i've been on morphine and pregabalin now for 4 years, and have given up on my GP completely. every time i used to go to the docs to say there's more pain or problems they just refer me to another doctor or hospital... even if i want to increase my pain killers they have to refer me to the pain clinic..... can this man actually do anything apart from refer me to every other tom dick and harry??? .... has anyone had the same feelings.... now if i'm in pain or things get worse. i don't even go to the docs any more... i just ride it out... what's the point.. he will just refer me and by the time i get the letter asking me the phone and make an appointment that can be anything from 3 to 8 weeks away and then only for it to be canceled and rescheduled its really not worth it any more....and even if i do want to see my doctor i have to wait 3 weeks any way or see a nurse who is no good for anything unless u have a cold or a chest infection... .... i have no faith in my surgery at all any more
