Hi
I have my first appointment at the pain clinic tomorrow at 8.50am. It will be an early start as it is not at my local hospital, and parking is rubbish when I get there.
I had my new physio appointment last week , and have been trying to keep up the exercises he showed me.
I have had a new ache/pain this week, -my knees have started to join in!!
Yay!! :roll:
Pocket duyies welcome as I am on my own in the morning.
Thanks x
NB

    I'm up bright and early tomorrow for university, so I will hop in your pocket before lectures. :) Hope it goes well. From what I've heard, most people find pain clinics really supportive. Good luck!

    I hope you gain something from it, NB. Mine was a total waste of time - I've been there, I do that, I've done that, I knew that, I know not to do that . . . . :wink: I'm sure the doctor felt he'd been useful. :lol: DD

    Hi NB
    Good luck today
    Mine was a very good appointment.....maybe because I went with an open mind. :wink:
    Being an arthritis care volunteer I knew a lot of it yes...but did I practice it.....sometimes :oops:
    Some things were helpful so if you get even one helpful thing.....I think its worth it

    Love

    Hi
    sorry for the delay, I had a fall at the weekend and have given both my knees quite a bash.
    The Pain Clinic appointment went ok. I saw an OT who took a long history, asked what I expected form them, etc... I got a bit emotional when she started to read back what I had told her and she said "what a lot you have had to deal with". (I can`t deal with people being nice!!)
    She is going to speak to the consultant about possible injections for my spine, she has booked me an appointment with a pharmacist to do a medication review, and another appointment with her to discuss long term pain management.
    I came out feeling a bit wierd really?? I hadn`t expected to feel so emotional about it all.
    I have my appointments next month (long waiting time :roll: )
    I had more physio this morning. He had my trying to balance on one leg, with my eyes closed!! Ha! I just fall to the side!!
    I will concentrate on keeping myself upright on 2 feet , especially after my recent fall!! :lol:

    Hi NB,

    I'm so sorry about your fall and I hope you're not in too much pain :)

    It sounds like you had a useful appointment. I think it's natural to be a bit emotional while talking about pain, but I understand feeling weird too! Good luck for the follow-up appointments and the physio.

    Best wishes,
    Phee

    Hello NB
    So sorry I missed this,my brain doesn't work like it use to
    I remember well my first pain clinic appointment and being emotional , especially when they ask how does it effect your every day life,and does it cause me to be depressed..suppose it all has to come out some time.
    I do hope they can help you ..and please keep us updated (((()))) xx
