Dr refused repeat prescription painkillers

My Dr has refused my repeat prescription request for painkillers, I've been taking them regularly 4 times a day for the past month or so on the advice of the physio, as opposed to as and when. I usually collect them a couple of days before I run out, I last got some about a week ago and put in an early request as it is really difficult for me to get to the Dr's next week so I thought I could collect them early. My question is have they refused them as they may think that I'm misusing them? I'm really worried that they won't prescribe them to me anymore because of this, as I obviously need them. I'm not due a meds review just yet either.
I can't get an appointment with my doctor until next week either, so I'm having to make do with a phone appointment at the end of the week with a doctor that I don't know!

Would it be worth speaking to the receptionist and explaining why you need to see the doctor sooner. My last GP did this to me, she was an absolute cow! I've changed GP now and found one that is so supportive :D I hope you get your meds soon!

Thanks Claire, I spoke to the receptionist regarding the issue yesterday but she said there was no appointments and Friday was the only phone appointment available!
