    ElRetardo I agree we shouldn’t go to the doctors for petty things, however the point I was referring to was this statement:
    “I don’t trust the bastards its a bit too close to religion for me”

    That sounds like a bit of a generalising attack on a group of people who mostly do a very good job.

    What I meant was I won’t let them do something to me without a bit of reserach. I mean as a kid I had fluid build up arround a tendon on my wrist, which is completely harmless so my doctor decided I should be injected with some mad chemical without telling me the side effects.

    Now (8 years alter) I get random bouts of extreme pain, spasm stylee contractions of the tendon, my hand sometimes freezes up and generally its fucked my use of my hand. It wasn’t until I went back to complain about these problems with my mum that the doctor explained that this was the price I had to pay to not have a fuckin tiny wee squidgy lump on the back of my wrist that I only got looked at as my mum thought it could be a tumour.

    So yeh enough of my ranting….what I meant was I don’t just let them do what they want to me without a bit of research. The whole religion thing was about the fact that people trust them blindly and wind up with new problems caused by the drugs they got to save them from the first problem.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    I’m not against the NHS at all –
    but my one complaint about the problem I’ve been having with my hands is I find doctors can be very narrow minded and will not treat you holistically

    They decided I had carpel tunnel – I had x2 operations –
    hands still going numb and painful –
    but instead of looking where else it could be (I’e my back) they then told me it was my elbow
    I then didnt feel listened to as how can both hands go numb when the problem (from the doctors) is only in one elbow –
    They then said they wanted to opperate again ……..

    (I do think I had carpel tunnel as those symptoms have cleared up pretty much)

    calm down a minute

    I went to a chiropractor independantly –

    and I have a trapped nerve in my neck, one leg shorter than the other (which I am now being ripped about by all my mates … ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) which is why my back is all twisted causing ppressure in my neck (god I’m really selling myself :laugh_at: )
    and will have to pay around ยฃ500 over the next few weeks / months (luckily I have savings)
    but if it saves not having to have another op / I’ll finally get a full nights sleep with out being woken up several times / less (no) pain …………. I’ll do anything……..

    sorry for my rant but this is year 5…..

    my g/f’s grandad died while in hospital due to negligence on the part of the hospital, he contrated some nasty infection due to the squalid conditions he was left in, uncleaned dressings, shit in his bed etc. He was also left in a corridor for a day cause there was no ward free. Now i admit some do the best they can, but some are just slack or are incapable of doing the job, whether thats the persons fault or the systems i dont know. My g/f’s nan is now having to go to the ombordsman (sp?) to get compensation. She said herself she feels bad about claiming compensation as it is only going to take money away from the NHS when that is obviously what they need to try and sort out the problems they have. She just wants to get answers to how it got to that state and she also wants to try and make sure the problems are addressed so that it doesnt happen to anyone else in the future. So although i understand you El for not wanting to claim i think it is important that someone or part of the organisation is held responsible to insure that stuff like that doesnt happen in the future.

    Have you ever tried acupuncture?I had a really bad back and shoulder… and at one point couldn’t even raise my arm above shoulder level.. had 3 months pysio.. nothing… had about 4 months of chiro and it would ease only right after treatment to be sore as hell again…

    last ditch effort when the pain became unbearable a few months later was acupuncture as I am terrified of needles… cant even look at when i get a blood test…

    OH MY GOD…. within a couple of treatments the pain had gone… I had mobility… I also had acupressure session at the same time.. The acupuncture was so relaxing I would usually fall asleep for the time they had to stay in… just could not help it… and a really really deep sleep also.. so much that could not drive immediately home I had to take a wee walk…

    Acupuncture will now always be my first port of call if I need fixing up. Took i think it was 6 sessions and it was like I had never been in pain!!!!

    yeah them things can sting, used to have fun spraying my mate when he worked with me.

    There are various things you can do to improve the healing on your burn El – the aloe vera leaves rubbed on directly would help you out [if the plants survived], lavender oil applied to the area [will reduce scarring /promote healing] or for the zero additives approach put the palm of the other hand over the afffected area and keep it there for 5- 10 mins 2 times a day [the area should get hot when you do this]

    I have to say I wont take antibiotics for choice either and echinacea tincture is a good way of avoiding them for me if you havent tried that yet ๐Ÿ˜‰

    the systems. the administration of the nhs is fucking diabolical. it’s not the nurses and doctors on the wards that are the problem. it’s cash-strapped and stretched to the max, yet the public complain when it’s given more money. government targets fuck things up too. i don’t know what the solution is, tbh. i don’t really understand the proposed privatisation.
