Having a Bad Day Leg Pain

Aug 20, 2015 6:21 PM

Having a bad day today. My left leg is hurting really bad. Guess it's because of my RA. It's so hard. One day one thing hurts and than the next day that feels better and than another thing hurts. I just want one day with out anything. I guess that's what everyone would want. I use all my strength and energy up by 1 or 2 and than I'm down for the rest of the day. Want more for my family too. Sorry to complain. Just want to have a life again.

Don't worry about complaining. You're allowed to here.
I actually had a remission earlier this year when I had around a month with only low pain levels and could walk without aids. It was amazing. I went mad decorating (we'd recently moved). Was enjoying the busy busy time and doing so much I almost forgot I had a condition. Sadly, it ended the remission in the usual fashion and, to make things worse, my pain levels worsened and my walking got worse. It hit me hard then, knowing this was never going to go away (not for long anyway).
I guess the pacing is important such as using the spoons theory, but I'm not very good at applying it. If you can then j would recommend it as it clearly helps a lot of people.
Wishing you a pain free day.
