I went to see my GP this morning about my pain and headaches, and she has prescribed me tramadol.
She has signed me off work for a week, as I havent taken tramadol before and she thinks ill need time off for my body to adjust to taking it.
I spoke to HR at work and they’ve said if I want to come back to work early then I’ll need to go back to the dr to get a form saying I’m fit to comeback to work.
Has anyone else been signed off work? I work at a behavioural school so the kids are very challenging. The pain is on and off but this week I’ve had a lot.
Apparently I’m not to drive on tramadol either.
I guess I’m more worried as I won’t be paid!! And statutory pay is so rubbish isn’t it. I’m wondering if I should go to dr on Monday and get a note saying I can work, as there’s half term in a week, and start taking the tablets then?? Ahh I don’t know!! She also said she thinks I ‘need’ the week off too...
