So I’ve recently moved and finally found an understanding and caring and non judgmental GP. She increased my targin to 30mg twice a day and 75mg Lyrica at night.
It’s only been a few days but the tweaking seems to have worked really well. I went for an hour walk this morning and no pain which is miraculous.
Obviously I’m concerned about overdoing it with exercise and the GP has recommend hydrotherapy to begin back and core rehab rather than trying Pilates straight away. Had anyone done hydrotherapy for weight loss and strengthening then moved successfully onto Pilates.
I left the new doctors office in tears of relief as I wasn’t treated like a druggy for the first time ever and she even gave me a hug when i left.
She is also going to refer me to a pain management psychologist and my husband and I to a clinical psychologist for our ongoing toxic marriage which has recently nearly resulted in separation. We have three kids 8,6 and 3. We are getting along well at present but it’s always in the back of my mind that it will explode again soon. We have been in this cycle for most of 14 years.
I don’t really know why I’m posting just wanting to talk to someone I guess.
I hope everyone is making some progress and I pray that we will all be completely healed from chronic pain forever.
We are always here some of us sleep during the so we can fly out at night to suck some hold on wrong forum .
We are here come rain ,hail,or shine like the postie if we don’t reply straight away it’s because we are chasing bad guys away ,
Good to hear that things are on the up I have just have nerve burning L3 to S1 so about eight burns it gives me some relief for a few months .
Keep plugging away on the forum and if you give some good exercise,food,holiday ideas share
as long as I wake up alive I'm happy
Because it could be worse
Isn’t it lovely to find a GP who listens and treats you like a patient instead of just another number for the day.
I thought I had a great GP, I won’t get long winded about it all but I do believe I wore him down but more than that it got to the point he wouldn’t even look up from his computer, like a robot he would say “what’s wrong today” or similar ... and it wasn’t as if I was seeing him weekly or even monthly ... the straw that broke the back was the time I went in with my wife, I was severely depressed, in constant pain and barely able to talk ... the mongrel ¥€^# didn’t even have the decency to speak with my wife ... I just spat it and told him he was not worthy to be called a Dr. and we left.
I have been seeing a lovely caring female Dr for a few years now, no ten minute appointments, she doesn’t rush me, she really epitomises what a Dr should be like. We have talks about how I’m coping and I know she cares.
I just wanted to say to you that I know how you were feeling. And I wish you well.
