This week I went to my second physio appt for my current knee flare up. On my first visit, 3 weeks ago, it was at its worst which I was relieved about, as they were able to see how bad it really gets. I was only given one exercise and told it was going to be slow going to get it back up to strength.
This week I had my follow up appointment, and this time it was not such a bad day. Despite me trying to say several times it is still very up and down, and can sometimes still be even worse than it was on my last visit, all he kept telling me was how much it had improved since the last visit and that the exercise is working!
Do you find it difficult to get your voice heard, and how do you cope with it? We are the ones that see all these symptoms every day, yet the health professionals only seem willing to treat you on what they can see on that day. I have had the same with consultant visits as well, because on that day it seems quite under control, they refuse to increase medication etc despite trying to tell them I'm really struggling most days.
