Hi everyone, like all of you I have osteoarthritis of my hip,knees and s i joint dysfuntion.I was fobbed off for year's and told to live with getting old. Well last year I said NO I WON'T I paid £130 and saw the orthopedic surgeon privatly best thing I ever did,first new xrays then I had an injection in the s i joint,it gave a little relief but soon the pain broke through again.In the meantime my knee's became swollen and could not walk well and then I was sacked from work. FEB 08 I had more xray's and found that the knee's have deterated quickly and there is no cartledge,so in APRIL I had an arthroscopy and now need a new knee.But just walking causes so much pain in my knees,hip and back that I dont go out any more. Been refused LDA as the medical examiner say's I only have mild problem's. I just wish she had said that to my face. I feel better know nowing I'm not alone,other people live with pain as well. What Ihave found and will tell anyone don't be fobbed off with your pain you deserve better.

not sure if this has anything to do with madeleine but im firstly a homeopath and secondly suffer extreme chronic paid due to a two broken cervical vertibrae which whilst being broken severed the main artery at the back of my neck - which is why i have commented on broken necks on madeleine threads

i dont use my right arm properly but live like an non disabled person (unless of course my sometimes strange cryptic postings on here indicate an unstable mind)

so if anyone wants some alternative health care advice free to forum users please feel free to pm me

my own condition causes pins and needles in my face arms nose and seriously affects the trigeminal nerve, causes 60% hearing loss in one ear, jaw pain lack of balance and a host of othe symptoms - i find that my own mental attitude helps as well as the drugs and alternative remedies that i take

always searching for the truth and for now, for madeleine, who never got to be 4

Hello Earthspirit,please start a thread on your alternative health care here,as this part of the forum is for health issues I`m sure we`d all be gratefull for any advise you can give us.

I do agree that a attitude of positivity when dealing with cronic pain helps a lot,nerve pain is an especially hard type to treat succesfully,so can,without a good attitude become a monster.

Do hope you feel able to contribute.x~~fishie

Hello and welcome Bootsy,have been told that the operation may even make things worse,but you sure are brave,not sure what I`d do without painkillers.~~fishie

Lindy, claim again for DLA, just about everybody gets turned down the 1st time, and the 2nd, and the 3rd....!
Don't give up.

My husband broke his back in an accident and is disabled. It took me 2 years to win his benefits, yet a friend of ours who lives in a different area and has intermittent spinal problems, got a lifetime award! The Physio who came on home visits for a while told us that her son had a motor bike accident and is now quadraplegic and obviously, wheelchair-bound. He was turned down as well.
