    Good morning @Nicetomeetyou22,

    I'm sorry to hear that you've woken up with a lot of pain - have you mentioned this to your GP today? It might be worthwhile updating them and seeing what they can offer you support wise :)

    I hope the pain eases a little bit and you can take some time to rest today.

    @Libby_Scope no point in speaking to doctor about it as I'm already on dihydrocodiene for pain relief I'm on a waiting list to start having injections instead of going through the rest of my life in tablets as I have alot of diff tablets to take everyday I'm like a walking chemist haha 😄

    I am in a lot of pain today. I  visited my GP today and he has increased my pain medication and said he said that he will refer me to the pain clinic as well as to receive physio therapy.

    So glad to see you smokey - pain clinic's can be very helpful and supportive hope you don't have to wait long - but at least something is happening in the back ground for you.
