This afternoon I went to see my GPs again. The pain is a nightmare and disrupting my sleep etc. I saw a different locum and advised what pain I was getting. I told her that I’m taking max doses of the painkillers I’m already on and I’m still in considerable pain. I explained that I use an Ice Pack as well but am still struggling. She gave me the option of Oramorph or Gabapentin, I want to try to get back to work so opted for the Gabapentin 100mg. I have to take 1 today, 2 per day for the next 3 days and then 3 per day for 4 weeks. I will then need to go back to my GPs to see if the dose is ok or if it will need increasing. The Tramadol and Diazepam make me drowsy already so lord knows how I’ll be with the Gabapentin as well!!
This is quite ironic after the post I shared yesterday 🙂
