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.

If your GP doesnt know what to do then he must refer you to a specialist who can.

Has he given you any reasons to why hes not?

I would be asking again to be refered and a valid reason to why not! You need help with your pain and they should be supporting you

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.

Tracie you have to keep fighting, you are entitled to go to GP's outside your area if you cannot get any satisfaction from your present GP. Speak to PALS they can intervene for you

Aaaawww Tracie

You are being turned away from every where you go. Do you have a close friend or someone in your family that would be able to come with you next time? I agree with Denys you need help and support from PALS, its disgusting that your GP, A&E and out of ours are not doing anything to help you get some pain relief. It sounds to me like you need an urgent referal to the pain clinic and like others have said you need a firm diagnosis so that you can start with the treatment you so desperately need. What do they actually say to you when you go to A&E and out of hours? I dont know how they live with themselves turning you away when you are in so much pain, i know i couldnt cope without my pain relief and i am on Morphine, Dehydrocodeine, Paracetamol and Oxcodone, i know everyone is at a different stage with fibro and also have other ailments as i know i do but they should be treating the pain that you are constantly presenting with.

Please, please contact PALS either in person at your local hospital or Google PALS and give them a call immediately as you really do need some help now.

Good luck Milly :hugs: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :blowkiss:

Hi

Goodness me you must be on a real mixture of medication for gp to use this as the reason and the only reason i say this is because i take 93 ttablets a day which include morphine, oxycodone and dehydrocodeine, steroids, crohns, blood pressure,diabetes, osteoporosis and many other drugs. Surely to god there must be something what is wrong with the medics in your area it is absoloutly ludicrous. Have you had any problems with drugs in the past? some people are more prone to addiction or are sensitive to certain drugs. I dont know what else to suggest except strongly advise you to contact pals as a matter of urgency. Did you say you had tried cocodamol 8/500 that can be bought over the counter at the chemist? If not it could be worth a try!!!

Good luck with this
