Good morning everyone. It has been an interesting week so far. I have had hubby at the drs with diarhea last night and the dr gave him some pills one lot for the diarhea and another for the cramps. I have been overdoing this week as we have taken down all the decorations and i have been helping with the tidying up. Yesterday i was fit for nothing and felt awful all day long. I ended up in bed early last night and i settled down about 11pm i think and i slept very well until 7am this morning. Despite sleeping well i still look ill. Aww well i will have to carry on. I am going to the garden centre to get the potatoes for the allotment when the better weather gets here. .xxxxxxxxxxxxx
Compressed disc is causing me trouble this morning.. - NRAS
Take care both 🌹Dawn
I find these stretches from NHS are very simple to do, and make a big difference after a couple of weeks if you do them daily. Really helps with pain from my squashed discs.
Thanks for posting those. I have been seeing a physio at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and the exercises she has given me are variations on these.
I've been doing them for about a month and a half and they have made a big difference for me.
I guess our natural instinct is if something hurts avoid doing it - in reality stretching and exercising is the answer.
Helix i have just had a look at those exercises and i can do most of them. I can't do the one with the kneeling position as i can't use my false knee to kneel on,but they look good thank you for showing me them.xxxxx
I've just had a look at these. Trouble is if I got down on the floor like some of these I would need a block and tackle to get me up again.
Joking aside I was given similar exercises for my scoliosis and the only way I can do them is lying on the bed.
Thanks for the link. There are some differentiating ones which I will try.
I don't think 'interesting week' does your week justice. You've had a hard time recently. I do hope you are not going to be digging that allotment!
I used to get great relief by hanging from the underside of our loft ladder. Sounds odd but I just had to get high enough to 'dangle' with my feet off the floor and my weight gave me the traction I needed. I just had to remember to be careful when I came down, first time I forgot I was dangling and let go - undid all thegood work - never forgot that again!
Look after yourself - summer's on the way - or that's what I keep telling myself. 🥕🥔🌽🌰🍏🍅
No allotment digging for me for the foreseable future. I have been down herre all night again despite the good night i had Frida night. My eyes don't see to want to work properly at the moment.xxxx
