Aches & Pain as we age....Hips?
I'm on the other side of 50 (did you know I thought I was a year older until a friend corrected me the other day? LOL) and the aches and pains are quickly setting in.
I'm wondering if anyone has this same problem? For the past couple of years if I move around a lot, after a few hours my upper thigh "bones" hurt and I have to go slowly.
No big deal, it eventually goes away. The same happens when I wake up in the mornings. I get up & walk slowly, thigh bones are aching. After some ibuprophen they get back to normal.
I move a lot and walk fast.
A couple of weeks ago I had my checkup. The nurse was taking me back to the room and I was walking VERY slow because the aches in my bones hadn't gone away since I woke up. She asked me what was wrong and I told her my thigh bones get sore sometimes, no big deal.
She had me show her where I was hurting, and she said it was my hips! Oh Lordy.
I guess she wrote it down and the doctor was very interested in the pain. He said right now to just take something for the pain and not to worry about it...yet.
I've had GREAT energy all week, I've been on my feet off and on all day each day...until around 4. Then my upper thighs starts hurting, and I walk slow until bedtime.
Once I sit down for a few minutes when the pain starts, I literally creep along once I get up.
Anyone here have hip replacements and if so, does this sound like I'm on my way to having one? LOL.
I hate it when I mentally want to do something (like put up decorations) but my body says "NO!"
