    Hiya, think you have got to find what painkillers work best for you, am on co-dcoadmol 30/500, my GP asked me to go back onto paracetamol after having morphine due to car accident, have to say paracetamol did nothing for me, perciviered for a while but back to the co-codamol as was in too much pain, they make you a bit woozy to begin with but when u build up a resistance they dont hold the pain, think am gona have to go back to GP see what else he recommends, back to the dihydracodiene I suppose, more constipation x

    I know that one, I started a job 3 weeks ago but only lasted 3 hours at it and ended up in a&e, the job was supposed to be unloading tyres from a trailer however the way in which they did it rolling tyres off the back of a trailer and getting me to catch them was not good. 12 days with my wrist in plaster and 8 days after having the plaster off and my thumb/wrist is killing me. Taking Dihydracodeine and getting terrible bellyache :(

    I was on codeine, have virtually no memory of two months. Got a hellish headache coming off them. I can't take nsaid. I now take paracetamol and amy 20mg at night. My pain is inadequately controlled. The pain only stops when I am asleep and often not then. I have the specialist tomorrow and am going to ask about pain management.
