I saw a gp today to say that the co-codamol I was prescribed last week was not touching the pain. My gp said to me 'well theres not a lot left to try now, you are running out of options'. This is the second time a gp has said this to me in the last few weeks!
The medication I have tried so far for pain relief is; ibuprofen/paracetamol, naproxen, diclofenac, amitriptyline (which I still take but for help sleeping), dosupelin (didnt even help with sleep so went back on amitriptyline), co-dradamol and methocarbamol, codiene and theb co-codamol. None of these have been effective in relieving me of pain and the gp has npw prescribed tramadol. Is there really not many options left for me? I thought there are many different meds for pain relief? Am I being fobbed off? Thanks in advance xxxx
