Hello everyone - welcome back SWind
Physio diagnosed Shoulder Impingement Syndrome http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/impingemen ... drome.aspx and at the moment we are trying exercises to see how far that will take us - another appointment next Wednesday.
Very nice cab driver took me to the physio and back again - he was telling me about his former life in Sierra Leone - he has a BSc and MSc in Agriculture and other qualifications too and worked as an agronomist with the UN, but life became too dangerous for him there in the early 90s and he had to flee - he said that the war coupled with China's not always benign influence had led to a lot of problems and the government was not always able to stand up to pressure from China - he says that he would like to return one day and help his country but at the moment he will be arrested if he goes back, as he tried to stand up against corruption to do with food supplies. He says he has a good life here in Norfolk, even if he has to work as a cabbie rather than an agronomist, and his daughter plays football for the local women's team and dreams of playing for England. Absolutely fascinating. I hope he is able to go back one day and help his country as he wants to.
