Did they not suggest something? Can you call your Dr and ask what you can do? I am sorry you are in so much pain

What about looking into non~drug ways to ease things. Applying things like heat to affected areas can help ease things. Lots of us have the wheaty bags that can be warmed up in the mikey, and as well as the warmth from them, they are often infused with lavender, which can help with relaxation and easing tensions in some people. A hottie bottie wrapped in a towel with water heated up to a nice and comfortable temperature in it can help, as can a relaxing soak in a warm bath. A TENs machine can also help with easing things, so may be something else to consider.

You should go back to your gp Tracie and explain what medications you have tried and tell them that they have not worked. Have they referred you to see a Rheumy if not you could ask them to do that, they might be able to dx you and give you some meds to help with the pain.

Have you contacted all the other surgeries in your area to confirm that they are all full and not accepting any patients at all??? It seems strange that they are all in the same position :-? :-? :-? :-?

And I'm with what Lisa and Shaz have said about going back and pushing for a referral to a specialist, esp with you saying that he doesn't know what to do next :-? :-? :-? :-? :-?

Definitely go back to your GP and ask for a referral. My GP told me on the phone one day that he was struggling as he had no idea what was wrong with me (I had severe vertigo and balance problems), but still tried to get away with not referring me to a specialist. He even wrote to an ENT specialist for advice to avoid referring me! In the reply he got, the specialist said there was one test he could do to prove or disprove that my symptoms were caused by an inner-ear problem, so in the end, he succumbed and said "Ok, well I'd better refer you then hadn't I?" The specialist did the test, which ruled out an inner-ear problem, and so he referred me on for a brain scan, and I now have an appointment with him next week to discuss the results. If I had not pushed for the referral I would not have had any of these tests and would be no further forward. Even if all other causes are ruled out and it does end up to be the Fibro/ME, then at least I will know for sure.

Just remember, your GP is there to provide a service for you, so you have a right to persist for something you feel will help you.

Good luck.
