psoriatic arthritis and severe hip pain
I was diagnosed with Psoriatic arthritis in July after a couple of years going back and forward to my GP where I thought I had Lupus as I am high risk for it.
Anyway in the past year I have went from an energetic person walking 10,000 steps a day and doing pilates and yoga classes to walking under 3,000 steps a day and no exercise classes. I had to give them up cause of the fatigue.
I work 5 hours a day (in an office in a hospital). I am not static at my desk cause I'm constantely at the printer or filing stuff away but when I get home I need to go lie down for an hour or so.
For the past few weeks my right hip has been very stiff and a little bit sore when walking but very sore when I bend over or lift my foot up to put my shoes on.
I phoned the support line on Monday and they phoned me back today and they think the pain is mechanical and to take stronger painkillers. I am confused because I don't understand what he meant by mechanical pain.
I have tried googling it but still cant find it
