  • Sorry, this is not something I've heard of before, hoping someone else may be able to help you.

    I'm guessing you've already brought it up with your doctors.

    All the best.

  • Yes, actually I got it for the first time this year two weeks before Xmas. It hurt so bad to breath I went to the ER but they couldn't do anything. My primary care physician diagnosed it and gave me a two week prescription of a very strong anti inflammatory to take which helped right away.

  • It's really sore I've got physio tomorrow I don't no if I can stand him touching me!! Glad you got better

  • You should definitely ask your Physician if he can prescribe you that medication and maybe ask for a Physical Therapy referral. Mine referred me and I went twice a week for a month and it has made a huge difference.

  • Thanks I say the physio today so he's going to be seeing a lot of me
