Today is my 5th day in a row of very high pain levels. The pain is dropping down to around 4/10 at best during the day, but is continually spiking up at 8 and 9. Until now, my worst spikes haven't happened until the evening, from about 6:30 when I get home from work, lasting until around midnight.
Last night however my spike carried on until the early hours of the morning and I spent 4 hours crying solidly with pain. I had to yell at my boyfriend to stop him calling an ambulance he was so worried seeing me in such a state.
Today at work I am struggling so much, my pain is at a constant 5 and spiking higher, and i'm considering asking my boss If I can work from home this afternoon.
I don't know what to do. I still have no pain medication strong enough to touch the pain. I don't see the Rhueumatologist until November. All i've got is codeine, which just isn't strong enough. I can't cope, i'm in SO much pain I don't even know how i'm going to manage to drive home. What do I do? I was there last week and the week before - I feel like I can't go to my GP again, i'm there so often i'm sure they'll ban me! I just need some kind of relief from the pain
