I have not been for imaging, my Doctor feels it's just general wear and tear and the nature of the job which I do, he has told me I need to find a job which is less evasive, like working in a clinic, I have worked in the nursing home for 4 years and it is difficult to find a job in a clinic, they are very hard to come by. I am quite tall and have to do a lot of bending down whilst doing medications or patients dressings, maybe it is just a problem of being tall and I can only think that this pain will get worse, I feel my GP is worried of the addictive problems increasing my analgesia, but at present I could not be able to live a day without the co-codamol, so I am probably addicted to them already. I have found this website because I do not know where else to turn.
I have had no structural assessment or manual medicine.
I thought 400mg ibuprofen TDS was the maximum dose per day?, but I will visit my GP and ask him if I could be referred to an orthopedist. Thank you.
