    Hi AnnieD,

    Kevscar, who is one of our members ran a big campaign for CRPS support. If you look for ‘CRPS’ elsewhere on the forum you can see what a big effort he put into his campaign. Give it a go? Good luck of you do.

    Hi AnnieD,

    I’m pretty sure that many years ago I attended a money raising effort during a Chronic Pain Awareness week. But I don’t know if it still exists. I’ll try and find out.

    I was given traction on my hip and it really helped, but unfortunately not for long! The physio explained that it was to bring synovial fluid back into the joint. I had had an xray though.

    Hi Mouse,

    Same here, never felt any better after physio, but yesterday I decided to give it another try. I thought that yesterday’s appointment was to be referred directly to an orthopaedic man for hip surgery. But I’ve been persuaded by a really nice physio to try some muscle strengthening exercises for 3 weeks to see if it helps. I’m going to give it a go but don’t in all honesty see how it will improve ‘severe wear and tear’ of the joint, but apparently it will make the muscles stronger if I finally go for a replacement.

    So I think you can only try!

    So sorry to hear that, pbman. I’m on Butrans patches but on a much higher dose. Maybe your gp could raise the dose of the patch until you get a bit more pain relief. I do hope that you get a definite diagnosis soon. At least then you will know what you’re fighting.
