Hi i am in need of some advice and guidance. My health has deteriorated rapidly oevr the last yearand the lsit of healthproblems has grown to stupid levels. This all has a negative impact on my mental health as you all will understand. 5 years ago severe backpain started and an MRI showed prolapse disc L1/2 and established arthritis in thoracic lumbar region.
In the last few months I have been diagnsed with moderate COPD and had about 12 courses of antibiotics, now on 3 inhalers and tablets for that.
! month ago I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome.
My joints have hurt for a long time and now the pain n my left knees is terrible and it feels like I have hot needles shooting down my shins. My ankles swell and the skin on my right leg gets red and sore.
I am in pain in a morning and all day resting/ exercise make no difference . I have tried various combinations, I am overweight having gained loads since I stoppped smoking 2 years ago and being put on Sertraline 150mg for mood. I am trying to lose weight and have been referred for a specialist weight management programme but the wait for assssment alone is 10 months
I am on a heap of medication for many ailments and feel like stopping the lot and starting again. I would like to know if any of you good people know how to get the best input for so many complaints as I feel torn between different GPs in the practice.
I am a person who needs a diagnosis so that i can learn how to manage my problem but noone seems to offer these any more in the NHS
