Having a hard time.. but not giving up..!~

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Well things are much better.. daughter and kids moved out.. now me and hubby have house to ourselves! I sized down big time so dont have as much stuff as i used to.. going to have a garage sale soon to get rid of a lot. But the hard thing is the back of my legs. Like my thighs all the way to my butt.. its like they feel sore. I have fallen so many times i am figuring i have arthritis now cause where i was most affected from falls. But dont know for sure.. so i am still exercising and stretching a lot.. and see if can work thru it but sometimes it makes it hard to sleep. I have to use a Ben Gay type of stuff to make it easier to sleep and take baths.. But i wont give up and will work and work until i lose.. !! Now i so understand how a lot of you feel when you have health problems and cant work out like you want.. ! When there is a will there is a way..

    Okay you need to be careful that you don't do more damage . If you could get checked out it would be best . Although exercise is good for arthritis because I have it in my spine and if I exercise I don't have any pain. You might be over doing it so be careful.
Take it easy and don't over due.
Hugs and Love Lorraine

Having RA I have had to deal with pain in my joints and bones since I was 38 and I'm 61 now. If you can get to a doctor and have them prescribe Voltaren gel you will find that it will help you alot. It is a rub on but is like asprin (which I can no longer take) and is absorbed through your skin instead of your stomach..and it goes directly to your joints, muscles and bone pains. My hubby uses it on bee stings to bring the swelling down as is prescription but it seems to work for me. As we age, it gets harder and harder for our bodies to bounce back..keep up with the exercise..I know when I give in to the pain and rest rather than move, then it gets harder the next time around. I can't take most meds today for pain or inflamation or for the RA but I do also have a perscription for Tramadol which is a non narcotic pain med which won't hurt my these are some suggestions. Stretching is the best I have found and just getting out and walking..Do something for your mental health as well..get a good hair cut or manicure or pedicure or just go outside and meditate. Hope you get to feeling better soon. Hugs. Barb

    So glad that you have your home back....woo hoo! Now is the time to form your new routines and habits for a healthy and happy life. You deserve it! I sure can identify with the aches and pains as I age. Not fun. I have arthritis as well. And I do not like to take westtern meds as the side effects are worst than the pain.
Exercising helps!
Have a great Thursday!

    It makes a difference when you can make you life simpler. I'm glad you are still trying even though your legs are painful. Keep working hard and talk to your doctor. There might be a simple reason for your leg issues. I'm really proud on how you've come along and work through everything. Hope you do great with your yard sale! emoticon
