Oh Dee :hug:

Try having a lovely hot bath....that usually soothes things for me, even if only temporarily....and make sure you pamper yourself while you're in there, cos that should help you feel a little better too :-)

I'm sorry Dee you're in so much pain now. I can't give you much useful advice, as I'm in pain myself. Maybe you should try another painkiller while waiting for your appointment? Big hugs :hug:

Dee: I have knee troubles when I'm up on my feet too long... I used to work in fast food (back in the college days), and when I came home from a shift and got off of my feet, inflammation would set in and the pain was so bad that I actually cried. My mother said it was because the curve in my spine caused my hips to be uneven, and that put stress on my knees somehow. The only thing to control the pain was to stop working on my feet all day. I switched to a sit-down job and felt a lot better.

Aww you're not having much luck recently are you Dee :squeeze: Have you tried putting heat on your back? It doesn't get rid of the sharp pains but it does soothe it for a bit. Microwavable heatbags are a fab invention :D

i have got one of them heat bags i think i will try that again as soon as i can rember where it is lol
thanks for the hug hun

Before my surgery, my left knee was really going to heck due to my crookedness. It used to pop from side to side a lot, and I had frequent heat and swelling.
But thankfully, it's not nearly so bad now that my back is better balanced.... It's still achey, but it doesn't pop nearly so often. Would probably be feeling even better if Blue hadn't nailed me in the leg with his big ol hooves a month and a half ago. *throttles Blue*
