I have been suffering for a little ver a year now. Prescribed morphine 3 months ago. Since then the dosage has had to be doubled about 2 weeks ago. I have had the last 6 weeks off work as i couldnt afford not to be anymore!
Yesterday was an eruption day. I was in agony all day even though i had taken 1 60mg Modified release morphine tablet and 3 10mg morphine tablets, 1 every 4 hours. By 5:30pm i rang the NHS 111 where they told me to go straight to our local community hospital. I crept into it slightly hunched over with tears pouring down my face in pain to find it was purely an out of hours GP!
he gave me a 30mg shot of morphine which helped along with taking my next 60mg modified release and a gabapentin 100mg pill. he then sent me home and sent a report to my GP advising him to actually do something and sort this out!! As a man of 28 should not be bent in half pouring with tears in pain. I found it hard to walk back to the car where my father brought me home. I was still sore and slightly painful even after that lot but it helped me live with it for another day!
I rang the GP this morning to find out he hadnt done a pain clinic refferal which he told me he would do nearly 4 weeks ago as he was waiting for my blood test results! Im sorry, im no doctor but a blood test isnt going to tell him to flick a switch and turn this pain off overnight!
I now have an emergency appointment this afternoon with him where if he doesnt do the refferal i will switch doctors. I am now taking 60mg modified release every 12 hours, 2 10mg morphine every 4 hours with a 3rd if needed and gabapentin!
I find myself thinking i am in an NHS abbortoir and it feels like they are trying to kill me by ignoring my repeated requests for help and hitting me with morphine more and more!
This is all after they tell me there is nothing wrong! I can assure them, i am trying my hardest to keep going but if they had this back, i bet they wouldnt have hesitated to go private and get sorted fast!
