    I'm afraid we are not medical professionals and will not be able to give you any medical advice on which medication to take. It's also against the rules of the forum to do this. Please see the house rules here. https://www.scope.org.uk/community-house-rules/
    I'd advise you to please speak to your GP.


    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi @gazmaccoyi, welcome to our community :) As Poppy mentions, we aren't medical professionals, so we're not in the best position to give you that advice.

    Did the specialist that diagnosed you give you any next steps, possible treatments for the symptoms? If they didn't I recommend the same as Poppy, seeing your GP as soon as possible and if that's not soon enough you could speak to a pharmacist. Even if you speak to the pharmacist you should still of course speak to your GP about long-term treatment of the pain. 

    Let us know how you get on, I'm just going to pop this into our category about pain management as well.
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
