good luck with your GP sounds like the morphine patch was too strong. It's really hard to get the balance right isn't it?


Omg poor you. On top of contenting with this wretched illness and its many weird and wonderful symptoms, many of us have had horrible experiences with medications meant to ease our pain and treat our fibro. I agree with cobweb it sounds like your dose of morphine was too high/strong resulting in an adverse reaction. Hopefully some minor adjustments and fine tuning by your GP will sort this out and you will receive the appropriate amount of pain relief to make life a wee bit more bearable :-)
