pain clinic update.

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi every one, I had my 1st appointment at the pain.clinic last week and felt very relieved after wards, I am trying a new heat cream that numbs nerve ends so I'm. Hoping it helps but I have also been offered acupuncture and plates, so I have agreed to that so just waiting on appointments to come through. I also have frozen shoulder.now which is very painful so hope I will manage. The nurse I saw at the clinic seemed to have a very clear understanding of Fibro and it was such a relief the someone is finally listening and trying to help me. Just had to share as I feel so lucky to have come across such a lovely nurse xxxx gentle hugs xx

    SNAP I have had FIBROMYALGIA for 8years and had frozen shoulder for 4 years which resulted into a full tendon tear which meant I had to have shoulder surgery 9 weeks ago. Having Fibromyalgia has doubled the recovery time which also means I cannot drive and am .going nuts as I cannot work,drive living in a remote village with one bus running a day! !!!

    I am finding taking Night Rescue Remedy helps to give one a good night's sleep! I have also decided to go the holistic route as the side effects on these drugs we are given are horrific for me personally. Also I am a single mother with no support so I have to be alert
