Excruciating pain and almost total immobility finally forced me into the arms (pun very much intended) of a chiropractor and a physiotherapist. Five treatments (and £250) later and the pain has gone and I have regained my mobility. The cocktail of drugs that have been prescribed seem to have no effect but a combination of acupuncture, chiropractic manipulation and physiotherapy have worked - literally - wonders. Had the exact same experience in Singapore three years ago at the suggestion of my neurologist. Why wasn't this treatment suggested by the GP or Professor of Rheumatology I consulted??
