So if you've read any of my previous posts, you will know that I have severe lower back and nerve pain down my leg. I have had all the tests under the sun which come back inconclusive!!
Today I went to the Physio and she informed me... Much to my surprise that I didn't already know but I was on the waiting list for the pain management clinic ( I live on the Isle of Man and there's only one consultant so as you can imagine, waiting lists are high).
In the meantime, she has got me on a strict exercise plan to get to the gym 3 times a week and get on the bike for 5 mins at a time. Also I have to walk for 10 mins a day ( I am on crutches ) ,upper body weights,swimming when I can and the exercises she has given me!! I know the length of times aren't long but my pain tolerance level is pretty poor at the moment. Pain and lack of sleep being the main problems.
Just wondered how people cope with their pain when exercising gently as I have no idea how I am going to manage all this!
Thanks for reading
