Allways trying to improve
- Dec 27, 2013
It's not I dont want pain killers its I dont want pain killers and sent away .I want to be diagnosed with what I have then if I need pain killers because there is no treatment then I will take them when needed .Your story is very interesting as I did self defence classes many years ago and was thrown and twisted in every joint .Maybe a link there .I wish you well and hope you recover.. I think a lot of my problems are tendonitis but my bones and muscles hurt too especially yesterday and today ..just ordered an exercise bike as suggested in another post to strengthen knees and was thinking maybe swimming might helpThis is me for the last few months, certainly no fishing. I have been told everything from cancer through arthritis and a slipped disc to tendonitis. CBD and similar is fine, I didn't bother, but get checked out properly. An x-ray ruled out arthritis for me, waiting on an MRI currently but my physio now thinks patellar tendonitis and some thigh muscle / disc damage. An MRI may or may not pick that out. Physio works if they know what to treat, mine now seems to be improving, my knee had stayed painful despite a super high dose of gabapentin although that has at least sorted back pain for the moment (and it only takes a few drinks now to see me off).
I would say that anyone who says no to painkillers needs their head looked at as well as the rest. Quality of life is massively improved, just don't mistake less pain for healed as you can aggravate damage - you'll know when you're sorted. This is a common issue with cortisone injections which are now viewed as common causes of repeat or chronic damage.
