I thought if you ignored then you couldn't view?

You can reverse it anytime you like Jean

I think

Of course Iíd never give anyone the satisfaction of ignoring them

You can ignore posts even if you read them , you just doní t respond

Now isnít that a strange concept in 2019 ?

You can read and ignore and you donít need to let others know that you are ignoring anyone

Unless of course..........

You are right Barry, no good falling out with friends

But there are friends and there are acquaintances

The secret is knowing the difference

As I suffer from calcium crystal disease, which includes acute crystal arthritis and acute calcific tendinitis I know exactly how painful your gout flare ups are

Apparently changes in cartilage due osteoarthritis encourage the calcium crystal to form in the joints

I was hoping that fasting would have reversed it somewhat but unfortunately it didnít

Pain I suppose reading about the pain of others is somewhat of a misery loves company or a relief to know that one is not alone. I have suffered from arthritis in an ankle from an old injury for 30 years or so ago. Then a few years ago stenosis in the spine started up causing finally my legs to get more or less paralyzed after walking around a bit. That also came with lots of back pain. But the good news was that the leg numbness covered up the ankle pain. 7 weeks ago I had a laminectomy so now I can use my legs again, but I have lots of back and side pain that varies from time to time. I am hoping it will get better with time. And the ankle pain is back. I have nothing but sympathy for those of you who suffer with constant pain. it really does tend to take the life out of us.

If I can give a few suggestions. Probably nothing new but maybe they bear repeating. Get a stationary bike or similar to use at home. Do some easy weight training to build back muscle. Swim, or just walk if you can, stretch. Take a class there are lots of them around for us older people. Push yourself to do the things you know you should do but don't, eat right lose weight. Extra weight puts more strain on the joints. Some things can't be fixed and we just have to suffer them. My back was a bit different, everyone told me so many things to try for my back problem. But is was a structural problem that no amount of stretching or exercise would fix. So the surgery was the only answer and it has worked so far. I told myself if I could walk again the pain would be bearable. I hope so. I do for the most part practice what I preach, I am the guy who got a second degree black belt in karate last November at the age of 75.

Thank God

I really was beginning to think the pain I suffer was imaginary

And as one joints inflammation resides another flares up

So flare ups can can last weeks on end

I canít take anti drugs to reduce the stiffness and inflammation even the drug to shorten the length of flare ups

Because my kidney function is poor I canít take pain relief

So itís paracetamol or nothing

Which equate to exactly the same thing

Can you please tell them from me how bad the pain is

How Iím not exaggerating the affect it has my life

Especially if you are not allowed pain relief

And I have bought an electric tricycle

Because I can no longer balance on a bike

And Iím not sure yet that I can manage a trike

My hand joints are also affected so I will struggle on cambers to pull it back

But I spent the money to at least try

All that money on an imaginary condition

One that many of you great people would deal with in your stride

And feel itís fine to belittle me

What a great forum this is

Come on Sandra, when your in a hole, time to stop digging. Draw a line under it and build some bridges instead. As a long term friend of yours and many others on here including those you have beef with I want to say this publicly as awkward as it is. I know your suffering as are others on here but all this feuding (and that is what it feels like) is really making the forum unpleasant. You are not coming across well at all. If you want to let of steam go and spout off on the Brexit Facts thread.

I doubt there's anyone on the forum who thinks you're imagining your pain Sandra - the suggestions on here as to how you might perhaps manage it better (getting help in the house, accessing pain relief, getting a stationary bike) attest to a supportive reaction.

We all know it's difficult, and depressing, but as Barry says, the feuding and falling out isn't helping anyone and is making the whole forum a less pleasant place to be.
