Hi everyone, I have my own pain probs. but write this on behalf of my husband, he has had a tear in his shoulder tendon for nearly 2 years, he is taking naproxen 250mg twice a day and co-codamol 30/500 which he can only take when not working, as his job on the railway is safety critical and can't take these meds whilst working, even though they don't help with the pain. He is on the waiting list for an op., but the waiting list is approx. 8/10 months.
I have made an appointment for him to see our GP, (who he does not have much faith in), in the hope that he can give him an injection, he is now suffering with the right shoulder too and his neck. He is not one to go to the doctor or take time off work, but this is now getting him down as there is no let up with his pain.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as to what we can do.
