My husband have advanced diabetic neuropathy. A condition where his feet are in constant pain. There is no known treatment and the only thing doctors can do is relieve the pain through pain medication. Outside the UK his condition was under control, pain medication stable for years and he could lead a somewhat normal life (Still handicapped by not being able to feel his feet, not being able to walk long distances etc.) - Here in the UK however, we have been told by a number of NHS doctors now that pain management/pain relief is NOT something that is done here. So the only relief is either black market narcotics or suicide. - Is that really so? Did we drop into a dystopian nightmare when I accepted work in the UK?
