Doctor in the house?

Stupid handbrake used to be so crap it wouldn't hold the car. Now it's tightened up nicely, but still have to drag it up. My best friend suggested i sue Rover :roll:

I got sent home from work because i couldn't do FA. Trying to keep moving, a colleague gave me some Voltarol Rapid, which means i can now move my leg!

Nutty_bag, isn't it weird how the daftest things cause such trouble? And the sillier the cause of injury, the less sympathy you get! Boo!

CWNG, your comment vaguely reminds me of some really terrible porn a friend showed me on his phone. It was a woman, er, straddling a gear stick. Absolutely bizarre.

yeah absolutely!!
That was varnish for doing my bathroom door with, not nail varnish as some bright spark mentioned (thank you Golden Rivet, i was young and needed the money) :lol: I was off work for 2 months and had intensive sessions with the osteopath. when i returned my colleagues hadn't even realised i had been off sick. Thats the ambulance (i couldn't give a toss) service for you!! :roll: As i said snappers me old martial arts mogul, it isn't cheap but a few sessions with the said individuals may iron out some problems as hurting yourself putting your handbrake on was just the end result of wear and tear on your body.
N.B

P.S Sure you weren't dogging?? if so my mobile number for all vids is 0898...... :lol:

So are Osteopaths really good then? I always have tight muscles in my back and wonder if this has some bearing on the general weakness that has happened lately. I think i'm gonna invest in a back massage at some place though.

Two months off work!! That's awful, you must have been in some serious pain.

Yeah i was in rather alot of pain. The injury was muscular not skeletal and radiated into my left buttock causing no end of mirth amoungst loved ones!! The G.P gave me Co-dydramol (Or Co-dy-dry-bum) as i've nicknamed it and diclafenac which is bloody awful stuff, rots your guts which i stopped taking. As i said, do yourself a favour and get the local telephone directory and book an appointment with a local (reputable) osteopath today. Thay have a national governing body which they should display in the phone book or at their premises. If you have tight muscles in your back anyway through bouncing heads off tables as you've commented on in the past then they with probably be a factor as to why you have this injury. As i said a session isn't cheap but it's better than getting a bottle of brufen and told to f@ck off until your well as if i'm correct your an active person who wont like sitting on their botty doing nothing. Let me know how you get on.

I'm taking diclofenac right now (naughty naughty, not prescribed to me), but i'm sure i'll only need it for a few days.

So basically, it'd be a good idea to see someone even when i'm not in such pain, as a sort of preventative measure? Obviously i am waiting to join Raleigh and certainly don't want anything like this ruining my time. Although doing exercise never hurts more that having achey muscles, i don't want to go with a weakness that could get aggravated.

Sounds like you had a pretty rough time. Had any problems since?

If you keep shaking your lady willy like you do, it's no wonder you're in pain!! :lol:

Diclofenac sodiumIndications: pain and inflammation in rheumatic disease and other musculoskeletal disorders; acute gout, post op pain
contra-indications: all NSAIDS are associated with serious gastro-intestinal toxicity; the risk is higher in the elderly. B.N.F Sept 2004 (being a medical anorak again!!)
Hello again! thought i would put in a bit of information RE diclofenac for you to digest. Its bad shit and as i said it rots your guts!! Anyway back to the point. Yes it wouldn't hurt for you to go and see the said individuals as they can assess whether you have any underlining problems that you can pre-empt before going to Raleigh!! Nobody within the R.N has to know that you have been and they generally give you some exercises for you to do to strengthen the affected area. Yes i did have a pretty rough time of it, unfortunately it's a combination of my age (34) and my job picking up fat bastards, as well as the wear and tear of all the Phys i did (and still do) in the R.M etc!! I haven't had any problems since as he gave me some specific exercises that worked the affected muscle groups. I'm now doing 6 milers at a comfortable pace with no major problems other than the odd twinge!!
 
That's encouraging to know, that it does get better. I had a look for some osteopaths but i can't face the drive even if they could see me any time soon.
I will definitely consider it though, money's not really an issue. I don't have much of it, but if you can't attempt to buy health, what good is it? Thanks for all your help, nice to be taken seriously!

No problem!!
I spent a bloody fortune on getting mine fixed but when you injure yourself your willing to pay anything!! I appreciate your in pain but try and get yourself an appointment asap as although the osteopath will cause you further pain, it will be best to start your treatment asap. Are you near Droitwich as there is an excellent one there (01905-772458) failing that, obviously get yourself to one nearer to you!!
P.S take the advice RE Diclofenac.
N.B
 
I used to get really appalling headaches which would go on for up to four weeks, went to a chiropractor and it turned out I'd had whiplash for seventeen bloody years. It'll never be right now but the pain is only a fraction of what it was. Money well invested. :!:
