i have come back from the doctors "livid" for quite some time i have been telling my G P about the pain in my nexk and shoulder the x ray proved deterioration in the discs.
ki have been back to see him today as he told me to make an appointment ref my current medications. i explained to him the shouler is very painful and i am awake every hour with it.
he said he could do nothing else as i am on the highest levels of medication for my O/A and he said the chances the fibro is what the pain is. i told him i had been to the assesment with physio and then could not go back on the second appointment as my neck was too painful he said i must just fight through it as physio is very important - i have also been referred to phycology and my 1st appt is in 6 weeks so i said - "my pain is real and it is now and not in 6 weeks i need help" i was fuming. i am also on an 8 week fibro course at the hospital he just annoyed me so much trying to make out the pain was in my head - IT IS HERE AND NOW IN MY SHOULDER. i wak up in a morning as though i have done 10 rounds, this week i have appointments on 4 days - i am shattered, i want someone to back me up and not make me feel bad. i am currently on 80 mg of morphine a day 2700mg of gabapentin 200mg of tramadol and he has just upped my amitryptoline to 2 tablets at night and i have to take between 4 and 8 paracetamo; a day along with citalopram - GRUMPY TONIGHT
