Yeah didn't do much for me the last time though considering investigating it again to see if maybe different types of acupuncture may be able to work on some of the most sensitive areas. Need to go see my lovely masseuse next week and get her to loosen up some of the muscles again
Now that this injection has been tried and hasn't worked the first time, I'm going to do some more reading and see what other options might be available along that line.
And to add to it I seem to be coming down with the cold/sore throat my dads been harbouring all week! My throat feels like sandpaper and inflamed and my sinuses hurt
Ah well got to count my blessings- got a roof over my head, plenty of food to eat, clothes, clean water, heating and money to get by. I'm doing a lot better than millions; in fact billions in the world tonight. And despite my current pain and problems I thank God that I have all that and can get healthcare without paying for it or without having access to it at all.
Hazel - I'm not the twisted old bitch I've perhaps sometimes come across as, and I do have a lot of sympathy for you. All I can say is that it might be worthwhile looking at acupuncture again, or maybe acupressure might be better in your case because the areas are so sensititve. There are other alternatives around you could investigate as well.
Also that injection didn't work, and I'm sincerely sorry to hear that, but have you got another appointment? Maybe a higher dosage of the drug is necessary, or maybe even in one or more places? I think it's important the hospital get some feedback here.
