Tell me, is it ‘our lot’ now to be constantly in pain to some degree, be it, muscular, nerve or otherwise, or are we right to have an expectation for our medications to work within a couple of hours and take any pain ‘away’? Am I living in cuckoo land, are there such medications? Is it our choice of GPs and their knowledge of MS and its many variations when prescribing the correct ones?
Sorry, I’m ranting again. It’s just that I’ve been in pain to some degree or other since Christmas and I don’t feel like anything is really taking care of it. Yet all I hear is “increase the dose”. I’ve now been started on 600mg Pregabalin from 375mgs and felt that’s a bit too much all at once so GP brought it down a bit and wants me to phase it up over 3 weeks. It’s like they don’t know what they’re doing!
