Dr prescribed Diazepam and Codeine for the pain. Unfortunately I had a bad reaction to the Codeine, bad pain in upper stomach, sweating and nausea. We phoned 111 and they were worried it might be a heart attack and sent an ambulance. After they did ECG and other checks (my blood pressure was way up), thought it might be gastric upset and phoned a Dr to get advice. He didn't think it was the pills as it came on 4 hours after taking them. So I took the next one at 8.30pm, at 9.30 I could feel it starting again, not quite so bad, but felt nauseous again. Decided to take no more. Phoned the surgery this morning and am waiting for a Dr to call back to recommend a different painkiller. Pain is terrible, only heat brings some relief.
I have an appointment with a Bowen therapist tomorrow in the next village, hoping for a good result. Happy days!
