Thought I'd give you an update to my distressing appt with a Locum Dr at my GP's Surgery who refused me my w pain relief that I usually get. As I told you I was an emotional wreck after this.
On Monday morning I rang & lodged a complaint with the Practice Manager who apologised. She told me she would get one of the Senior Partners/Dooctors to phone me back asap. The Doctor rang me back within a half hour and he also apologised. Although he thought the locum was wrong in refusing me my usual pain relief he went on to say that Fibro is a very complex disease & for GP's they can sometimes find it difficult to prescribe the right meds as some meds cause side effects which then bring on more fibro problems. He printed me off a script for my usual Tramadol & Paracetamol. He said it would be easier for them once I get to see a Consultant at the Pain Clinic.
He has now also put a note on my records on computer that when I come to the Surgery I have to see one of the Senior Doctors.
I am happy & feel a big relief at getting my pain relief back. I just wish my appointment for Pain Clinic would hurry & arrive. I was told at the time it could take a lot of time to get appointment as the waiting list is very long.
Thank you to all who replied to me with your messages of support. I really appreciated it.
Luv & gentle hugs
