Update on relieving my leg pain

Hi all,

Have had a terrible day at work and has caused me a lot of stress making my legs ache and throb beyond management. Have popped to the chemist and they have given be co-codomal, does anyone know if this helps?

I am also book in for physio and to see an osteopath next week so have my fingers crossed as have heard this helps :)

Hope everyone is having the best start to the year as possible.

The Codamol is a very good pain drug. It is equal to any codine pain killer. Good luck and G-D Bless Shalom

Hello, I dont know about the leg pain, but you can find my 28 year old daughter, Rosie S' Story, via the link on the forum stories from the home page which deals with common symptoms of post VM.

We found that cranial massage worked wonders for her. Her job is working with horses on pretty much a daily basis and is very physically demanding.

It is rare for a story to be so positive and we have tried to let people know that this amazing complementary therapy worked for her. It helps release the spinal fluid which VM leaves a blockage for. Rosie is pretty much cured after around 10 sessions coupled with actupuncture, although found awesome relief after only one appointment. She is now free of all pain killers and antidepressants and feels right back to her old self.

We can only let you know what worked for her. It's not for all, but has now given amazing relief for many. It seems the success could be to do with the skill of the cranial osteopath you use. So it is important to find out the osteopaths credentials and experience in this specialised field particularly dealing with VM sufferers, if you can. (Not all osteopaths realise that this helps VM sufferers, it is often carried out on young babies with birthing problems). You need an osteopath and not a therapist who mearly has some training in cranial massage.

If you find you are getting the violent headaches and feeling lethargic and depressed after a few weeks, give this complementary therapy a go, it really could be worth it and save you being on prescribed drugs, along with months, years, of unnecessary suffering.

Kind wishes and best of luck
