So here's my story; I'm male in my 30's, had an accident 4-5 years ago. Slipped 5 discs (L1-L5)
Since then, I've been battling with hospitals, GP's, physio etc and my condition seems to be getting worse.
In the last 8 months, my condition took a turn for the worse, another MRI has shown that my S1 is now involved with discs still bulged (L4-L5).
I'm also awaiting my results on my last MRI from my pelvis and hip, which in my thoughts will be bad due the the crunching and chronic pain their giving me.
I'm currently getting prescribed for pain relief: oramorph (60ml daily), codeine (90mg daily).
(i used to get pregabalin 225mg- i asked to stop because they made me feel doped up and that affected my job).
Here's my problems(!): This is a lot of medication - and most days its not enough, some days not enough at all! I also have IBS, the oramorph seems not to agree with me.
Telling the above to my GP - is like banging my head on a brick wall. My GP suggests taking me off oramorph,which we've tried before with no avail, leaving me in chronic unmanageable pain.
I just dont know where to go from here...
