Subject: fall

hi to those who were on last summer well know i fell and used my arm to stop my head hitting the corner of the wall. well my neck has not settled i left it till this week as oh had physio on his and was in great pain lol. well went for physio on wed was much better then but yesterday was so painfull (back to when i first fell) down arm into hand. today feeling little better but know as day goes on will get worse you would think with all meds on including pain ones it would not be this bad lol. who has had physio on neck and when did some improvement start pain lessening ?????. feel for all those who have arther in there necks. also got told off from not telling rhummy about it lol but as was from fall did not bother he will think i am a hyprocondriack (sorry can not spell)

Hi Valh. My Mum was diagnosed with cervical spondy[something?] years ago and she had the physio come to her house to do the neck treatment but she hated it and said it didn't help. I get creaks and pain in my neck but take Amytriptyline for Fibromyalgia and it has a positive effect on my neck , which is apparently a well known side effect. It's horrible when your neck hurts though and with me it always started a Migraine off I also go very dizzy when I look up. Had a neck Xray last time I went to Rhumies but no results yet. Hope you get some relief !!

Yeah Val it's my left leg thats weak with arthur in the ankle I have to wear an Orthotic ankle boot [ very sxy not!! ] and the inner thigh muscle is wasted. On the plus side since having the systemic steroid injection last week the swelling seems to be going down and not as painful yeh !! Hope it's not just a coincidence. Wheat bags - yeah I've got 4 of them !! They are a god send.

Valh just a word a warning about the wheat bags. Last night I warmed mine up in the microwave [ which I've done many, many times before ] when I could smell burning. Opened the microwave and smoke was coming from the wheat bag through a burnt hole with bits of wheat popping out all over the place !! Panic panic I just threw the wheat bag outside thinking it was going to explode or something [ I'm a right wuss ] . I couldn't understand why this had happened and it made a right stink in the kitchen. It FINALLY dawned on me that someone had switched the turntable off for the microwave. So watch out for that one - luckily I was in the kitchen at the time !!
