I am currently in severe pain which makes it very difficult for me to walk, I was initially told that I had arthritis in my hip. This diagnosis was wrong. There is nothing wrong with my hip- the problem is in my lower spine and a nerve being affected by this condition.
I was recommended to go to an osteopath and have had four sessions to date. I am still in pain. I have been on the physiotherapy waiting list for one month but have been told that I might have to wait another month. Today I asked for an appointment with a doctor. The earliest appointment available two weeks away. On this showing the NHS is practically useless.
