    Hello Chezer.
    Sorry to hear you are suffering with such pain.  Have you been referred by your G.P. for an X-ray or MRI Scan to determine exactly what your condition is?  
    Could your G.P. refer you for physiotherapy?  Maybe your G.P. can prescribe you a medication that would be more effective for you? 
    Wish you better.
    Debbie :)

    Hi @chezer2401

    “That’s no probs at all”

    Please mention the Pain Clinic to your GP if you can.

    You should find Pain Clinics in your main Hospitals.

    Please let me know how next week goes with your physio if you don’t mind ??

    If you need further help/support please let me know.

    Thanks.
