Hello, i’m not sure if this is the right forum for this but i was hoping someone could give some advice...
Over a year ago i injured my shoulder and have scapular winging caused by a crushed long thoracic nerve. I am undergoing medical treatment with nerve conduction tests, physiotherapy and scans.
I’ve also been given medication to take, Co-Codamaol, Pregabalin, Tramadol, Naproxen and more. As i have been on these medications since the injury occurred i believe i have become reliant on them. I begin shivering and sweating, being sick, i get severe headaches and i am unable to sleep if i miss a dose or do not take the correct amount.
I need these pain killers for the pain i get from the injury as it has not made much improvement but i cannot cope with how i feel on it. I’m dizzy constantly and feel sick and confused.
Does anyone else know about how to cope with these symptoms and any holistic approaches to pain management?
