This is the second time in 6mths that I have had my right hip do this. Both times I have just woke up in excrutiating pain! The pain is definetly(sp?) in the hip joint itself and it hurts into the groin area and also toward the outside of my hip (like if you rub the side part of your hip that runs with the seam of your jeans (sorry best way I could think of to describe it). Thankfully I have just went to my pain clinic appt on Tues and have my pain meds so when I woke up this morning and realized what I had going on I just went ahead and took them first thing. Then waited a few minutes and attemped a shower, which I did my best at, and then when I got out I put some theragesic rub on it (its like icy hot). I have made it to work but only by the Grace of God. I had to drive with my left leg/foot which was akward but I have done it before and when I went to get something to drink all the regulars in the store was asking what was wrong. When I told them it was my RA acting up they were like "Oh now come on! You are too young to have that! What did you REALLY do?" I hate that! But as we all know we have to live with that too. But I made it work and now I am thinking that as soon as the pain clinic opens that I should call them and see what they say. Do you all think that's a good idea? I didnt want to come to work today but I had to since I had already missed Tues to go to the pain clinic dr appt. And if anyone out there has any suggestions on what to do to ease this pain off or flat out get rid of it I am sooo open for suggestions! So please HELP!! lol Trying to laugh so I wont cry.
Have a great day,
