KayBuckaroo's Journal, 22 July 2018

1am and I’m awake. Woke up due to some horrible pain in my right SI, same old chronic pain flaring up something fierce. Old me would have gotten up, eaten a pint of ice cream, taken a handful of Tylenol and gotten a heating pad. New me got a hip rub from hubby, stretched and self massaged, and now I’m journaling again. I intend on making a new rice sock tomorrow or at least very soon. I know what is happening in there, in my hip I mean, and I know why. I also knew I would experience this degree of pain once I got in shape and worked out this much. What has changed is my mind: I am surrendering to the pain. Old me would have done many things to distract myself from it, most of all I would have eaten without hesitation. My plan now is to physically treat my pain, stay in bed to avoid the temptation of food, and starting tomorrow I will amp up my self care regime including epsom salt baths and moist heat. I am a hurtin doggie. It’s such deeply sharp and agonizing pain, and I have no position that is comfortable. Of course I work tomorrow.... I’m concerned I will be tired and sore in the morning. Tylenol with my coffee I guess. Thanks for reading.

Sounds like you have a great plan in place. I hope your pain lets up so you can get some sleep! ❤️

Ugh- so sorry you’re in pain. Hope you can get some relief and at least some sleep before you need to get up

My dr thinks I have sciatic (spelling?) issues going back to my first pregnancy. Some nights I can’t bare to lay in any way that adds any pressure to that hip. It’s no fun for sure. Hope the massage has worked and that you can get some sleep soon! Occasionally placing a small pillow at my lower back has helped for some reason. If you can’t sleep maybe that would help you. Hope you feel better soon!

I am sorry you are in so much pain. when my back goes out I have to keep actively moving. Just the opposite of what works for you. do what works and I hope you feel better

Hope you feel better soon. I have one of those 12 foot curved pillows and use that sometimes - often to prop my back up so I'm not pressing on the hip. I try a circular blow up cushion with a hole, but it's too hard.

The new you totally rock. Like what would ice cream do to your pain? Make is disappear or simply distract you for the duration of the pint? Huge!!!! Feel better with the pain...

Sounds like you've sorted out what works for you - that's awesome! Hope you're feeling better today. I have some new hip pain (since May - before weight-loss began), Dr. can't figure out what's going on - suggested Physio... @Minitata that's a great suggestion - going to see about trying a pillow like that.
