Anaphylaxis and PIP query
Hello community..l was wondering is there anyone in the community that can not take any kind of painkilling medication due to anaphylactic shock..l can not even take a paracetamol and find that l life is difficult with me oesteo arthritis and asthma..l do carry two epi pens with me at all times and wear an emergency bracelet that has saved my life twice..doctors and nurse don't always connect the dots and can sometimes just be treated like the last patient..as one doctor actually nearly killed me so lm very wary of medical people..l was wanting to ask the community if they think l would be deemed to be able to do things safely regarding pip decsion maker. I think most people who are in pain would agree that pain can limit your ability to do some things ..and somewhat unsafely..bit long sorry..but would love to hear people's views..
