What's Up? Hope it is nothing serious. Do you have the option of private coverage or health insurance? What about pay as you go for a specialist? NHS is very hard for us yanks to comprehend.

a big load of assorted repetative strain injuries. they're fairly serious - I've been pretty much unable to work for nearly 18 months now. the nhs is trying, but they're having trouble getting a diagnosis becuase these kind of injuries aren't very common over here (yet).

going private is an option, and it's one I've taken in the past - but it largely just means paying to see the same doctors I've already seen for free with the NHS (albeit in a nicer hospital). I used to have health insurance, with my previous job, but obviously I'm not there any more.

it's mostly just very frustrating, because there's an awful lot of stuff I'd like to do to the site to make it better (not to mention doing plenty of other things, like flying my kites again), but my hands and shoulders won't let me.

Had repetitive strain in the mid 90s. Went through a series of less than painful injections to my elbow and nine trigger points. Usually about a dozen injections a month for several months. Realized that a ergonomic keyboard and better chair along with a track ball was the solution. Has not come back since.

you should just heal yourself; I've heard eating babies helps.
