Thank you for your very quick response. I know about all the physical remedies you suggest - aerobic exercise which I do 2c a week/ I have massage/reflexology/reiki/indian head massge every 4/6 weeks.
I stand in a moderately hot shower every morning.
I have tried a course of eastern acupuncture (Chinese) - recommended by my physiotherapist. I didn't get much relief &, in fact, experienced a worsening of symptoms for a couple of days after each treatment and was bruised at all the needle sites. The acupuncturist reckoned needling was not a suitable therapy for me.
I also have a chiropractic session once every couple of months to keep my spine "in order".
I have a Tens Machine & get some relief from pain for a few hours afterwards but have too many joints affected to treat all the painful places!
My GP is reluctant to prescibe opoid analgesics as I have had 2 cardiac ablations in the last 3 years for violent episodes of atrial fibrilation and since then have been unable to tolerate anything stronger than paracetamol without experiencing cardiac disturbances & rapid beating. It's a case of leave well alone where my heart is concerned.
Similarly with valerian, St John's Wort, Ginseng - I take Sotalol Hydrochloride as an antiarrythmia medication & I believe they are contra-indicated
I believe I'm doing everything I can that is usually recommended to help alleviate the symptoms thrown up by this virus.
I feel that the root of my symptoms lies in a weakened immune system which is not throwing this virus off & that's where I might be able to help myself.
I posted my case on the site as Homeopathy was flagged up as an option and therefore expected homeopathic remedies to be suggested.
Is this not the case?
