  • I got 12 out 15. I wish dealing with daily pain was as easy!

    Thanks for the link.

  • Hi same as me, I got 12 too

    and yes if only....... :)

  • AH, only 11 or 73%. It shattered a few myths. There was one I got right that seemed illogical. I like the one about women's pain threshold though. You'll have to do the quiz to see what I mean :P

  • 14 out 15. 93% It was the one about women`s pain that tripped me up

  • Hehehehehe :P :P :D :D

  • Ok.Ok I know :)

  • I don't know whether to be pleased or saddened that I got them all correct.

  • awww well done I was tripped up by myths :o

  • I got 1 myth and lost on another.

  • Well done either way. I'll avoid the obvious rude comment for a change :P

  • 11 / 15 for me.

  • 13 for me, it's a bit of a shame that we seem to know so much about pain :(

  • I got 12 as well.

    Thank you for this

    Take care

  • I got 80%!! I'm in shock!! Thought with my current fibro fog I'd have scored a big fat zero!! I too was shocked by the women/men pain threshold!! Just goes to show.....

    I notice there wasn't a question about men's reactions to a cold!!!!! XX

  • LOL yeah! :D

  • man-flu :-) it always amazes me - my hubby can slice himself up on the car, burn himself in the kitchen, no bother - a wee sniffle and he is felled like goliath ;-)

  • it's amazing isn't it ;)

  • Didn't you know? Men have a chromosome women don't. Flu goes for this chromosome and destroys it. Therefore flu barely touches women. It nearly kills men. What's not to understand? Simples x x

  • You're a badger not a meercat, how does it affect you now? ;) :D ;)

  • Just a crazy mixed up kid, I guess - oh no that's a goat - well I am Capricorn Hehehehe :P

  • I keep missing good threads on here.

    Thanks for this.

    The one that tripped me was exercise. When I read the answer made sense. But why do all those exercises I do from physio ramp all aches up then. I might be able to turn my head a fraction more to the left now but oh the torment continues.

    Off for a jog to put theory to test now.

    I was quite hearten to think all my research into pain over the years had stuck though.

  • A jog? crikey :)

    I understand though Nedd the whole thing contradicts itself, I start back at hydrotherapy on wednesday and I'm not hopeful. My first set of sessions floored me each week for 4-5 days and then it was time for the next session :o

    On top of that it aggravated my hypermobility and everything kept going snap, crackle and pop :o The pain was unreal neither the meds or pain gel were touching the sides :(

    So I ask, was that whole experience good for me? and now I get to do it all over again :o before going anywhere near physical ground physio so will I ever escape the circle of distress towards improvement?

    Enjoy your jog............... hmph so envious I'm boinging off for coffee :D

    Healing fluffies for you Nedd

  • I have Chronic Pain so by its very definition I reckon physiotherapy will aggravate pain levels. Went though the mill with them before I discovered the Pain Management course. They recommend doing a stretch until you feel it and THEN pulling back 20 percent. It was a revelation. It gave me permission to take a slow but sure approach and I have built up my stamina over 2 years. Having said that though it did bugger all for the pain. I have now learnt the triggers that flip the body beautiful into going bonkers shrilling with into a flare up.

    I love your "circle of distress toward improvement". Here's hoping that you do indeed escape.

    Slow but sure it's your body not theirs.

    Sh listen to it.

    Good Luck

  • Aha! I keep trying to tell them that............. but they won't listen LOLOL

    I know my body really well so it bugs me when medical professionals dismiss my thoughts on things Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Hey Ho!! onward and upward................ boing! LOL

    I enjoyed pain management but I threw myself into to it because it felt like I had to prove something :o

    Always the same with chronic pain conditions......... go for counselling................ go for physio................ What you're still not convinced..................... keep taking the pain pills................... go for counselling................ go for physio....................... Oh! come on still not convinced........................... more counselling.............. go for physio........... ooh! go for x-rays, no.............. go for scans oh! you can't have them there's nothing to suggest you need one!! ........................ go for counselling ............... go for physio................ keep taking the pain pills................... ooh! Neurology, no MS it orthopaedic problem- no its not they referred me -won't have me back.................... 2nd opinion................... no notes can't give you proper assessment .................. notes never arrived................... mental breakdown................ more counselling...................more counselling >>>>>>>>>>

    This goes on forever :D :p :D

    I believed that once I had a diagnosis things would become easier for me........... it didn't, its just the same 'not - so' merry go round

    Sorry Nedd for the mickey taking rant of part of my medical history LOL

    Better send you some calming fluffies after that, they ooze lavender

  • Whaaaaaaa!! Brilliant!!! You've got it absolutely right zeb!! XXX

  • Thanks sue :) that was 7yrs ago and it never stopped with the exception of the fact my GP and mental health support were fantastic, the problem was everyone else :(

  • i got 11 right...quick ? do any of you suffer with stiff feet on the soles, toes & ankles? just that on the next page a boots healthchecker site apart from fibro the feet part came out as rheumatoid arthritis, i do have osteo in my knees but since i was told this 18mths ago they have become bumpy on the inside sides is this right for fibro does anyone know? x p.s. & on my shin x

  • Hi Bluebell :)

    Have you discussed this with your GP?

    ..............my suggestion would be to ask for a referral to see a podiatrist about your feet. I have an appointment soon to see one.

    Sending soft fluffie pillows to put your feet on :)
