"The Therapies Centre,Hull Royal Infirmary.."

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

The physiotherapist I saw works for the "Therapies Centre" next to Hull Royal Infirmary. He accepted my (very true) explanation that I suffer terribly from "chronic fatigue syndrome"/fibromyalgia/ fibro fog. He gave me excercise's to do to help me very painfull right shoulder/collar-bone. The only thing that has ever worked to kill the pain for me was a cortisone injection,but he just discharged me back to my GP,where I'm just back on the 'carousel'/'merry-go-round,after the excercise's didn't work....... :( Year after year this same problem just drags on-and-on-and-on..... :(
