hello, thought i would follow up my previous blog about physiotherapy.
I had my 2nd app and it was every bit as disappointing as my first. I had a brief 20 min assessment that was a joke. The same physiotherapist performed the MOT as he put it, which did not seem at all thorough, more half hearted.
The result, i have been told i do not have muscular skeletol problems so there is nothing more physio can do for me. I have been sent away with 1 stretch for a very slight muscular skeletol right hip issue.
My lower back pain and sciatica is at times excrutiating, i told him i find it difficult to stand and walk initially after sitting for 15 mins, no help or advice was given to aid this. He just said there were no physical problems for the pain in my back, its just fibro pain basically .
Concluding the app i was reminded about my weight, the need to socialise and keep active. He said all the pain was fibro based and that was that. No follow up app discharged.
To top it off as the fibo support group is supported by physios , due to understaffing there are no more groups being run for a few months.( if att all) Having been added to the list for the support group 2 weeks ago this has now been pulled from under my feet as well.
Looks like there is little support in that physio dept for fibro sufferers, i left feeling very disapointed.
I am going to write to my rhumotologist who referred me, he seemed to be under the impression there was a very good physio dept supporting fibro at the hospital. Maybe he is unaware of the treatment his patients are receiving.
Been awake since 3.30 am with it all going around my head arrrrrrrrrr !!!!!!!
