DM 75 has MS. Newly in a care home. DF recently passed. They used to get by as he would give her over the counter pain meds on demand.
Now she is in a care home they wont give her ibuprofen. Repeated doc visits and they only insist she takes codeine, paracetamol. She refuses codeine. She forgets about pain when talking to doc and doesn't push it. We've been going round and round in circles for months.
I am finally here from Canada, seeing the doc in morn. What can I say to get them to ramp it up?! I have done video calls with doc but keep getting fobbed off. Anyone articulate out there? She is in too much pain to get out of bed so she sleeps all day and can't sleep at night. She's miserable. I want a morphine patch or something.
Your tips for more pain meds from doc
