I have been doing really well in my rehab, finding my hip is actually better than my poor knees. I had an x-ray on my left knee as it has been so sore. The good news is that the OA has not deteriorated in the last 2 years, which means the pain is more likely to be from over-using it when both my right hip and right knee were a problem added to a fall I had on the knee 3 months ago ( the skin there is still numb).On Friday, I felt that nearly all my muscles were sore and wondered if I was flaring. I have taken it easy for the last 2 days and the pain is easing but still there- neck and shoulders, thighs,lower back , pelvis and both thumbs. My sleep has been disturbed by all this too which is usually a sign of a flare.It was the latter that made me think this might all be a result of my doing more- this was the first week I was back driving and so I did a lot more than in previous weeks. Also on Wednesday evening, I stood on my crutches on a steep slope for a couple of hours. That could account for a lot, especially my thumbs being sore! ( I do have OA in my hands too).
Luckily, I am seeing the physio on Wednesday and the Rheumy on Friday, so will hopefully be clearer. If it is a flare then Rheumy can give me a depo shot as it is my daughter's wedding on Saturday week and I am going to need all my strength for that!
