    Hi Leakydisc,

    Welcome to posting and yep got a few of them as well :wink:

    Haven't had that particular thing but have huge amounts of needles in the spin over the years....

    Do they hurt,,,,,,

    Well yes a bit but it depends on what is doing it and also how much you can stay relaxed......

    We do half decent pocket duties f we are needed and I really hope they will find out and be able to help you.

    Have they ever talked abut surgery? I would so like at least 2 of mine removed but they have already taken some and they seem reluctant to do the ones I want shot of .... they do sort of hurt eh? :lol:

    Good luck and please let us know how it goes. Nice to meet you. Cris x
