Hi I was wondering if someone could give me advice on where I can turn to. My gp fobs me off with tablets. He won't refer ne to get another mri scan done my last one was done in 2010. I had bulging discs on L3 L4 L5 I have siatica nerve damage and from I was born my right leg has been shorter than.left which means I limp and all my right side is where I'm have probs with. I am.currently taking alot of tablets which at 36 is wild. I can't do things with kids. Can't stand any longer than 10mins then the pain in my lower back and into my right hip is so sore. My daily tablets are palexia 200mg 1 tab 2 day, Co codamol 30/500 2tbas.4td, amitriptyline 50mg 1 2td, baclofen 20mg 1 tab 2d, tramadol 50mg sr 1 tab 2d. I think.I'm beginning to rattle. Even taking all these I'm still in pain. I have asked doctor to change my palexia tablet as I have been on it for over 2 years I think my body is immune to.it. can I ask.for a new gp or what are my rights. I have a bit of money saved up.for santa I was thinking of using it to go private get some proper answers as I'm that bad. Any advice? ??
