  • I'm sorry, I haven't experienced what you described but it sounds really painful, try and call NHS direct or out of hours doctors in your area, maybe they can send a doctor or nurse to your home to at least apply some lidocaine patches for your pain. You poor thing!

  • it is awful I hate being like this but I hav since my specialists n they sed I hav to wait til mri scan so they know wat they treating just hope sumthing does come up so they can sort it out n I hav since doctors they give me the pain relief but it don't work no pain relief works they maxi it to wat they can give me now so I just in agony n very lil sleep n got two kids to look after its gd job my husband is fantastic n looks after us all

  • I understand about the painkillers but you could ask for an injectable form that has an immediate effect. When are you seeing your doctor again? I get that you're waiting for the MRI but meanwhile your GP needs to do something about your pain, you can't stay like this!

  • I end back up in hospital wiv flare up n watering infection n this attack down one side went a lot worse so they now trying me on morphine n more tablets n ringing up Monday to find out more about mri scan n it took air n gas n morphine together to get me down traveling to hospital it was tht bad I still was screaming wiv pain n how I am feeling now I am acheing from head n toe everything feels bruised n just pain coming from everywhere n struggling to walk even more n my back keep shooting pains all time I just cant sleep but at least I hav comfy couch to sit up n sleep on

  • Blimey, that sounds rough, where is the pain coming from, the water infection? Have you tried hot water bottle on that area of pain?

  • i found out today after having all them symptoms tht i am lacking in vitamin b12 n tht cud b causing me all these problems but got to wait for results from specialist about mri scan tht i had done to make sure its not nothing else n tht they pick everything up but i do need now 6 injections then i am on injection every three months n they need to test me for pernicious anaemia to see if it tht too
