Hi – well, another nice day today and a nice week to look forward to if the forecasts are right. I’ve had a really lazy day today after quite a good walk this morning which seemed to exhaust me, but the nerve pain has settled down again now – thank goodness.
I’ve been surfing the net (just by way of a change )and after leaving a message on the american http://www.healthboards.com I received a reply from someone who has been through some very similar operations to me so it pays to surf as its much easier moaning to someone in another country instead of boring the family to death!!!of course the other one which I use a lot is the UK one which is http://www.painsupport.co.uk which I have mentioned before has an excellent discussion forum.
I don’t know if your like me but the more you read about your problems the easier it gets to understand and the support from other sufferers stops you from feeling alone. I’ve also benefitted from pain relief treatments before and came across one that I have not seen before called “Electronic Healing” http://www.electronichealing.co.uk – The Far-Infrared Mineral Therapy lamp is an FDA approved healing lamp which it says is a highly effective pain relief device, with no harmful side effects. Natural, safe, recommended for the relief of muscular pain, sore muscles, arthritis, bursitis, backache, tennis elbow and joint pain. It’s quite expensive at £175 but if it helps its worth every penny and I just wondered if anyone else had tried this for pain relief?
I do find heat pads and hot water bottles very soothing but you feel that heat and I just wondered how a lamp would work? Anyway, maybe I will hear from someone about this. I’ll be back again soon and thanks again to all who have sent me lots of different ideas to help with my back pain via this blog, I do appreciate it.
