Re: Arthritis

Diagnosed with lower back arthritis although pain is in my right hip and travels down my leg - pain is truly unbearable, today is so bad cant even get in the car or sit down the pain is just too much. Any advice would be appreciated I am prescribed Solpadol, using Voltarol and having acupuncture once per week, they all help but only minimally. I am an amputee on my oither side so mobility is already restricted thought of this pain continuing at this level scares me

Wish I could help living in pain all or most of your life can be harrowing. Words canāt really help you here imo I think you need to relay your message to your doctor & tell them how you feel about living with the pain your in. Get your message across properly.
I was born disabled then messed my back up witch finished me off. I get it it took a long time to say to myself are you going to let this rule my life sure the pain can bring tears to my eyes but you laugh or cry if you kwim itās a battle with the head as well as the actual pain. You have to learn to live with choric pain increases or you go under. All the best to you,in good faith & goodwill.

I had real problems with my doc not letting me see a top neurologist even though they were offering it free and pushed me up the list as she couldnāt understand why that seeing a local neurologist wouldnt work.
I got someone from a group Iām part off to write in to the manager the way it was put was a failure in service could result in them having to take the blame or words to that account.
They took it seriously and I was of to see that neurologist in no time. Mabye something like that might work for you unless you think a change in practice would be better.
Being kind to your self can be a hard road but a step at time will beat it. Pain Every day can be a fight I admit but itās the way life can be if truth be told just gotta make what you can outa what you have & being good to yourself is a good start.
Either way hope you the best.
