  • Good luck at the pain clinic scunny278, and I genuinely hope that you can get something stronger for the pain.

  • Thank you Author yes I cant manage any longer on paracetamol and am going on holiday with my daughter and two of my grandchildren in april so would like to sort of be sorted before then love and bubbles scunny 278 xx

  • this great the brown envelope came to me the other day as my condition is far worse im so worried but its the way they treat us it awful ,bad experiences last ,we shouldn't be afraid we are ill nobody has a magic cure and I wish my health more than anything instead we have to visualise, having a moan, trying to stay calm as it aggravates the condition x well done you for being open on this.x
