I went for my introductory appointment with the Pain Clinic yesterday.
Apparently they had to do a bit of juggling because I'm under the rheumatology umbrella and they don't seem to work together which is a bit strange.
The physio I met was really lovely and wanted us to be able to explore all aspects of pain relief including help with weight loss which would be wonderful.
There's not much else to report at this early stage but she did give me a link to their website which I felt may be useful to some of you on here. sdhct.nhs.uk/aboutus/servic... It looks pretty good to me. Use the right hand menu (with orange title) to negotiate through it.
I'd be really interested to know whether anyone's rheumatology team runs something similar within the department or do you have to get referred elsewhere?
