After a hip and knee replacement on the right, and subsequently finding I had a quite bad scoliosis made much worse by unequal leg length, I am in such pain. My back has been very painful for a long time, way before the hip replacement 10 years ago. I am on Tramadol, Naproxen and Amitriptilyne much to no effect now. I was prescribed Gabapentin 3 months ago, but stopped taking them 3 weeks back as no improvement noticed. I did titrate down but only for 2 weeks. The pain is much much worse. I noticed also around Xmas that the other hip was starting to hurt similar to the replaced one plus that pain seems to be going down to the knee. So what with the back, the hip the knee and a long standing bursitis in the unoperated thigh I am at my wits end. Any thought folks? A bullet might work!! I have an appointment with my GP tomorrow.
