Hi, I am due to go on holiday to Dorset with my husband this Saturday, my husband is so looking forward to it and wonders why I'm not excited about it. I worry as the more mobile I get like getting in and out of car and walking further than just around the house and taking a short walk with dog, which the last time I did this within 2 days I was in agony. My Gabapentin are okay but the co-codamol I have been given although helping with the pain if I have to take more than a couple in a day I just cannot function, swimmy head & feeling sick. He keeps asking why I not not excited and I don't like to say anything as he deserves a good holiday and I don't want to spoil it for him. he just will not go off on his own if I say I want a break today so that I could rest up. It's so hard when you look okay to explain what it is like to be in constant pain and too much walking and my feet knees and back get so bad I don't know where to put myself. Can anyone suggest a way I can get him to go off on his own as where he won't do this I feel I have to go with him so he can get out and about and then the vicious circle of really bad pain begins
