Hey, I’m 20 and had surgery 6 years ago. Helped hugely but never got rid of symptoms completely. Past couple years symptoms have started to creeep back. My surgeon changed hospitals 1yr post op and my new NS wasn’t really a specialist and never seemed to really listen, I was discharged 3yrs post op despite daily headaches. She said “everyone gets headaches - its normal”, so I just kind of dealt with stuff my self but it’s got to the point now where I’ve got my GP to refer me to NS near University. Im on no meds and really struggling pain wise, missing class, sleep and social stuff. Do I just wait till I see the NS (don’t know when I’ll get an appt) or go and see the GP? I feel it will be pointless going to the GP cause I think they’ll just say wait to see the NS or try and give me codeine (which I know doesn’t work for me - I’m deficient in the enzyme that breaks it down). I know tramadol will work but I don’t want to be drugged up :/ Sorry that was rather a ramble! But yeah I’m just fed up of constantly being in pain.
