Put a post up last week after my fall. I was in some pain in my knee after my fall I had to use my dads shower as I couldn't use my bath. So I had a bit of a problem with my knee it's still healing but still sore.
Only problem I have now is my shoulder it's so painful I could actually cry.. I got that new medication today bringing with 'G' 300mg so far tonight I have taken 2 of them plus 2 dihydrocodeine at 30mg each and 30mg of Amitriptyline and in still in pain.
I went to my GP about a social group my friend is doing as my hear is getting worse and find I'm not socialising very much, but I need to b referred by my GP. He said he couldn't help me and have me a leaflet.
So while I was there I mentioned to him that I had a fall and hurt myself that my knee is sore but my shoulder is a lot worse. He looked at my knee felt my shoulder and said just take pain killers.. I honestly feel like crying because that's all I have done is pop pills.. And seemed to dismiss it.
I asked him if he could look into sending me to rehumtology and he said he sent me to rehumtology I was like I having seen since I was diagnosed with fibro! He said you went to pain clinic that's rehumtology I was like no it's not! I said he can't help me for a wheelchair assessment, all I got off my GP was no you don't need one, your fine.. I thought you cheeky little mite. You have know idea the pain I go through when walking and now iv started falling over.. Then the backlash I get when the chronic pain kicks in..
So I'm thinking about leaving my GP! Also cause its so far to travel when I'm in pain and I have 2 GP's right next to my first 1 I left to go to the currently I'm at then another one.
Can you go back to your previous GP or not?
Please help xx
