Default Had enough

I've been sooooo upset and down I've been waiting eight months to hear from a specialist it's getting me soo down I had to change doctors and now my meds too so I've changed meds five times now! I need to vent I have just been crying with all the pain and stress I'm in I don't know how much more I can take I'm fed up I can't see a physio until my old doctor sends my xrays to my new one. No one understands and I don't understand why I'm tired all the time

It seems a bit unusual you have to be kept in the dark like that.

I don't recall where you are. Are you in an isolated area?

You have probably done this already - but phone them, quite often, to try and move ahead with an appointment date. Hopefully you will not be waiting too much longer.

And, I would definitely razz up your old doctor BIG TIME and tell him to get a wriggle on and send along your x-rays!

Hi thanks guy I just went and saw my new doctor she ran and got my X-ray results and has set up a physio appointments for me I start going on Thursday but it's only for five sessions and she sent a letter out to my specialist to get things moving along because I've had enough and I want answers and results ASAP I don't live in the country I live in Melbourne. I'm feeling a little better about things today I just want to see my specialist ASAP and I've have been given the same meds but they have been upped by my doctor.

Does anyone else on here feel tired all the time?? I'm not sure why I do I know I can't sleep at night from pain and I can't get comfortable and I think about things and I've been stressing.

Yes. Always. Tired is my middle name. My entire life I think

Tired from dealing with scoliosis and discomfort and never sleeping well. Then tired from surgery...

But feeling optimistic I will soon have some energy!

Yes I know exactly how you feel I feel like that everydayand I'm really getting sick and tired of all of this I don't want to feel like this for the rest of my life. I wonder if surgery makes you feel better and not get pain or feel tired.

If it helps...I have just come home from work to have a bit of a lie down as my pain was intolerable...not sure why so bad today. So bad, at the traffic lights I undid my bra to ease the pressure

In bed now, hoping to feel better in an hour or so, then back to work. I work in a hotel, and sometimes can get an empty room to have a rest, but we are fully booked today. Lucky I am not so far from home.

You are sooo not alone and most of us fully understand how hard it can be.

It sounds like you are close to some advice.
