I have my laptop working on the house internet now so much easier to type.
I have only just seen the response to my post, thanks everyone.

You will of course be glad to know the chiropractor Voodoo has started to work , this morning I could walk without a stick
Wolfgang is not only a chiropractor he is a heilpraktiker which means he uses voodoo
Hot glasses down my back, acupuncture, injecting with salt water (saline I think its called, ? yes) a special wheel running up and down the back and oil rubbed in, not sure, but think he said clove or clover oil.
Yesterday he just did the glasses and acupuncture and because of where the pain was he sent me to the specialist, which of course would normally take weeks to get an appointment.
Today he did the whole lot and then tried the back to back spine crack, but because he found it to stiff (my back ) he left that until Monday when I will go again.
It isnt cheap, but I know his work from 17 years ago when he got me mobile and anyone here at the stables that has trouble goes to him straight away, he treated Prince Charles when he injured his back playing polo against his team many years ago.
I will be staying here for a while longer, Christel is going on holiday for a week so to repay all their kindness I volunteered to stay and help Birgits Mum in the kitchen, probably do a bit of English cooking which they always enjoy.
Someone said next week I will be running, I said that will be a miracle because I havent been able to run for years.

To be continued tomorrow when I hope to report walking is even easier than today. Temperature 30.5C to buddy hot to be outside, nice and cool in their kitchen where I am now.

Glad you are in good spirits, Jan. Acupuncture is amazing! Having seen it work on dogs I was a believer anyway but the physio worked wonders using it on my sciatica a few years ago. I then went to Clinical Pilates which, again, was wonderful at building up the support structure around the spine and hips etc. People do say, who have done both, that Clinical Pilates is much more effective than the recreational type. I highly recommend it to keep the dreaded seizing up of the old bones.

Now I need to answer your questions

Pat
As I said Wolfgang is not only a chiropodist, he looks at the whole body not just the bones.
Birgit is a practicing physiotherapist and she has also been to him for help.
Exercises are given to strengthen muscles that have been ignored, this is not a muscle problem.
Dave
Today I bought a special cushion that goes between the knees when laying on one side, I have felt this sleeping position uncomfortable, but this afternoon had a nice hours sleep using it. Sitting is fine until I get up then I need a few minutes to get going again.
Motley wouldnt dream of walking with anyone else only on a lead, I can play with him in the garden here and walk him far enough for the essentials, when I am in the van he is fee to wander, meet other dogs and he is just getting used to other people, but of course he is a real Mummys boy and doesnt go far, but its interesting for him.
Geoff
He doesnt report to my GP, but what could be better that connecting with the orthopedic surgeon who has authorized the MRT the report sent to hi and he contacts Wolfgang, the queen couldnt be treated better.
Sandra
Maybe your next holiday should be taken near Hanover, he speaks excellent English and has a wicked sense of humour just like me and we had a good laugh together today. Something he said to me, "Im glad to hear you havent lost your sense of humour, it means you are surviving this dreadful time." referring of course to Hans.

Does that special cushion have a name Jan? I've had a problem with my hip recently and sleeping on my side causes pain (and since I can't sleep on my back I'm snookered). I did try a cushion but it didn't help much, if at all.

Im sorry Jean I put the packing in the paper bin and it has already been taken away, but It will probably have a different name for you.
Have a look on Amazon for knee support cushion or pillow.

Not much improvement today, Im a bit stiff so take many short walks.
I have been invited to an English event tomorrow, but they are not sure if dogs will be allowed so as I am not prepared to leave my little man hear with the family for what will probably be more than 5 hours I had to refuse. He is gradually getting used to me leaving him here, but over 5 hours on Thursday was a bit too long.

Im pleased that you are improving Jan

The stiffness and pain you describe I have in all my joints now

Although some joints are worse than others at different times, at present my wrists are bad which is awkward in sitting down and standing up and lifting anything

When I stand I have to take time to centre myself and balance before I attempt to walk, how accurate was my description that Im slowly turning to stone

Im hoping that as Ive restarted immunosuppressant that the inflammation will settle and that rheumatology will reopen

I have tried acupuncture in the past , including cups with varying degrees of success in the early stages

Now I have to learn to live with it

I hope I wont have to live with it, unfortunately the pain and stiffness have returned, I go again on Monday when I-hope he will do a bit of manipulation, the next thing is an MRT scam on Thursday at 7.15am 😫

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifes savings. Guess what? He robbed us of 750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.
