So sorry to hear that you suffering so badly from pain from your ibs. Are you still having the hypnotherapy has it done you any good at all? it's awful when you pin your hopes on trying something and it does not work, I know my fibromyalgia is the worst I have ever had it, I have an appointment for the pain management clinic on 21st March, but not holding out much hope for much improvement.
Had to wait a month for Graham's funeral which is on the 16th March, which prolonging the pain, my Son has been very good and helped with all the paperwork such a lot to do. I do miss him very much, always expect him to be in his chair when I come in the house.
My Son is insisting that I move nearer to him, and I do think it is a good idea, but the stress of moving is increasing my abxiety nd stress, will be so glad when everything has settled down and I can relax more.
Have you tried the pain management clinic for chronic pain? A lot of people seem to benefit from them, but as they say they do not help everyone, but have to try everything, wish I could go to the Fibromyalgia clinic in London and have Dr's who really understand it, most GP's do not understand it or even believe in it. And it's wait, wait, wait in the NHS.
How is your Daughter in Law getting on with Fibro? Has she found a way to manage it,
Can deal with things better when younger.
Look forward to hearing from you soon,
