Mon, 20 Feb 2017 17:58:06 +0000[quote connie]In my case, I found walking really helped. I tried to do it during my lunch break and it was much easier to sit at the office in the afternoon. After losing some weight, the pain then disappeared. Even 5-10 pounds make a huge difference.[/quote] This is what I have started to do, to try and drop weight to help it. I am a little over weight for my height according to the bmi charts. I am short as well which does not help. I do walking to and can manage a bit more now.

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 17:08:55 +0000Hi I am new to the forum and wondering whether any members lived in Mowbray or Stanhope Buildings in Redcross Way between 1957-1967? If so would appreciate hearing from you.
Mon, 20 Feb 2017 16:58:30 +0000Hi Hugh
Mon, 20 Feb 2017 16:40:19 +0000Looks like these are nearly finished. Very exciting! Hoping the resurfacing will mean less puddles!
Mon, 20 Feb 2017 13:43:08 +0000I was in SDV jewellers on Friday 17th. They're definitely closing as mentioned before but apparently between Greggs and Boots a hotel has been proposed. Plans apparently have been submitted - not that another hotel is needed in the Waterloo area!
Mon, 20 Feb 2017 12:00:23 +0000Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:49:17 +0000How about seeing a private physiotherapist? I can recommend you one . Maud Cioffi is good and not too expensive. Hope it helps
Sun, 19 Feb 2017 23:23:55 +0000Hi LW- as I understand it fish oil helps with mobility of joints but the things I mentioned Epsom Salts/MSM are to aid pain - sending you love
Sun, 19 Feb 2017 22:04:06 +0000Hi. I agree with Doodlebug1. Haven't used these guys in a while (sold my car) but they were my regular cleaners. Always did a good job. If you thought they'd missed a bit, I think they'd be happy to fix it.
Sun, 19 Feb 2017 21:01:30 +0000I agree with above. Get to minor injuries. The one at Guys is great. You might have a fracture. Minor injuries will x-ray. At least then it can be ruled out. You don't want physio on a fracture. After it's healed you do. At least that's my understanding dealing with my current fracture.
Sun, 19 Feb 2017 20:40:56 +0000Hi emmavaudet,
Sun, 19 Feb 2017 19:06:32 +0000He's in there, i guess that's his life now, I don't think the shop is open but he sits in there - watching the world go by? Gave me a friendly wave from the back of the shop...

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 18:25:10 +0000[quote Zoe]Are you keeping up the exercises after the class? I know they are tiresome but it really does work. Once I discovered I had stomach muscles under all the fat I have focussed on trying to keep them strengthened, which is no easy feat. My physio also recommended swimming, which I find difficult to do locally but it does help. I don't think there is one answer, it's lots of little things.[/quote] Hi, last year when my back went on me again, I started up swimming, then when it eased I got tendinitus in both arms, physio said I should not continue with the swimming until tendinitus eases and not use the gym either, so I stopped doing both as advised. Then along with the tendon pains in both arms my back pain returned again, so have both now. I cant win whatever I do, swimming is no good for the arm pains tendons but good for back pain, cant use gym while tendons weak and have to be careful with it on my back as well. You asked did I keep up the physio exercises, I did for a while but was advised to ease them off when got tendon pains in arms. Whats good for one thing is no good for another. I started up Pilates before but could not even attempt it now. I know I need to drop some weight but exercise is limited currently. But am gradually managing to walk a bit further now then I could before. At least walking is safe for arms and legs and back.

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 20:21:54 +0000For a few years, there's been a collection bin for small electrical devices at the Baylis Road local recycling point. Very useful. I went there today to try to dump something to find that it's gone.

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 18:32:08 +0000[quote curatrix]SO sorry for your suffering! I have had treatment for other issues (hip pain, neck and shoulder pain) at the British School of Osteopathy on Southwark Bridge Road, and can recommend you might contact them. The fees are very reasonable; assessment and treatment done by students supervised by a tutor. It is all very professional, and the practitioners take care to really listen to the patient. In my case a few treatments resolved the issues, and I was reassured by the underlying principle of identifying and correcting the root of the pain rather than just treating the symptoms. Last time I was there I think I saw fliers for a chronic pain management course, so perhaps this could be helpful? Good luck!
Sat, 18 Feb 2017 18:20:03 +0000Thanks for replies, I have had twice the back pain classes at Guys hospital on the six weeks course, I found it helpful but it does not solve or rid the problem just brings it down for a while until the next time it starts up again. I started recently physio on my arms as have tendinitis and tennis elbow on both arms which started up late last year which can also be painful, and then my back pain started up recently where literally could not move. Trying to support myself with my painful arms as well when getting up. My late father suffered years with same problem so probably inherited. I will look up the treatment options given thanks for advice. anyone else welcome to comment please do...
Sat, 18 Feb 2017 16:03:48 +0000That's good, he's a hard working man, always had a nice friendly smile for my Mum pushing her down tbr.in her wheelchair. Then a friendly smile for me sitting a wheelchair! He must have been there with his wife for almost 40 years.
