On Thursday just gone, I had a phone consultation with a GP (not my usual GP), explained to him that i have Severe OA, & the prescribed meds (Gabapentin) are not kicking in anymore. Explained how i was feeling, losing my balance, continuous pains etc etc. Told me he could prescribe Co-Codamol, I refused because it dosen't agree with. So, precribed me Tramadol 50mg, 1 to 2 tabs, 4 times a day!
Sorry for my language, but, F#####G HELL ....... I'd only taken 4 tablets in the space of 24hrs, I felt so spaced out, then I developed a irritating rash all over me!!
Whoa! I'm not having this. I stopped taking them straight away, Detoxed overnight, & I'm ok this morning, back onto Gabapentin.
This is what I don't like about phone consultation with GP's, they can't see the whites of your eyes, they're just going by you say. Bloody dangerous I think.
Going to have to wait until Tuesday now, before I can speak MY GP...
Anyways, hope your all behaving yourselves.
Happy Easter. Happy Holidays. 🐇🐇 x
