[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.

[SE1 Discussion] Mowbray & Stanhope Buildings Redcross Way

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 17:08:55 +0000

Hi 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.

Advanced thanks.



[SE1 Discussion] Re: St Georges Buildings Borough High St

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 16:58:30 +0000

Hi Hugh

I am new to the forum and stumbled across the posts in this thread which were obviously made in 2010, so unaware whether you or anyone else here will pick this up. I lived in Mowbray buildings Hugh from 1957 - 1967 and am wondering whether we knew one another.

I recall the sweet/newspaper shop in Redcross Way known as Jim's. I also recall there being some kind of deli there which sold Italian produce, but I cant recall the name.

My memory of Mence Smith is the smell of paraffin. I too recall it being a hardware store which also sold fireworks around November 5th. My brother and I used to do 'penny for the guy' outside the Borough station and then go along to Mence Smith and without a parent. Wouldn't be permitted these days lol.

Looks like these are nearly finished. Very exciting! Hoping the resurfacing will mean less puddles!

Do we know if floodlights are going up? There was also talk of a booking system at one point, or will this still be turn up and play?



[SE1 Discussion] Re: Empty shops in Lower Marsh

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 13:43:08 +0000

I 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!

All of this may explain why the shops in that part have become so run down.

How about seeing a private physiotherapist? I can recommend you one . Maud Cioffi is good and not too expensive. Hope it helps

Hi 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 +0000

Hi. 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.



[SE1 Discussion] Re: Physiotherapist in London?

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 21:01:30 +0000

I 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.

Hi emmavaudet,

In terms of a quick result, it really depends on what you've done. If you've badly sprained your ankle, then it may need time to heal before you can walk on it. Best get a doctor to look at it. If you're worried about how long it will take to get an appointment, check out the advice on this webpage below.

http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/AboutNHSservices/Emergencyandurgentcareservices/Pages/Minorinjuriesunit.aspx

I'd call 111 for advice & they can let you know the nearest NHS minor injury unit. May as well...

Good luck!

He'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...

[quote Kory]Hi Ladywriter - goodness you have been in the wars- bless ya.
Just thought there is also a supplement (Holl & Barrett- blue bottle) again it won't be a solve - but it helps with pain - called MSM ( heavy magnesium again) takes a week to kick in and you have to shovel it down but it works for many - sending love.[/quote] Thanks I will look for it. fish oils were also suggested to ease it.

[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.

[SE1 Discussion] Small electrical device disposal

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 20:21:54 +0000

For 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.

The Southwark Council web site only shows two electrical recycling points, both in deepest, darkest Bermondsey/Rotherhithe - I've got better things to do with quarter of my weekend than head off to remote parts of town. The Lambeth council web-site shows the location of local recycling points, but not what bins are at each of them.

Does anyone know of a local (to Baylis Road area) place to dispose responsibly of small dead electrical devices?

[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!
(oh, and no connection other than being a satisfied repeat patient)[/quote] Hi, I see an osteo at my doctors on nhs but he just gets me to lay down and pushes my back into place which is extremely painful and thats it. He does not manipulate it or massage or anything. I assume its because its being done on nhs so rushed. The appointments are far apart as well due to nhs I guess. not like every week but like once or month or less. Its good to have this service but wonder if its not enough really. I guess if I was paying for it I would get longer and more treatment.

Thanks 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...
