I have been having the most painful flare for the last 3 weeks. I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice on how to make a flare up go away quicker? I have been off sick from my nursing placement for nearly 3 weeks now and am desperate to get back but am in so much pain and am so exhausted I can hardly get out of bed. I've seen my GP twice in the last 2 weeks the first time she said to increase amitriptyline to 75mg a night and asked if I had heard from the pain clinic again. I had heard from them - they want me to do a 12 week pain management course once a week for 12 weeks. The second time I saw GP she just did some blood tests and said she wanted to sign me off for longer. I asked her to just do it for 1 week cos really thought I would be ready to go back by now.
I don't know what to do - help!!
