I have high ferritin levels (over 800) but its not haemochromotosis.
I recently had a bad fall (torn shoulder tendon) and had to get my shoulder operated on. I was prescribed strong pain killers (palexia). its called tapentadol. Ive stopped taking them as I worry theyre making me worse- but the pain persists.
I am always so exhausted. I lie in bed all day. My joints hurt everywhere. My kids say ive become moody and irritable.
im not sure what to do- my GP is struggling to assist. People tell me to go to emergency room but im not sure.
