Hello - after first hydro treatment which I had been looking forward to and waiting for over 6 months had bad experience getting out of pool as felt cased in cement and couldn't breathe properly...felt panicky but was quickly reassured that this is often the first time experience when you have been in the pool first time. Following some water felt better and very sleepy and a little achy but knew that was to be expected! However overnight, the throbbing pain in big toe and skin on side was cracked and this wasn't the case when I went into pool and don't really have an arthritic big toe problem - my arthritic joints are both knees, the right one mainly and both hips and lower back....Have rang the GP to discuss these overnight concerns as have been unable to get to work today because of pain and no sleep.
Did anyone here have a problem with the skin irritation? I tried ringing the hosp pool dept and had to leave message....GP advised to rest and ice and if toe is still in same condition to book appt before next session.
