    Poor you, what caused the pain? Have you seen anyone about the pain? I hope you get it sorted. Make sure you speak to your doctor about alternative medicine when you see someone and tell the truth I'm in pain and it is stopping me sleeping.

    Wow 5 meds and your still crying? Maybe it is time for an adjustment in your meds. Please seek professional help regarding this matter. The meds don’t seem to be working. I’m so sorry that you are feeling so low I know exactly what it is like. My doc just kept changing the meds until they worked. I cried a lot we finally found the right meds I am only on 3 that is still a lot but they work. Please call a professional if you don’t get the results that you need, find another dr. Best of luck

    Hello Dawn so sorry that you are in pain. Is the pain physical? If so is the doctor aware of this and if not will you notify him asap? Diane

    Are they pain meds? Have you tried heat and ice? I’m sorry for your pain it can be depressing. If you sleep on your side it helps to put a pillow between your legs. If you sleep on your back it helps to put a pillow under the calves to raise the legs. When do you see the specialist?

    Pain can make everything sooo much worse. Do anything that you can to make yourself as comfortable as possible forget everything else, right now you have to come first. Xxx

    Oh I’m so sorry. 7 weeks? The pain meds don’t work? I would call the dr again and stress how much pain you are in. This is no way to live. You need medical attention. Please call them again you need to be comfortable.

      I saw her on the 2nd and she explained that with the meds I am taking it is normal to be tired! Will see if I can see her tomorrow, will have to wait until the morning to possibly get an appointment!

      I am on cocodamol x3 lots a day with Ibuprofen in between those doses! then I am on Citalopram and Amitriptyline 25mg at night but can add in 10mg if I cant rest/sleep.

      The amitriptyline does work making me tired so I sleep but I just feel that I am tired all the time.
