Hello all I'm new here and desperate at the moment. I need help for the pain I'm in but the docs seem to think alls ok. I work but because I'm stubborn I pretend that alls ok to the outside world. But its not any more, sorry to be a downer, I'm not sleeping, loosing weight because its too much to eat, pain so bad that I can't stay still or move about if you know what I mean. I'm on gabapentin, tramadol, paracetamol, naprosan, and amatriptyline plus every 6 wks I have an infusion. I'm telling the docs that I need to change the meds as they don't help any more but its like "just go away take your meds and shut up"
How have others get the help they need to lessen your pain, the other day I was "meds don't work for 'people like you', go home and have a hot bath" I walked out of there in tears of anger, frustration and pain.
