I am 48 and have just been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my hips with the right one being the worse. I feel I am, all of a sudden unable to do the normal things I have been doing all my Life!!
I have broken sleep. Feel awful pain in my right knee all the time although they say I do not have arthritis in my Knee!, I have difficulty going up Stairs!
I joined yoga and although I enjoy it and at the sessions I am not soo sore when I get home the pain in my knee is really Bad! I don't know whether to keep it up or not.
I used to walk for an hour and a half between 3 and 5 times a week but I only walk once now as I am soo sore and stiff afterwards. Everything I read says keep active but it's so sore after every activity - I even went swimming and felt great whilst in the water but soo sore After!, I just don't know what to do!! I hate taking painkillers but obviously I have had to resort to them on many occasions!!!
Can anyone tell me if the really bad knee pain is common with osteoarthritis of the hip as my hip is hardly ever that sore???
