Osteoarthritis pain.....part 2

Sunday, August 14, 2011

Slept very little last night due to pain...up since 2:30 AM. Last night in bed I could feel the pain in my left hip, lower part of my back & some in my left leg to ankle. Will call doctor 1st thing in the morning & see when I can get in to see her.

I was supposed to walk 2.25 miles yesterday to finish week 3 of the 5K Training program. I got on the treadmill & walked about 4 minutes (slowly) & decided it was not worth the pain since at that time I was feeling a little better. Tomorrow (hopefully, if I feel like it) I will start a repeat of week 3.

Thanks SparkFriends for your concern.

    I hope that the DR. can help you find some relief. My walks are limited so I admire you for doing so much. My PT reminds me to do little movements instead of trying big ones. I found a back wrap that I can heat in the microwave that seems to help a lot. emoticon

    Pain is not part of the lifestyle change: good health is. You are smart to listen to your body!

    so sorry you are in such pain, and with lack of sleep, sure does not help.

    hope the doc can help relieve your pain. emoticon
