BBC News Logo

“Dora Marshall was so crippled with arthritic pain in her arms and legs she would lie crying in bed at night unable to move. Mrs Marshall, 97, from Bradford, has suffered from arthritis for more than 10 years. She used to take pain killers daily to ease the pain, but last summer her painkillers seemed to lose their effect. She said: ‘I was in agony. I could hardly move. It would take me hours to get in and out of bed the pain was so bad. When I did get into bed, I would just lie there awake unable to move or turnover on my side the arthritis was so painful. I love playing the piano, but last June my fingers were so crippled with arthritis I couldn’t move them to play. I was devastated.’ But when Mrs Marshall’s doctor gave her a new hand-held device to try, called PainGone* – the size and shape of a pen – her pain was relieved instantly.”
