I’ve had better weeks


Well it has certainly been one of those weeks for me this week!

Firstly both my husband and I had car problems at the same time, which has been a nightmare, especially as I can't really walk at the moment (I'll come to that in a minute)
Hubby's car had to have a new catalytic something-or-other amongst other things, and I had to have a new clutch, fly wheel and something unpronouncable! Whatever it was it must have been diamond-encrusted because the price was so astronomical and I'm sure it just would have been cheaper to get a new car!

I  then went to a physio appointment because I was getting a little shooting pain in my left leg. Lo and behold, my hip is out, my pelvis is out, and one shoulder is about four inches higher than the other and I'm now hobbling around.

To top it all off, this week we had to update our holiday jabs, so all four of us went and for some reason I'm the only one who has suffered any side effects. Firstly having had a jab in each arm I could barely lift them (so with my arms flapping down by my sides and my dodgy walk I've looked like a demented penguin most of this week).

I have woken up this morning with flu-like symptoms and feel as sick as a parrot! All of which I have been assured is normal. Have any of you had bad reactions to holiday jabs? If so, how long did the problems last?

    Hi Jilly
    I have back problems and so does my hubby who is a carpenter, he had one leg longer than the other as his back was out of alignment, until he went to a chiropractor and now his suit trousers don’t need altering. Usually we find that if I have hip problems it will be that my back is out of alignment, I can certaily recommend you visit a chiropractor. Hope your well soon. Kind Regards. Caroline

    Hi, Jilly,
    really sorry to hear that your not doing well at all, but i do sympathise and empathise, you see i suffer with spondylosis in my neck and lower back and have been suffering for about five maybe six years on a regular basis with severe pain, burning across the shoulders etc etc, by rights you should have the hip and the spine mri’d to see what is really going on in there, then they will be able to treat the problem once and for all, they are loathe to do it nowadays so i have been informed because of the cost because it costs about £1000.00 per mri, but i would insist there are more things going wrong these days than people realise, i will recommend, what i have been recommended, from a higher source, and that is olive oil capsules 1000 mgs, i’m sure that in a short while you’ll be up and about o.k. Take Care, Alan

    Hi Jilly what you experienced after jabs is normal. when you have a jab you have a small amount of whatever your having the jab for injected into you,not enough to give you the illness tho.This then activates the immune system to make anti -bodies,if you come in contact with what you had the jab for your body will be prepared to fight it off.
    hope this explains all.
