    David has had several sesions with the CPN and now on stronger anti depressants. Here's keeping fingers crossed.

  • Hi Pat!

    I hope the change in his meds helps. He's definitely doing well in terms of exercise, etc. so getting the drugs right should hopefully sort some of the trouble he's having.

    Thank you for the vote of confidence! This is a new study that's just starting, so hopefully we'll get some interest.

  • shame it's not england

  • I have osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. I may be interested in helping with this study but I would like to know more about it before I commit to it.

  • An x-ray I had shows osteoarthritis in my shoulders,particularly the left one.I'm not crippled with it but have pain when doing very limited amounts of physical movements.However, it's all about priorities and I'm much more concerned with my left foot often feeling like lead when on my feet. Having had a transient ischemic attack (including the above feeling) 9 months ago, for which I take Clopidogrel to thin the blood, I'm much more worried as to the possibility of a further TIA (mild stroke or worse). As I say ,life's all about priorities.Best of luck

  • Hi Sargrith,

    Thank you for your comment. I do hope that you don't have any more TIAs and that you find a good way to manage the pain in your shoulders.

    Good luck to you!
