I've had a sore hip for over a week now and as most of you know I have suffered from arthritis most of my life. It's a pain I am very familiar with so when I get it or something new flares up I don't make a fuss and just get on with things.My hip has been waking me up at night and hurts like hell to change sides.I haven't been going to the gym as I didn't want to aggravate it, yesterday was my first time in 10 days and I did push the envelope as it didn't hurt at the time. Today is a different story, nothing I do eases the pain, I have a constant ache in my hip joint and when I stand, it is like someone is stabbing me in the butt with knife. Last night the pain was so severe I could not roll over, I had to sit up and stand, then lay down in the new positon which was pretty pathetic.I've taken pain killers all day and am holding off taking the big guns until I can't bear it any longer. I'm sitting here with one butt check on the chair trying to get into a comfortable position - but it's not working so I'll have to sign off. I haven't weighed since my last "look" as I don't want to see it over the 120kg mark.Yesterday I medicated myself with some Lindt chocolate, god it was nice, but this morning I threw out the rest of it as I know in the long run it will only add to the problem.

Do you take anything to help the arthritus.
My mother has suffered for years and has always taken Cod Liver Oil Tablets (you need the ones with Glucosomine added).
Hope you can get rid of the pain.

I hope you get some pain relief soon. Almost sounds like your sciatic nerve.
Like wanna B said above, would a massage help?

You poor thing. Some people are so good with pain, others are shocking. I know that when I had that toothache a week or so back, shit, I couldn't see straight! My Brother in law has a spur on his spine, and his pain level is constant, and will be till the day he dies. Are there any natural remedies that could help? I used to do Neways, and I know they had a product for arthritis.

Aaww you poor thing! [[HUG]]
Would massage help it? Or is it the bone itself?
Will heat packs work?
Don't worry about the weight thing too much. You were wise to get rid of the chocolate as you are right, it will make the problem worse later on.
Look after yourself! :o/

Perhaps some time in a hot tub for some warm water therapy? I used to do that when I was in college during basketball season. It feels so much better.

Sorry to hear about the arthritis. It is very nasty, and I hope you will consider seeing a doctor for whatever modern medicine can do for it?
