Alexander Arnold is twice as long as Lortus Cheek. The name, I mean.

People who slow to 30mph below the speed limit as soon as they see a speed camera.

Signing up for something online and having to enter all your information including copies of insurance cards.

Getting to the place and having to fill in forms asking for exactly the same information and provide the same insurance cards for them to scan.

Left hand meet right hand...

I assume it's all part of getting old. I asked my Doc last time I saw him and he said there was nothing he could do about it... Thanks!

In bed, right calf. Had another at 05.00am last night.

I've consulted Dr. Google in the past past about this when I have suffered similar attacks. For me, it was linked to being dehydrated. So drinking a little more water and also stretching the leg muscles before going to sleep seemed to help.

Edf energy phoning me to tell me they are going to increase my energy bill, after asking me security questions they then put me on hold, I got bored and hung up. You would have thought if they were phoning me they would have their information ready.

Now obviously we don't need to see adverts full of perfectly formed individuals with unobtainable physiques (for most of us).

However, I'm getting fed up with seeing ads full of grossly overweight individuals wobbling their sweaty bits about. I don't think it's a particularly healthy message that it's normal. It does have the effect of putting me off eating when I'm watching though.

Went for a walk yesterday evening, only a couple of miles, big pain in left big toe and above left knee - kept me awake til 3.20am - i am hating getting old. Dr Google says gout, so that's nice.

Hate getting old? beats the alternative.

:p. Although my mother-in-law's favourite saying was 'getting old is not for the faint-hearted'.

Tossers who decide to visit a car boot sale, decide to buy something for 1.50 and then offer you a 20 note.

Tossers who come into a shop, decide to buy something for .59p and then offer you a credit or debit card.

I've been having a real problem with pain in an around my left toe for a while now. Doctor sent me for a blood test to check my Uric acid levels and whilst they were slightly increased, they didn't think the levels were significant. They gave me a course of gout meds which did f**k all. Then had an x-ray that shows osteoarthritis all around my toes. Waiting now to have a series of bones fused in my foot that should make life easier. But it looks like my dancing days are over!

Been there.

My pain is in my shoulder (slight) and predominantly hands, which is particularly bad at times; sometimes I cannot grip properly or open water bottles. Rheumatology insists it is gout. Gout medication, which I have tried twice now, and this time increased as per instruction has had zero effect, except for the side-effect of nosebleeds from the Allopurinol (the idiots know my medication history). I cannot afford that whilst on Apixaban, so I stopped it all. Appointment coming up in a month or so, but I have zero confidence in them. If they want yet more blood tests they can do one. I will just put up with the variable pain and inconvenience.

No, that side of the business is mail order only.

If it is gout you have my sympathies. I've had where the weight of a single cotton sheet on the bed was so painful :mad:
