High ferritin levels and post shoulder tendon operation pain/Exhausted?

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.

    Get up and get some fresh air. There are masses of different painkillers talk to your Doctor.

    What could ER do in a pandemic.No one should be in bed all day. I worked with a broken arm in a sling for 6 weeks. Get up and get on with life.
