Chronic pain syndrome!. anyone on here got it??,also when I googled it I kept getting hits for it linked with Fibromyalgia so I e mailed the Fibromyalgia uk charity and asked them, they said that many think they are one of the same with only slight difference, I'm still confused slightly!?.
Oh and one last thing does having any of them make any difference as to how you are genrally treated by oficialdom and health professionals or is it just another problem to have to deal with. :sad:

    Hi Toni it was interesting but they could have spoken to people with RA and OA instead of just a few extremes, I did like the brain gun thing boy I'd give me left leg for a go on that thing, wow no pain for a bit is right up my street like so many on here I guess!.

    I thought of you with that woman with chronic pain.

    Totally impressed I was.

    Only just watched it this afternoon while I was ironing will go and see what the guys on here made of it.
