doctor refuses to help with my pain
A new Dr! Great I thought! My Dr has made my symptoms worse I have never had such widespread unrelenting pain. I had a NHS fibro pack sent to him. I sent in articles from fibro.uk magazine, I shouted at him and cried. He did not know what to do. He asked me which medication I would like to try as I had the info. I have been prescribed tablets willy-nilly with no follow up.
He would not make decisions as we were always waiting for letters from other departments.
I took an overdose, I was so tired -nothing!
Last week he told me that nothing would get rid of the pain so there was nothing more he could do.
I have now got a problem with my shoulder which pain makes me feel sick, I have been referred to the hospital but given nothing to ease the pain.
I am at the end of my tether and don’t know what to do. We have decided to see Prof. Davies hoping he can ease things if only a bit. This will be expensive what with the fees and travelling to Bristol.
I also have depression apparently that makes my case complicated. None of the Drs in the practice will treat me because my case is complicated!!
I will try anything but it needs to be structured, not hit and miss.
I don’t know what to do.
Any help would be appreciated
