Severe leg pain

Nov 28, 2015 5:04 PM

Hi all of my pain family, hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with their families. We went to my brother's home about 35 miles from us we had a good time. Friday morning I woke up with severe pain in my rt side of my back hip my thigh down to my knee down my shin and into the top of my foot and ankel. I haven't had this much pain in my leg in yrs. Don't know what might have triggered it. The only thing I can guess at is I have been doing laundry my washer and dryer is outside in a storage building and I have to walk up and down stairs,toting heavy baskets of clothes, then toting the baby up and down stairs. I was doing this through until after midnight thursday. I haven't been able to do anything Friday thru today, it is a little better,using heated rice packs and roll on OTC pain releavers. Seems like they are helping a little. Have been doing a no no, I made Rum Balls for Christmas and after taking my Hydrocodn / Acetaminophen I have been eating some to kick up my pain relief. I know I shouldn't be doing this so I stopped. But it did seem to help I managed to sleep through the night .

Weezie, I'm so sorry sweet friend. It very well could be the stairs. I hurt worse anytime I use stairs. You take it easy. Hugs & prayers you'll get better real soon! 🙏🌼

Stairs can be harder on your body than you think. And stop being super mom already! 😉

Weezie, I am so very sorry that you are dealing with such horrible pain in your knee. I have been having worse and worse time getting up and down the stairs. As I come down, my knee separates and then it crunched back together and hits bone to bone and sometimes it crushed a nerve and then the pain shoots yo and down my leg and Im afraid I'll fall. I was just starting to get better from being sick and with all my nieces and nephews coming here (they're all sick.. Every last one) now my Dad is sick, my Mom is sick, I'm getting sicker 😷🤒 and my fever has now returned. The antibiotic is making me so sick with my GERD that no medicine is making that better. Oh well, winter is coming and that's where I'm at I guess. It'll be ok for ALL of us. We are strong, we are family and we are warriors. We have each other and we WILL put one foot in front of the other and make it through to the other side and then we'll do it all over again, it's ok. It's the way our lives are now. I am sending you gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers my friend that you feel better soon. Hang in there.💕🙏🏻🌻

I have one rule I follow... If others are sick or I am, then I avoid and visit later. I've had a weak immune system since the 80's and catch/keep sicknesses longer. It's easier for me to avoid. I oppose you all are feeling better soon. And Weezie, CRPS had good diced, if only for a short while. Let others take on more while you rest. Hugs! 🙏🌼

Always I will suggest that I was just in the same situation with the house full of sick parents to definitely increase your vitamin C I would also get herbal green tea and herbal chamomile tea mix them together and drink that drink at least 2 a.m. classes of that per day this will help up your immune system and also of course wash your hands and make sure that your parents are sneezing or throwing up in this random places and also make sure you keeping yourself head even if its with the soups and like things I did this and survived a two week flew with mom and dad both sick and did not come down with even one symptom I hope your parents get well soon I'll have already gotten better.

Thank you all of my dear sweet friends for all y'all's suggestions. Alwayz I am so sorry that you are so sick again, have you tried eating Greek yogurt to help counteract the antibiotics. They always give me diarrhea when I take them. So I always eat yogurt to help fight that and it works . Have you tried a hot toddy I make mine from an old home remedie, I buy a small bottle of whiskey, bag of peppermint, honey,and lemon. Heat it up and drink about a 1/4 cup before bedtime. It seems to help me. I haven't done anything for the last 3 days and it has gotten better, but late yesterday evening a storm blew in so I belive that had a lot to do with it. I believe I will be back to normal as normal as it gets go me lol by in the morning . I have got to wash my bedclothes, can't stand them any longer. Will be keeping all of y'all in my prayers, and sending hugs and love to everyone .
