Hi joed

I am so sorry to read of everything that you are suffering with and I genuinely hope that things turn a corner for you soon. Kidney stones in themselves can be painful regardless of the size? I also hope that you are not on the waiting list too long?

All my hopes and dreams for you

Hi Joanne,

Aww Bless You!!!! I totally can relate to thigh pain, all down the front of them. I describe it as acid being poured over your thighs and the burning pain that you would experience!! It drives me insane!! I also am getting the mostterrrribble torso pain, sometimes it's excruciating, I've been in bed suffering for a few days, getting up for a few hours, then back to bed:-((

Hope you are not feeling too bad today. Take care, Lizzy x


Hi joed

I have sharp pains deep in the thigh muscles, stabbing pain, it's horrid. I find massaging them with deep heat or strong ibuprofen gel helps sometimes but not always. Hope you get some relief . Take care. X


So sorry to hear that you are utterly miserable at the moment don't worry about having a good rant as it is good for the soul. For you to have flu on top of your other problems is certainly kicking a woman when she is down. I pray that when your GP reviews your case he comes up with something they have missed. I have different kind of pains in my thighs and I find in the cold or damp weather that is one part of my body that I never seem to be able to get warm. Hope you will be feeling a bit better soon.x



I used to live on Zapain and after a couple of years they started to not work so well. Now I take OxyNorm a form of morphine but the pain is to great, that and paracetamol allow me to work for a few hours a week. I'm not sure how much longer I can continue working though. Each morning feels like a whole day and night.

Hope you feel better soon
