Hello Zita.

I am suffering from pain that seems to go from hip to knee, to heel.

The doctor gave me pain killers and Volterol cream. I have found that the volterol works well on its own.

Meanwhile try lying on your left side with a pillow between your legs supporting your your right leg from hip to ankle. It may take a bit of fidgeting about to find the right place to lie.

Oh and i put the cream on my hip.

See your Gp if its still playing up in a couple of days it may not be the same as mine.

Hugs Sue :)


Sue's tip about the pillow is good as that is exactly what I do and it does give a bit of relief as it stops the pressure being on the one area. Yes I get the same periodically it comes as mysteriously as it goes and I just ride the storm out by putting cream on, trying to gently stretch the limb affected and resting a bit more than usual. Hope it eases soon but if it gets worse I think a trip to the docs might be called for. Soft hugs.x

Put some pillows under your knees it seems to help. A heating pad will also help. I can't think straight so I will leave it up to others for now.

I am so genuinely sorry to read that and I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck. It is always advisable to discuss it with your GP or Medical Specialist if this issue does not go away or gets any worse for you. Please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you
