Pain, Pain, n Pain

Wednesday, April 13, 2016

Well great day all in all, good weather and everything though a little nippy.

Ended up doing 10k with my husband walking around down town Toronto (doing the whole job hunting thing - went to a career fair as well) so over the course between noon and 5pm we covered a little over 10km.

Now I use to be able to do 10k plus without issue what so ever, doing 15k even 20k was not uncommon just two years ago - yet over the past two years that has dropped to the point that I can't walk a single block (under 1k) without being in pain in my hips.

I've talked to my GP and she has sent me of tests that show a narrowing in my neck (what will lead to a chair in time) and a narrowing in my lower spin. But other wise nothing to show why I am having hip pain what so ever, the Neurologist I saw blames it on being a T1D and says it's Diabetic Nurophathy yet my Endo says there is no way in his professional opinion that it is that in any way shape or form.

My Chiropractor who I have seen since I was 3 years old (grew up with his daughter) doesn't know what it is, he agrees with my Endo that it's not diabetic related from what he can tell from how it feels to him when he works on the area.

I am sitting here, trying to finish up a few things of my own (I do freelance graphic/web work) and because of the pain in my hips the sitting is almost as bad as the standing for the pain, I'm almost in tears from it. Nothing seems to help, I've tried OTC and if lucky I'll get 30 min or less of reduced pain but that just means it goes from a 7 to a 5 or 6 so ya not really much of a reduction when it comes to being able to function.

I'm thinking that its more then one issue that is causing things which is why it can't be pin pointed at for one specific cause - yet that does no good for figuring it out either. One suggestion of arthritis was ruled out so apparently its not that. Sighs right now I just won't to be able to sit down without being in pain, would love to be able to sleep without pain and well walking without being in pain would be a blessing.
