Thank you to everyone who commented on my last post. It seems that so many people are suffering back and hip pain at the moment, in fact suffering pain per se. I think Rambler hit the nail right on the head by saying that the year of inactivity has weakened our muscles to the point of causing us physical problems. My heart goes out to all of you who are in pain and distress. You are not alone. Take heart. Sending healing hugs to you all.
My GP rang me yesterday within 30 minutes of the allotted time. It was so weird trying to explain over the telephone exactly where my pain is 🤔 I explained that I have had it for more than 6 weeks and am unsure what triggered it or how to ease it. She said that it's probably not arthritis if it came on quickly but is more likely to be tendon damage. She didn't want to authorise an x-ray unless I've had a fall ( I havent) so the conclusion was to carry on with the Ibuprofen and Paracetamol combined and "see how it goes", in other words "just get on with life and put up with it " 🙄 Time will tell....
On Sunday I suddenly remembered that I needed fuel in the car. The gauge has been on red for some time so I drove to the petrol station, topped up and paid the princely sum of £2.99 for a basic car wash too. There was no way I could wash it myself right now so it felt like money well spent. Afterwards, I popped in the supermarket for some cake and spotted these at bargain prices. No standing baking.... Job done! 😉
I'm booked in for a haircut on Thursday next week. Not before time you might say 😉
Anyway, thanks for popping in and stay safe and well wherever in the world you happen to be x
