'm only 31 and life just seems such a mission. If I do something normal like go shopping I'm in agony for days later and I have to prepare myself for the event physically and emotionally it's an absolute mission. I feel like such a whinger. It's real tough. Iv got docs on Monday AGAIN. Sorry for the moan. Thanks again xx
