I was back at the GP’s office today. The painkillers were not working. The GP swapped the Co-codamol for Tramadol 50mg and gave me a sick note for 2 weeks. It is clear that whilst in this amount of pain I am unable to work. I work in an office but have to park a short walk from the building which is becoming extremely painful. The pain I have throughout the day means I have to rotate between sitting, standing and lying down. I can’t lay down at work!
