Subject: A PAIN IN THE ;#**#;

This last few weeks have been a pain in the ;#**#; to say the least.I thought that I had pulled a ligament or mussle in my knee,I thought it was because I had done it trying to cycle,BUT it's arthritis....very painful,I have got it in my back in the spine. and foot. now my KNEE. thankfully I have some antiflamatory pills from the doctor,I have co-dydromal for my back so I have two lots,and yes it is helping,this cold damp weather ia a bitch,it is getting to all and sundrey,I am trying to keep mobile,I am going out tomorrow,so this should be fun and games, I have an appointment,and know that I can get there,I will make sure I enjoy it,theres a good market on so it will make up for the pain,and I can flake out at home. sorry to winge I know you have a lot more to be mad at with this wretched arthritis than me,and I can get out. all the best to you all I hope that you all have a good xmas,give it your best shot gill

Hi Gill, sorry you are having a rough time of it. You don't say what type of arthur you have I have OA and yes this weather is a pain in the backside. I went to the canary islands for two weeks last month, my pain was so much less and the swollen joints all but disappeared. Now after two weeks i'm back to square one horrendous pain and swollen joints.If I could up sticks and relocate there i would, but this is not an option, doesn't come on the nhs LOL.
I hope your day out is fun, make sure you take your pain meds. Hoping you have a good Christmas also. We all need a bit of cheer lets hope we all keep well to enjoy friends family and all that goes with it. Take Care hope you feel better soon.

Hi Gill,you sound a lot more cheerful. Those Lotto numbers evade me every week,LOL. Its great dreaming what you could do with the money. I'm looking forward to Christmas as well. Family gathering at my sons,eleven altogether. It should be fun ages from 86yrs down to 17months. Then a relaxing boxing day at home with hubby.Watching all the rubbish on tele. Just the way I like it. I hope you have a Happy One and to all the other girls and guys on here have a Good One. Take Care.

hello, Gill... can I suggest you something I tried myself and benefited... (1) 1 small soon of grounded black paper in a cup of hot water ( drink like you take tea) .. 3/4 cups a day
(2) accu-pressure : fold yr arm, yr palm near yr chest, press the crease of yr right elbow with thumb of yr other hand.... press for 1 minute & release... repeat it for other elbow... do these few times a day
(3)press between your thumb & index finger with your thumb of other hand.. 1 min each time .. repeat 5 time in each session... 5 times a day

these accupressure points re-juvinates yr nerves... you will feel better immediately

4) eat raw Celery (vegetables) time to time

please post here how you are feeling now
keep faith in Accupressure.. it is tremendous power within youself.

tks... Sidney

Hi that makes three of us i watched G-Force with my hubby, we loved it.Glad you had a good christmas. OA is a pain in the butt literally. It has a bad habit of spreading quiet quickly I know when mine was at its worst before diagnoses i was climbing the wall with pain. Like to-day the cold weather is driving my joints nuts. Happy New Year to you also Take Care.

Hi Gill, I also had a quiet New Year with Hubby. It was all I wanted. Had a busy Christmas with the family all of us includinig the 3 grandkids it was great. I need to rest up a bit like you my pain is pretty bad. This rain that has arrived is not helping. I'm glad you don't let it spoil anything, that's the spirit when i'm busy it can take a back seat. I have enough of it ruining things. I try not to plan ahead and when I have a good few days I make the most of it. BE GOOD whats that i'm too old to worry about being good!!!! so what they gonna do hahahah. Take Care best wishes for a pain free New Year X

Hi Gill don't worry about your brother in law T2 is not so bad these days. I;ve had it for about 6 years now and I'm still here. But best not to eat sweet stuff but ironically that's exactly what we T2's crave for the insulin !! As long as he's getting regular check up's at the Diabetic Clinic he should be fine. Hope U feeling better ;-)

Hi,thats the crazy world of the human race,we can't win for pain and tring to enjoy life,sorry marlene to hear you have upped your meds,and to your hubby to,pain who wants it aaye.it don't help this damp weather,I have been taking more than I should on the pain killers,but you do your best in this world,I have stayed in more to keep warm,but sometimes it's so sooo damp that the pain won't go so I guess I know how you feel when you have extra's to take on the meds.as for my brother in law he's a cheeky begger,I don't no how he gets aeay with it what he eats and yes it's a lot better on diabetes 2 as you said.but old habits die hard,he likes the sweet things in life,but so do I and I do worry for him,I worry as he is autistic(to clever by far)and it takes a few times for the penny to drop.he had a brother that died because of diabetes 1 and everything went wrong for the poor bloke,kidneys and waiting for a transplant,he was to weak for all the help,and died,so I worry.but still he likes to enjoy life so who am I to argue.now for the sad things .I am only joking.I am OK and ready almost for next CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR.HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA SEE YA
