Rheumatoid arthuritus and pain killers
Hi I've just had a big toe infusion seeing as my arthritis destroyed my toe joint . I also need a knee replacement . And I'm in a lot of pain my foot is in plaster cast and I suffer with thrombosis I've not long had a DVT in the same leg and been on morphine on and off since last july with diazepam. I have an allergy to most pain killers on the market . As follows : pizotifen Tramodol ibuprofen citalopram diclofenic codeine co-codemol co- dridomol. I am in so much pain that I carnt sleep and now I'm told I carnt have morphine no more as I will need to have it on my next operation which is understandable. But in the mean time they say take paracetamol which don't work . I've tried ice packs for the knee I even elevate the knee at night I just don't know what to do any more my walking is very limited
