Morning everyone on this wet Sunday


Well i can tell you it is not a good day for me,my back and neck both hurt like hell and i have had my hands in a sink of epsom salt and lavender wit hot water. I couuld barely hold the spoon this morning to eat my ceral at breakfast. There were tears at breakfast as well.

Tomorrow i will be ringing the pain clinic to see if they can get me another infusion or if there is something else that can be done to help ease the even if it isn't gone altogether as long as it is easier than it is now.xxxxx

Will do

Hi Sylvi, the good old Epsom salts. Have you tried the salts in a bath? May give you a bit relief. Rubbish weather and a rubbish day to be suffering pain! Everywhere is closed!

Sending love your way xx

Yes i do use them in the bath,but at the moment i can't bath because i have pins in my toes on my left foot.xxxx

Shalf in reply to sylvi

It's days like this you want to Screeeem!! Maybe a hot water bottle?xx

sylvi in reply to Shalf

Ihave one that goes round my neck and it is in use this morning,xxx


Aw Sylvi that’s sad, have you tried little microwave bean bags, microwave or freezer, for hands, hope you’re feeling better soon x

Sounds miserable, have you got a wax bath for your hands as that can be very soothing.

Find yourself a nice spot on the sofa, or recliner if you have one, & rest up Sylvia. Hopefully the pain clinic will be forthcoming with something for you tomorrow.

Do you have an electric heat pad to ease your back & neck a little? I've been down to Lidl this morning to replace mine that gave up the ghost last week, good timing!

Hugs being sent your way. x
