Went to docs 3 months ago complaining of painful hip. I said it was not like my other FM pains. I was told to carry on with painkillers and use Ibuleve Gel and if no better go back in 2 weeks with a view to having painkilling injection in the joint. Went back and told it was either FM or Bursitis and to carry on with painkillers and gel for another month then, if no better, return for a painkilling injection. Went today and was told I have to have Physiotherapy as less invasive than an injection. Then told there is a delay for Physiotherapy and could have to wait up to a year !!! In the meantime I still have the painful hip that stops me from rising from a chair unaided and wakes me in the night.
Unfortunately, and because I was becoming rather emotional by now, I did not fight my corner.
I could think of lots that I should have said once I got home.
Is that what it is going to be like now - everything is down to FM.
