Thank you both for your kind words - as we all know, anxiety probably makes the original problems worsen in most cases.
It's like my life is on hold...whilst I wait for the death sentence. I can't think about anything else, I haven't really been living this past month through worry aswell as the pain, just existing.
The neuro appt is on Tuesday but I have been waiting a month for it - during which my mind has been working overtime.
Will post after I have visited to see what they say....
