The worse pain on earth. I'm in physical therapy for my hips and haven't been able to go back 2 going on the3 weeks now because I ended up needing a walker after third session they thought I could do more and pushed a little to hard. Made the horrible mistake of putting me on a treadmill and pain has gotten worse now even when I attempt to bend down the pain is unbearable and I can barely lift the weight of my leg to walk. I'm shuffling/dragging my leg like dead weight my right side is more effected. I'm waiting for my cane to come in the mail hopefully to help my mobility. Horrible just horrible pain started in highschool.
Hi lulabel! Sorry to hear of your diagnosis! Hip pain wakes me as well and im lucky to get all the sleep cycles were supposed to get according to my sleep tracker. Ive had scans and xrays with nothing showing. Today i had that pain that my hips were being pushed appart and i normally dont have hip pain in both hips. :( how do you manage hun? Hats off to you!❤
Hey Laalaa ⚘ Its one of many so im past caring what they want to lable it as lol... 🐴
Ok not in this order but...

Im taking high doses of meds, I have a brilliant GP/PCP... A physio, An Osteo/acupuncturist, A pain consultant (dr dreamy lol), A pain nurse Music! Music! Lol 😉 I do pilates, meditation, i move slowly and pace myself & i have a dog(myBFF), I swim, do light hand weights, i walkk with crutches a wheelchair if its a long way... warm baths with epsom salts (learned here ty🌼) Massage therapy Dry needle therapy...

Wow i do lots reading this... it took me 10yrs to get here tho 🐔
Hope this gives u an idea to help. Maybe in just one way... just one step at a time 🌷
Hey lulabel it does sound that way. I don't think I sleep more then 2-3 hours at a time either. Not fun at all. I'm 45 years old and a walker has been mentioned. I use crutches at times when it's really bad but because I have lupus arthritis in all my joints, the crutches really hurt my hands, wrists and elbows. I don't see how a walker would be much better. I used to work out hard 5 days a week. Now I can hardly walk. At least I have my candles making right now. That's my therapy lol
Laalaa, I've never really thought about it until now. I've had OA and spine DDD for 22+ years. When I first started hurting in 2007 I had pain all over, but especially in the lumbosacral area & neck. I wasn't dx with fibro until 2012 as it worsened all over. 🙂💕🙏🌸
Thank you! Ive finally found a good doctor after 2 years of searching and 2 years of getting a diagnosis. Previous doctors were just quick to want to put me on antidepressants. Im off to see the rheumatiod in november and hopefully they will give me more skills to manage the pain. Im glad lulabell that you have such a good strategy and team to deal with things! X
