Thank you for your query.

I can understand your concern and do not feel sorry for seeking our views.

Though you have mentioned about your medication I would like to know your mobility following the neck fracture. If your mobility is restricted then lack of exercise can also give you a feeling of tiredness. Moreover pain takes a very long time to get relieved more so in elderlies (you mention that you are a pensioner). This is certainly making you depressed.

I would suggest that you make yourself slightly more active under supervision of your physiotherapist and request your doctor to give your some sedative for a few days. However do not get habituated to the sedative.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing you an early recovery.
