On Sunday and Monday getting up in the morning took ages. My left hip refused to move for several seconds and was complete agony. I put this down to the act that i had been lying down all night, but twisting and turning as i frequently now cannot get a decent nights sleep. But this short sharp pain that stops me sudently has been happening in the daytime too when i have been moving. I'm on the list for a steroid injection, but my consultant has also mentioned surgery......this will depend on my epilepsy.
But yesterday i was in so much pain and physically drained. I'm taking pain killers. Now a sharper pain has started up just lower down from my hip. I'm hoping it's just a strain.
I realise that my steroid injection won't be for quite a while due to the pressure the NHS are under, so am not expecting things to happen quickly.
But i haven't felt so low before with my arthritis at finding myself unable to move and then only being able to move dry slowly. I have pulled out of a charity swim. My GP said to keep swimming though as i know it is good for me.
Whether my arthritis is worse or the weather is worse i don't know, but last winter i didn't feel as much pain as i am feeling now.
Sorry to let off a bit of steam. I can't get to a support group where i am and no one around me has OE. If they do they have cars, which i don't have and at time it feels frustrating.
