HT, by all means give the physio a good go, it may take several treatments to see some benefit. I will warn you you may feel some soreness at first. The reason is you will be moving body parts that have not been used in years. It will help loosen some of those muscles up & should help with better mobility.

I was having extreme pain & stiffness last month. The stiffness that set in was just incredible. Medications simply did not help at all, it was too far gone. So, I decided to go get a one hour massage. By 2 that afternoon I was kicking myself & asking myself what in the he$$ was I thinking pulling that stunt, lol. Let me tell you, for the next 6 days I was on a heating pad a lot. I felt like someone had taken a ball bat to me & beat me, it was awful. Once I got past the soreness I could move my neck & shoulders much better. It has been over 12 years since I have had a massage, however, back then I never was sore afterwards because I did them frequently. If this happens again, I will ask for some PT, the massage was just too hard on this old body, lol. Although the massage helped, I will not subject myself to the after affects again.

I am glad to read that you have found another dr to take care of you. I think your older dr was old school too. They tend to look at us & say arthritis is what happens as we age & that is the end of it. Well, that is true, however, when it affects our ability to function then something needs to be done.

Also, I read on another forum that you have some new gigs looming in your future. That is wonderful. It is wonderful that you will be able to reach out to others & help them & it will help you too.

Take care.

thx susie, your the best. yep other gigs comin' up. going to redo cv. i passed old doc yesterday and said hi. new doc laughed and said your on enough meds at the moment. he wants a mgt plan, good on him, more service provision for me. i rarely ask. i want continued mobility as i am not a happy turtle atm. hru doin'? keep well, and lookin' after the forums, you certainly float around, i see ya doin' a great job.

HT, I am getting around a little better, lol. I just have a difficult time walking & standing on my feet. I cannot stand up straight & have not been able to for years. As a result when I am up I get tired really fast. It upsets me some days worse than others but I get over it, lol.

I am hoping the physio helps you its certainly worth trying. HW has so few mods these days to keep these forums going. As a result there is little activity, plus other social media places are all over. Some people like chatting more than anything. I just remember back in the day when I first came here it was active. I can't imagine not ever being greeted by someone.

Take care.
