I went to meet an adult last week who has cerebral palsy and has a lot of pain in her hand. Her fingers on her right hand flex backwards bending at the middle knuckle. She is prescribed pain killers by the doctor but is going to ask for a second opinion. She also uses therma care heat pads at night but they are over £3 each and she has to have a new one every night and the GP cannot prescribe these. Does anyone else use these pads and do you have them prescribed? Do you have the same difficulties with your hand? – if so the person I met would like to know what treatments you have had and whether you have found a cheaper heat pad?
