Hello, thank you for trusting JustAnswer with your question. I’m Dr. Ben and I’m here to assist you today. Please allow me a few moments to review your question and I’ll be right back.

I’m sorry to hear about this problem.

Is there anything in particular you would like to ask me?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
The pain is to the point im struggling to walk and move my right leg without pain, im also passing what seems to be like a period but very dark brownish blood. Ive had dihydracodeine but with no help, just a bit stuck on what to do
I understand and I’m sorry your having significant pain.

Do you have any other medications available to take?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
I have gabapentin there but its previously had no help, theres not much painkillers that do help. Im just worried incase a cyst has ruptured as ive had that before and it feels similiar

If you can tolerate Ibuprofen okay, then this can be helpful. However, I expect higher doses will be needed i.e. 800mg up to three times per day (max 2.4g in 24hr).

If the symptoms are severe and/or you feel generally unwell then consider attending A&E and I’m sure they will be able to help.
