Hi there, firstly to keep to the rules, I am not looking for dosages etc, but I have an appointment at the doctors on Tuesday and I'm quite embarrassed.
I have been on MST 30mg twice a day and take approx 3 x 5ml of Oramorph a day, this has been upped from 6 weeks ago when I took just 10mg of MST ( plus full dose of Cocodamol), the thing is I am now taking a lot more "painkiller", but I have seen no relief in pain (in fact I think I am worse at times). I think I was just the same before when I was taking Cocodamol full dose, topping it up with tramadol.
Does morphine work for everyone?, is it good for all types of pain? I am just embarrassed about continually going back to the doctor saying things are not working (although I am waiting for my pain clinic appointment). I just thought that morphine was the gold standard of painkillers but it just does not seem to cut it, ebpven when I take the Oramorph, I don't even notice any difference.
I just don't understand it.
