Am off to the GP’s this morning for a consultation following a disastrous meeting at the pain clinic where I was told my 5yr old nerve pain after a spinal fracture was down to my ‘rather large belly’ and if I lost weight I’d be better. I’ve got an appointment now with a new GP at the practice and literally don’t know what to say? The pain clinic left me distraught and feeling like a complete fraud even though my pain is severe and has been there since day 1 when I was a lot thinner. The Pregabalin caused most of my weight gain and that was prescribed by the pain clinic!
Nervous to meet a new doctor tho, what should I say?
