What I have learned over the last 20 weeks.
There are several Viral infections going about.
Some invade muscles and some bones.
I now know mine invaded both.
Paracetomol capsules are a moderate pain killer.
Co-codomol is stronger but causes chronic constipation
in some people. Purgative medicines can be taken, its
just a matter of patient choice.
Ibuprofen and Piroxicam gel are anti-inflamatory drugs
and cancel each other out if used together.
I was given both these drugs which was a waste of time
taking them, for 18 weeks.
The Piroxicam does not stop the muscles tightening up round an infected bone.
Therefore, if you easily pick up infections, its best to keep away from people.
Keep plenty of food in the house.
Save some money because Osteopaths can treat this
trouble more successfully than GPs and Nurse Practitioners. I have now had X-ray and Blood Tests.
I am lucky we have a Dr. of Osteopathy at Oundle 15 miles from here. He is treating me now.
He said the muscles round the base of my spine have tightened up to protect the infected bone so the Piroxicam did not prevent this.
He worked hard and freed up all these muscles, so that
new blood went into them.
Will continue treating me. £40 for half an hour is worth
Remember this if it happens to you. We live and learn.
