It's half term and we had planned to get away, but the osteoarthritis has stopped that. After seeing a consultant in August the pain has got worse. Did think it was all in my head but gp has added morphine patches to my pain management so I'm not going mad. Anyway on Sunday my hip locked up completely as I was pottering around the house and since then I can't get the pain under control hence the cancelled holiday.
Any advice I've tried all lotions and potions to rub in and take 4 prescription pain meds. Also tried hot and cold compresis, baths, swimming and Jacuzzis. Feeling very old, unless and keep crying and not looking forward to going back to work.
Sorry for the long moan, my husband doesn't know how to help, even though he's taken on most of the cooking, shopping and housework which I feel really guilty about. I'm on a very steep spiral into depression again.
I'll stop now otherwise this will just go on and on. P.S writing this has focused me. Time to put a stop to this, time to focus on good things in life.
