Thanks for your input Johan and your clarification Keith. I’m on holiday in the Kruger Game Park at present with limited internet coverage so a quick reply. I’m just trying to get through the holiday and to cope with the pain so am living on paracetamol with codeine, colchine and NSAIDs for the next 10 days. Long stretches sitting in the car plus safaris vehicles over rough roads have taken their toll on my back and I can hardly put any weight on my right hip😢. It is really spoiling what should be a wonderful experience getting back to nature and seeing all the wild animals and birds. My appointment with the rheumalogist should hopefully provide some answers.
