I have no idea what I did, or what might be causing it, but my right hip is giving me SO MUCH grief and pain this morning!!
Actually, I suspect it might have to do with doing the leg exercises with the resistance band. But that doesn’t really make a lot of sense — the band I use is very light-weight and the exercises are supposed to be strengthening muscle to better support the joint.
I truly do not know why this is happening, but I DO know that there is not a single position in which I can sit, stand, recline, walk, or anything without the hip firing off pain signals constantly. I can’t even sit on the toilet without severe pain interfering with why I’m sitting there. On a side note, however, now that I’ve stopped taking the iron supplements, I don’t have to sit there forever practicing my Lamaze breathing just to make something happen. But still, how crazy stupid is that when I can’t sit on the toilet like I always have done? 🙁
An hour later (and 3 ibuprofen later) the pain is beginning to calm down. Sheesh!
Mid-Afternoon — So I went to Kroger this morning, ordered meals from Mai Thai (their House Special Lo Mein, and their Chicken and Broccoli). Ate half of the Lo Mein for lunch; actually I ate most of the goodies and hardly any of the noodles.
Took an hour and a half nap, and just now took my walk to the end of the block. Oh good golly, my legs feel so heavy and tired and sore; I could barely walk today. Very strange, since I’ve done that walk 2 or 3 times a day previously.
I’m guessing it is just one of those ‘down’ days on the road to recovery. And possibly not enough sleep. And possibly using the resistance bands for my leg exercises. Or a combination of it all. Hell, I don’t know. It all just hurts. Tomorrow is another day, I suppose.
