I now have a titanium right hip. Amazing what the doctors can do with our bodies now to help us have a better quality life. I think I was headed for a wheelchair pretty soon had I not gotten a medical team to get me going on hip replacement. I had a four month waiting period and by the end of that time I could barely get around - to have walked one block was almost a killer. Things are so much better now and I do recommend hip replacement to anyone who is really struggling with mobility and pain.

I have been having some issues with my shoulders and came up with a plan on Friday, together with my doctor, to work on that. Sleep is painful because of shoulder pain so I'm anxious to resolve my difficulties if I can.

I have been sick this last week and, as a result, have changed a lot of what I am doing. Because I was not hungry, I started only eating what was best for me and haven't had any coffee (because of my particular illness and the meds I was on; my blood pressure and pulse was too high) or sugar or alcohol and have decided, now that I am "better" to keep that up for awhile and see what "happens" :-)

In my Record Keeping team I'm keeping track of foods and conditions that make me sneeze. I don't think I have any true allergies but I have a lot of sensitivities and maybe if I rotated things more (or drank more water; what I'm working on now) the random aches and pains and other things might be easier.

I go to the doctor's every 3 months for my thyroid meds and to make sure my asthma is still doing well and every other visit we have blood/urine tests to make sure everything is doing okay overall. Well this time I was prescribed Vitamin D pills so I'm exploring what that is all about.

I seem to have fewer aches and pains and am sleeping better and a couple other changes (not all positive) and I'm hopeful.

For me it is arthritis in my right hip. I have had leg pain for so long that it seems I have no cure. Makes it hard to exercise some days and I am so careful in how I move in order to try to avoid pain. Have tried a chiropractor and massage - today I seem to have some relief but tomorrow might be another story! The only pain medication I take is either Tylenol for Arthritis or Aleve and they don't really help me much. Might have to ask my doctor for something stronger eventually. I like going for walks but it seems to aggravate the hip so I end up in extra pain afterwards.

I think my gain-back of some of the weight I've lost is having a negative effect. I believe I'm getting carpal tunnel in my hands; I wake up at night with a dead, painful hand and read up on it. It could be from my thyroid problems but I'm determined to get the weight back off and get back to drinking water, see if some of the aches and pains are mostly just swellings from not enough water and too much fat, inflammation, etc.

My asthma's still gone and my hypothyroid is just annoying, not obnoxious :-) Hope it all stays that way for "winter".

Do you have problems that require different eating and/or make it difficult to exercise? How is SparkPeople helping or what can we do to help?

I have sphygmomanometry-evoked allodynia :-) means the blood pressure cuff is excruciatingly painful so my blood pressure is off the charts. The nurse practitioner my husband and I saw a couple weeks ago suggested my getting a wrist monitor so I bought the top-of-the-line Omron one, with monitoring software (so I can print it out and take it to my doctor's) and internal software that makes sure my wrist is at heart level (one of the reasons medical people don't like wrist monitors, the position of one's wrist has to be a heart level and until recently there was no way to make that happen; now the monitor only works if it's in the right location).

So, I've been reading about blood pressure and working out plans to lower mine (exercise is the biggest help) and am having fun taking it at different times of day (and night, lol); the monitor also takes it 3 times and averages the scores for a reading (but records all 3 scores). The computer chart has a place for "notes" for each day so I'm putting what meds I'm taking (thyroid) and exercising I'm doing, etc. I'm having fun. My blood pressure is much better/more normal than at the doctor's and I know he'll be pleased with what I'm doing. I'm thrilled because now I won't keep getting lectures on how I need meds quite so often :-)
