Something I've not actively shared with a lot of people, generally because I was living in fear of varying scales. .
I've been living in debilitating pain for a good amount of months...probably bordering over a year. The pain is making even the shortest of journeys excruciating, but because I am stubborn (not determined on this occasion) I carried on in pain, thinking it would pass.....it hasn't....did you go to the GP Emma I hear you ask....ermm no I didn't.
Yes I know I would have told others to get it checked out but I was in fear and in denial. You see ALL of my maternal line have hip joint problems...and virtually all of my maternal line have had hip replacements. Being that I am still in my 30's this pain creeping up this pain creeping up on me scared the crap out of me because I wasn't ready, I was prepared for it in the future, I was comfortable with it potentially being when I was older...but not now. .
Anyways I was doing some reflection on myself and what my energy was doing lately. My mood hasn't been amazing and I can't blame that all on shifting energies and solar storms, I've got to take some ownership 😂😂
What I've recognised is that my mood is dipping because I've stopped my usual exercise routine for fear of aggravating whatever it was, which has then caused weight gain which I do not like, I can't walk...I LOVE TO WALK, can't mooch around the woods and fields and replenish, can't take the dog for a walk, can't sleep on one side which brings on almost like a claustrophobia symptom and the biggest one IT BLOODY HURTS, like all the time. .
So I went for an X-ray and a physio appointment. Physio has said that my pelvis and hip flexor are weak so we are working to rectify this...unfortunately my X-ray confirmed arthritis in my hip joint...thanks maternal line. .
The positives, I know what I'm dealing with now! I can jump back into the exercise waggon as increased activity is good. I can source out natures any inflammatory goodies to help alongside my doctors advice...I've got a fairly good diet but it gives me the opportunity to increase my omega 3 foods and start incorporating more Tumeric, cinamon and ginger into my life....
