Good evening

For pain there is nothing you can do yourself with medicine from over the counter..If its this severe I would suggest going to the A&E before it gets unbearable at night. Might need some intramuscular painkillers and stronger oral pain killers

Oh dear. Went to A&E on Tuesday evening with my husband for a head injury. Waited 5 and half hours only to be told another 8 hr wait to see Doctor.

Got home at 2 am having not seen a Dr
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I think I am going to have to wait it out till my dentist opens tomorrow

Or a walk in center...You need better pain killers before the pharmacies close

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Ok thanks for the advice I will see if the walk in centre is still open.

Best wishes.  Please feel free to contact me if there is anything else I can help with.  Have a nice day.
