I Don't Like This No Running Thing

The weather is seriously pissing me off. Saturday it was 65, yesterday 64 and today it was 58. Perfect running weather. Not perfect weather for me to be laying on the floor doing leg stretches.

Saturday, D went running. I was jealous. I did stretches on the floor and then we went to see GT play. True to form like everything else in my life lately, my mind wandered constantly while watching the game. I wasn't talking, so I'm not sure how I missed 2 TDs, but I did. During the 3rd quarter I realized I was in terrible pain, so we left. At home, I think we watched more football, and random tv and drank some beer and had some chili.

Yesterday we had our Sunday morning date and then did the grocery store. By the time we got back, guess what? I was in pain. So I took a nap. We ended up watching No Reservations and drinking beer.

Today, I was just in pain. I did my stretches. My hip is not getting better. I'm talking to the PT tomorrow (3rd visit). I think I need something else.

I'm tired of complaining about my hip. I'm tired of it hurting. I'm tired of taking meds that aren't working. But besides not running, I cannot walk the dogs, mow the lawn, go shopping, go grocery shopping, help cook, help do laundry, walk to the football stadium, stand through a game, etc. Not to mention I have no focus. I'm all caught up on your blogs, and I read, and can't remember what I just read. I'm trying to study for my certification, and get through 1 page and totally get lost. Ugh!

Yeah, I need to figure out plan B for this hip thing.

Oh Al! I'm so sorry about your hip. I know I haven't been commenting lately...

My fingers are crossed for you and your visit with the PT.

Oh no. I am sorry about your hip. I hope the PT can fix you back up so you can move around. Good luck!

I had a hip issue last year. Was having issues with something, but not sure what. Could have been my piriformis muscle spasming but it felt like someone stabbing my in the butt, literally. so after several months of on again, off again pain, my hip just started to go crazy and get worse like every day. it got to the point i could not walk. it was right after xmas, went to walk in clinic, they gave me anti-inflams but they didn't work great. they referred me to a specialist, turns out it was bursitis. got a cortizone shot (hurt like hell) but it felt awesome a few days later. had x-rays and an mri off hips and nothing wrong. never had issues like ever. it was a rheumatologist that I saw b/c they thought i maybe had some type of arthritis. my 2 cents. i feel your pain though!

I am seriously on the same page as you. It is driving me crazy. My hip freaking hurts when I sneeze. Where does yours hurt? My dog is getting tired of short walks. I've got my third visit to PT this week but I'm thinking about cancelling it and asking my Dr to do an MRI or something. I think PT is making it worse so I can't even make myself do the exercises anymore.

I'm so sorry. I've read you for a while and I've seen you in your good times and it has really upset me to see everything crumble down in the past six months. But things are better! Much better. And, as someone who is also in PT (for a bad knee) I want to say, loudly, that your hip will be better. At some point. Just keep trucking! You have strength and determination, I know you do, you're a Georgia Tech fan still for some reason :-P
