I have tried very hard to see the value of the pain management teams..but the push is for medication..In 6 months..having racked up much debt as a result..my daughters attendance at school has gone up by 20% from 60% to 84%..there are problems still with fatigue and pain..and she does sleep alot..so still working on the fatigue..however having invested in alternative methods,I find GPs and NHS where I am uninterested..Not sure if this is due to benefits they receive from drug companies or sheer refusal too consider a joint approach and working with alternative practioners..
Osteopathy has helped tremendously and a weekly massage. Dont get me wrong..she still has pain and fatigue and moodiness.and if it got to a point where she felt she wanted drugs she could have them...but why on earth does the health service not want to relook at its approach to treatment...why is it in some cities doctors are steadfast against holistic treatment..the worst is I am seen as an over worried mother..who uses dubious methods. Indeed sometimes I think..they think I am the problem. Well anyway..we shouldnt be medicating children if we dont have to..
