Well my gp called me and asked me to go in yesterday, he was very apologetic that he hasnt been able to help with my pain, but he had had a brainwave he didnt know why he hadn't thought of it before he has put me on a painkiller called gabapentin he said to do a fast titration starting a 900mg day one and upping by 300mg a day untill i get some relief from my pain up to a maximum of 3600mg a day, seems alot and hope i dont end up on that much he has given me two pause periods where i stay on 1800mg for 3 days the carry on then pause again at 2700mg for 1 week then carry on up to max doses if needed i really hope it works for me i did sleep a little better last night so that is good.
He said i might be on clexane for a little while then change onto a diffrent oral anticoagulant again, i talked to him about st thomas's he said if heamotologist doesnt refere me then he will. !!!!!! Yippee finaly might be getting somewhere xx
