Have you tried a TENS machine? I find it helps with the nerve pain in my arms when my neck is bad.

Sounds interesting Grim, I have googled, and it appears there are several models, if it is the one with self adhesive pads, are these pads replaceable? What model do you have? I am open to all pain relief remedies, if anyone else likes to offer suggestions. In the meantime I am still waiting for the doctor's return phone call, I won't hold my breath.

I have and use this one...

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The pads last quite a while and they are cheap enough to replace. And it's rechargeable. They've come a long way since the early models with the dials which use a 9v battery. (Which I still have). They do work, they are also good for massaging aching or tired muscles too.

Mine''s an old one with dials but when the pain's bad it does help. I really hope it works for you as I wouldn't wish chronic pain on anyone.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Got a letter from the NHS saying I am eligible for my Covid seasonal booster, went to their link and answered all their questions and at the end it said it wasn't yet available to me but would be in Autumn 2022!

I love the way VM decided I no longer need a landline.I now have to try and remember who to contact that it's a defunct no and which mobile to ring instead.

Could be that it was the weekend before Rosh Hashanah, but the queue was out of the door at T3, plus you have pre check in security questioning & passport checks, then bag drop, then another five security checkpoints before getting to your gate.... then your light is normally delayed...

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Have water on the kitchen floor. Plumber shows it's not mains. What we think is that the soakaway is clogged up so rainwater isn't draining away so it's soaking into wall then coming up through the floor. House insurer contacted referred to drainage company.
We think the soakaway could be other side of shed and decking. Hope the "<beep>" pay.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

A bit sad, a building I used to work in looks like it's going to be beyond saving after catching fire earlier tonight. A listed building that used to be the City Of Leeds Girls School before it became a council office and was full of original features.

There a couple of movie channels that started showing Christmas films about a month ago if my memory serves me correct.
