Well, here I am again. I was sent home sick from work yesterday lunchtime. I got in and slept for over an hour. I woke up still in so much pain.
I had a similar experience two weeks ago. I pitched up at my doc, the receptionist could see I was in agony and got me right in to see the doc. I have to say she is brilliant and so sympathetic. I was crying because of the pain and she was very patient while I pulled myself together. We talked about my options and tweaked my medication. She suggested I take one Tramadol in the morning before I go to work and increase the Amitryptyline at night so I sleep better. Well I did take the Tramadol and it was a huge mistake. I tripped out at work and got sent home. I slept it off and decided not to take the Tramadol before work again!
Now the pains have got worse again, I have started to keep a pain diary to see if there is a pattern or trigger. I am 12 days in and so far there is nothing. I have noted the weather, what I did and whether it was a work day or not. My hubby read it and he is understanding a bit more.
I want to explore aternative treatments as I am so fed up of popping pills. I can fight this or give in and I am not prepared to give in. If anyone has any suggestions/experiencecof alternative treatments I would love to hear them. I'd also like to know how effective they were.
sorry to go on, gentle hugs to all.
