Have just returned from a week in Fuerteventura (Canary Islands). Have been to many of the other islands there but this one is the best - It is really dry and arid and for 5 of the 7 days there I was virtually pain free which is the longest pain free time since it started in November 2003! Obviously I was still on a ridiculous amount of tablets but at least I could not feel the pain. Would recommend the place to you all.
Was heavenly, could do more and wanted to do things like walking to the beach to watch the sun go down etc.
But since returning to our damp climate I have been in so much pain and have been so lathargic, more so than usual. Not sure if it is the last weeks exertions that have caused it or just the shock to my system of having that constant level of pain again. Feeling very very miserable and useless again as can't really do much and am back at work on Monday. Even wrapping myself up in a duvet does not help. Feel thoroughly fed up
