I saw a new physio yesterday, who told me that the pain in my knees is chronic ligament damage, I almost fell in tears when she touched my knee I was so embarrassed,, and the crunching is my knee bones rubbing off each other,,
She then told me the pain in my bottom is a problem with my coxic bone deep in my bottom,,
I feel really stupid saying this but after nine years of this bloody pain which I feel everyone did not believe I had, I feel really emotional and upset a little, like its not all in my head after all, it is real what I'm feeling...
When I'd told DH last night he listened a little but then kind of watch the tv whilst I was telling him what I was told,, I had asked him what I'd said and he couldn't answer me, I'm so annoyed with him that he couldn't even care to listen confused
Maybe it's just how I'm feeling as I'm run down a little with the cold but all I needed last night was for him to give us a cuddle and care basicly..
Is all men like this or is it just mine lol,,,

Aw, I'm so sorry you have chronic pain like this. My dh doesn't take that much notice either if mine flares up. It's not surprising that you feel tearful, pain is totally linked to our emotions. Do you have anybody else you could talk to?

Glad youve finally had validation. I find the medical profession very dismissive, for whatever reason, and when you finally have a positive experience, it can be a big relief.

Re: DH I'm sure hes good at some things <clutching at straws> but some people aren't good at listening to some things. My dh is the same, although he will appear jthat he's listening but I'll mention it a few weeks later and he won't have a clue what I'm on about. I've accepted that's the way he is now. I know he loves me but he's crap at certain things....
