Back in emergency again today.
I lost control of my pain again today or actually it started last night. I have been having a lot of trouble with reflux and my GP increased the med for that but a week later it got terrible, so I dropped into a local surgery and the Dr took me off Naproxan SR 1000 I had been on, as he believed that it could be causing some of the problem. He said if I had any trouble he would give me a more modern med called Mobic.
So things spiralled out of control and and I ended up driving to the hospital. Now if my doctor would give me a fast acting pain killer this would not happen. But I have not been able to find a doctor that will. I think I am going to start looking for a better PM doctor again. I know there is a Pain clinic at one of the major hospitals in Brisbane but I don't know if it is the right one for me. I will just keep battling on, as I have no other option.
I am still not completely right but hay what can I do.
