I am sorry to hear you are experiencing this.

If you have taken ibuprofen, paracetamol and now morphine yet your pain is still severe, I would strongly urge you contact your GP urgently or attend Accident and Emergency.

If you are in this much pain and cannot move, it would be reasonable to call an ambulance for this sir.
