The good and the bad

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

So I had a really good walk this morning. I walked two miles in 30.5 minutes. During my walk, I felt great. I was right there in the groove. I felt proud of myself, I was having fun and I didn't hurt.

See, I've had a near constant pain in my left hip that can cause my knee and ankle to hurt also. But today, while I was walking really fast, I didn't ache at all. It was great.

Then I finished my two miles and slowed down. Immediately, my hip started hurting. Had it waited until after I cooled down and sat for a few minutes, I would have understood better, but this one really confused me.

So, now I have an appointment with my doctor on the 23rd to review my normal health issues and talk about my hip. In the mean time, I will continue to walk and see how that affects the pain.

In the meantime, we will be going to Pensacola on Friday after work to visit my brother-in-law and nephews for the long weekend. New challenges all the time.

More later,

    I hope the doctor can find an easy fix for your hip.

    It sounds like you need some physical therapy stretches . It could be a tight tendon.
    It could be sciatic nerve problem if it goes down your leg to the foot. That starts in the lower back. That is what I had after my back surgery and the acupuncture worked wonders for me. I am such a believer in ity I have had it for my hands and they are feeling better.
    I complained about always being cold and after last Thurday session I am warm enough to not need my electric blanket.

    Perhaps you are walking too fast too soon that is quite a fast walk.
    When it calms down take a shorter slower walk and just do it again later in the day. See what that does for the pain.

    Meantime have a wonderful time in Pensacola. Pat in Maine.
