My primary pain is in my hip at the moment. Walking for more than a few minutes is awkward and uncomfortable and starts to then make my lower back ache. Registering with a physio today but how do you exercise and increase your fitness (to help the joints!) when your body is screaming at you to sit down all the time? I really need to lose weight, but walking & swimming are so painful I'm feeling really down because I feel powerless to build my strength up. Do I tank up on painkillers and 'just do it'?
