Hi I've just been diagnosed by an Orthopaedic Doc whom I have seen for 2nd time. He said he would write & inform my GP, also refer me to pain clinic as I need a cortizone injection in my right hip. I'm just carrying on takin'&2g my normal medication but feel its not giving me much relief. How long does it usually take to get the appointment for pain clinic. Ortho Doc told me they would discuss pain relief with me there. Should I go back to my own GP in the meantime as I am in agony?
