I have an ongoing issue with my neck that has caused me a great deal of pain on & off for years. Ive never been given a diagnosis but nothing showed up on the mri i had last time it was bad so im assuming its muscular.
Im just wondering if anyone has any tips for getting the doctor to take this seriously? Its getting bad again & im struggling to be a good mum when im in this much pain every day.
Ive been to so many gps over the years & because they can't physically see anything wrong, then apparently 'theres nothing wrong' & they basically just say to go & take some panadol. Even thats a joke cause panadol doesnt even touch it. It has to be nurofen or stronger. So im basically just suffering through at the moment cause i dont want to take nurofen 24/7 while im breastfeeding.
Ive told them how it affects my life & it just doesn't help, they don't get it & dont seem to care. Ive spent a fortune on gps & am yet to find one who will listen regarding my pain.
Any tips for getting them to listen, or what i can say?
