Last night I woke up in the early hours in agony, cramping in my left ankle, and today all down my left side spasms and shooting pain from left side of my back, every time I move my left leg i cant help shouting out. Background info. couple of weeks ago caught a cold which set off asthma, treated with usual inhalers. I have lung condition and on 24 hours oxygen hence keeping an eye on peak flow, which has been falling all week. GP put me back on oral steroids for 5 days. Then this. I'm allergic aspirin/ibuprofen type pain relief, which doesn't leave me many options, and when my lungs are struggling it's important to drop or at least reduce meds like codeine, oramorph and matrifen patches, and this leaves me with amitriptyline and duloxetine, which is pretty tough going generally, and just when I was starting to congratulate myself at how well I was doing too!
Any ideas/suggestions much appreciated! Tulip xx
