Not a good day

Ok so heres the deal, even since my FX has been on the road, the brake pedal has always annoyed me, it sat to high and was uncomfortable to use, but it was one of those things it didnt annoy me enough to do anything about it, til now. my little outing a few weeks back to a local show literally 500m from home highlighted that with my bung leg and back now, that i wouldnt be able to drive it any further than that, I have spent the last 3 days working at my reduced capacity to reposition the brake pedal so its closer to the floor and closer to the accelerator pedal, success, worked out perfect, took it for a test drive today, but unfortunately due to the restricted space in an FX and the shape of the seats and pretty much everything put together, I am now unable to drive it any more. on both accelerator and brake pedals my leg now goes into spasms and cramps up after about 15 mins driving it, So i can now officially not drive my FX anymore....... my only options would be to relocate the seat further back to give more leg room in the front and none in the rear or fit some sort of hand controls. Or sell it and live like a king on the money LOL

OK, before you flick the car, try helping your body cope with it's problem.

It will help with the back and when rubbed on the cramping areas will stop the cramping.
I have been using it for 17 years on my back, shoulders, and anywhere I hurt.
My 71 year old body has taken a pounding but I refuse to just curl up and die.
But don't be like a mate of mine.
I gave him a bottle and 2 weeks later he told me it did not work.
It took the dick head 65 years to get arthritis and he expects it to go in 2 weeks.
Just don't rub your eyes or itch your nether regions while it is on your hands.
It took me 3 months to get rid of the shoulder pain which was so bad I could not lift a cup of tea.
I also have 2 panadol osteo every morning and 2 mobic (anti inflamatory) twice a week as well as 5ml of celery juice extract a day.

Your call. Good luck and Happy New Pain Free Year.

Cheers for that, its worth a try, anything is... My problem isnt age related though unfortuntely, the sciatic nerve in my right leg, along with god knows what else has been damaged by radiation treatment to the base of the spine where a 4.5cm tumor has eaten away most of the right side of the Sacrum, im 5mths post surgery on my spine to fit a metal cage essentially fusing my L$ and L5 to my pelvis hopefully stabilising movement in that area to stop the pain. the result of all of that is i have a permantly numb right leg that has constant feeling of pins and needles, Its only 5 weeks since i have even been allowed to drive at all.It also restricts movement in the pelvic area as i now have a rigid section that no longer bends, Its that section i believe that dosent allow me to lift my leg high enough to operate the pedals in my FX comfortably forcing it to do so is what causes the cramping i described the other day. its actually more of a nerve spasm from the nerve being pinched by bones moving around. Its the same restriction in movement that dosent allow me to do many things such as put my own socks on or tie my shoe laces. its slowly improving but its sort of at the point it aint gunna get much better i'm afraid. as for panadol, i take oxycodone daily along with a host of other stuff, heres a pic of my monthly chemist trip , well apart from the cold and flu stuff and some asthma related stuff, this is the shelf above my computer at my desk

maybe some mods to assist you with driving it...def a bummer...if you have a bit of cash and charm you could possibly invest in a driver like this...or if you don't have money or charm maybe settle for less...don't mean to trivialise your predicament just lighten things up a little - good luck.

Take borax along with magnesium and thank me later.
I was on 6 to 10 pain killers a day, two lyrica a day and still in pain ... until borax.
I now take zero lyrica and i might swallow a pain killer once a week or fortnight but only for a head ache .. my bones and joints are great mate . If you put a hand on any joint or my shoulder ect, you can feel the crunching still but no clicking or cluncking any more, no kneee lock ups .. cant stress enough about the awesomness of this stuff.
You need to start really slow and build up dosage gradually, google herxiemer reaction and any symptom of that, stop for a week and resart a bit slower .. i herxed big time and thought i was as good as dead but i got through that and now i put a couple of pinches of borax in every cuppa i have .
I'd suggest you start with a small pinch (in a drink)per day for a week then do it twice a day for a week then increase your dosage as you see fit but you MUST take magnesium as well .
fixed any osteo, arthritis and other bone probs, my dementia seems to have buggered off and my memory is getting better too.
True story, diss it if ya wish.

If you decide to give it a go, the best natural borax comes from turkey, supermarket borax is usually synthetic crap.
I buy the best available .. from here ... https://www.blants.c...
