    Sumatriptan has been marvelous for me – but also finding some food triggers for my migraines have also helped reduce them and their frequency/intensity.

    Luckily I don’t get too many general headaches.

    As might says – and as you probalby know – the sciatic nerve is being squashed by something in your spine and it is causing it to feel pain. I get sciatica from scar tissue in my hamstring which is mostly just pins and needles but shooting pains as well sometimes. I have had acupuncture for it (which helped and aslo cleared up my hayfever!) and most latterly sports massage, which is £40 a pop but has helped a lot. It may be worth speaking to a physio or massage person, they will tell you if they feel they cannot treat without a doctors say so.

    The biggest thing I hate about men is they want to be in control, or think they should be in control.

    @babe Not all men. You’ve obviously met the tossers

    But let’s be blunt – women don’t help themselves sometimes. You don’t have to accept that treatment.

    And women can be just as demanding, controlling and abusive.

    Be a good person, don’t be an ******* – whether you’re a man or a woman.

    I thought a bit about this last night. Both my grandmothers and my mother, through death or divorce were ‘on their own’ for protracted periods of time. My Nan was a widower for longer than she was married.
    So I guess this is what has coloured my outlook somewhat. I grew up around (what I consider to be) very strong, independent women. My own mother is nearly 70 and continues to run two successful businesses. Everything she has, she earned and worked hard for. I am very proud of her and very grateful to have been raised by these women.

    Perhaps. The likes of Spain and Portugal are mature sides, England’s only hope is it grows into the game through the initial rounds otherwise they’ll getting a hiding later on.
