A long session with the visiting GP and a young trainee doc yesterday afternoon. Over an hour. I had a full ECG, blood and urine tests. Results to be discussed in two weeks time. She increased my antidepressant dose 100% and added a new drug to my regimen; Pregabalin, for neuropathic pain. It seems that most of the pain I feel in my knees and legs is actually caused by the degeneration of my spine. I checked on the web and learned Pregabalin is also indicated for a few other conditions, including generalized anxiety disorder. I wonder if that influenced her decision to prescribe it.
On the upside, here in the outback all this is free including the medications.
Breakfast: Caffeine plus.
