    Southdoc

    Mrs Piquet has an awful pain in her back and is in bed all day. She can't move so we rang Southdoc at half five and they said they'd be here in about two hours. Their latest ETA is Ten o clock. Is this usual?

    Sorry to hear that Piquet. Only seen them at Kinsale road or Blackpool. Kinsale road is a disaster never see you remotely close to appointment time so if their coming from there it sounds about right.
    We'll engrave your name in gold, as we did in days of old.
    Roll along lovely Axel, roll along.

        Yes, he came at around five to ten and gave her an injection. he gave her a letter for A&E in case it doesn't take. We'll probably have to call an ambulance to get her over there.

          Prob a pethidne injection, had it myself, if Mrs piquet is having back spasms that leave you grounded (to be polite) diazapen is the only way.

            She'll be out of her bin if she starts popping diazepam. Herself had pupils like black saucers when she was on them.

              For back spasms that have you in bed, you don't pop diazapen, and they don't make you "out of your bin"

                The diazepam is used as a muscle relaxant and depending on the dosage it can make you feel out of your bin.

                  It's a disc problem of some sort. Difene is the drug of choice.

                    that's why it worked for me, I don't need to be more out of my bin.

                      That's generally the first port of call.

                      Going to A&E will be a waste of time. If it last more than a few days get the GP to refer her for a MRI.

                        Agreed unless there is no alternative for Pain Relief.

                        Will do. She was told to stay in bed for 72 hours to let it settle. It was the fact that Difene and then Solpodol had no effect on the pain levels and she was unable to get out of bed led us to call Southdoc and put up with a five and a half hour wait.

                          Herself went the difene/solpodol route and then had to supplement it with diazepam and lyrica. 32 months later she's about to undergo SNRB treatment in the hope of 'curing' it.
