"Treatment is keeping me mobile"

About: Queen's Medical Centre / Rheumatology

(as the patient),

I’ve attended a self help course with arthritis care with Dr Brittain. I have discussed possible pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs. She helped me in the new year of 2009 when my arthritis became worse. I was sent back to Dr Gaywood who recommended antriptyline in the evening to get me into a good sleep pattern. I would like to have the chance to receive acupuncture to help with hip/knee/foot pains. This is not available on the NHS, this should change. I’ve had pain killing injections in my foot and hip (this is treatment you are referring to). I’m attending the treatment centre seeing Dr Gaywood about my knee locking up. The treatment is ongoing keeping me mobile.
