I am currently in a bad way and wondered if anyone else had experienced the same or similar problems.
Since November I have been suffering from continuous UTI's which have escalated to my kidneys. I have been to my doctors 3 times regarding pain in my kidney's but feel that I am not being heard. Twice I have been sent away with antibiotics which have given me terrible nausea and my kidneys have not been examined despite the pain not improving.
I have had terrible pain and swelling in my knee and elbows due to damage in the joints for which I was prescribed naproxen. I ended up getting rushed into a&e on Tuesday as the naproxen has stripped my stomach and I was delirious with pain. (no exaggeration, I could barely talk it was so intense) I spent the day on morphine and meds to help soothe my stomach. I was sent away with some omeprazole and more antibiotics as my infection has not subsided.
I am now in agony with my left kidney and have been up all night with the pain. I have taken co-dydramol but it only lasts 2 hours and I have to suffer for another 2 before I can take more. I was also told at the hospital that my liver is inflamed which the receptionist at my GP mentioned during my last visit but the doctor completely ignored during my appointment. I have to go back to my GP today to get them to send me for a scan of my kidneys having been on the phone to SELDOC through the night.
I feel like I am imploding. I can't deal with the pain anymore. I am supposed to go back to work on Monday haven been signed off because my knee was so bad but I don't know how I am going to cope. Has anyone experienced anything similar??
Any advice would be great.
