Have had a lot happen since I last posted here, but am feeling quite hopeful at the moment.
I had a couple of appointments last week one good one bad. The bad one was with the chronic pain clinic.
The consultant was an arrogant ass basically lol. He has taken me off lyrica and put me on nortriptaline which I'm ok with. I asked about upping the frequency of my b12 injections as I always get a little relief when I have them, he looked at me as if I had 2 heads lol. He said he didn't see why that would happen and I may as well inject myself with salt water and claim it's a homeopathic miracle cure!!!! I just thought to myself why should I bother, he's referring me to the pain clinic to see if they can help with anything.
The 2nd appointment was with the tinnitus specialist who agreed that b12 may be the issue and she would like me to have month,y injections which she is writing to my gp about.
Managed to get in to see one of the younger gp's in the practice and he has changed my meds and put me on a 3 month trial of b12 injections to see if they help with the tinnitus issue, I get my first monthly jab on Friday.
I'm feeling very hopeful that this gp is prepared to listen to what I have to say and when I next go to see him I will take along some info for him to read too.
On a side note, the next few months are going to be busy for me especially October and early November. My mum was diagnosed with breast cancer, she had a lumpectomy and they got it all out thankfully but she had to have a months worth of radiotherapy so I will be ferrying her back and forth to the hospital for that AND I start an open university degree on 1st October which I am really Loki g forward to. 😊
