Has anyone had a private consultation for pain management? How much did it cost? Was it a success?

I suffer from chronic pain. Each day is getting harder. I normally have two pain injections a year. But since the pandemic i have not had any pain injections for two years.

I have been chasing the injections every few weeks but still nothing. I spoke to my doctor today and to be honest did not show much interest.

They do not offer the best support to be honest and don't really understand what i am going through. One of the doctors who is sometimes there is good but he splits his time between three surgeries.

It has come to a point now where enough is enough. I am getting little support from my doctors and the tablets they provide a lot of the time dont touch the surface.

I need the support from the doctors and need a solution for my chronic pain. I am just wondering if anyone went for a private consultation to try and get things sorted and if so how much did it cost and was it a success

    Hi @happyfella :) 

    I'm sorry to hear that your pain is troubling you so much, and that you don't feel as though you're getting enough support from your GP. 

    I don't have any personal experience of seeking private treatment for chronic pain, but I hope one of our members does. I've marked your post as unanswered to indicate to other members that you don't yet have an answer to your query.
