I'm not homicidal. Yet.

I've had some pain in my hip for a wee while. Physio said she thought it was a spur maybe, or perhaps just some inflammation of the stuff covering the ball joint.

I have done my exercises. My posterior chain is rocks now, my hips are good. But the pain persists. So next week, I have an x-ray happening, as my GP suspects it is arthritis. That would be... fucking annoying and no mistake. I would have to bring my plans forward by a year – or perhaps, perhaps, abandon them entirely in the worst case.

But I won't know for a good few weeks yet. All I do know is, it hurts. And the way the brain works, of course, I am assuming the worst.

Anyway, I just thought I would share.

  1. I hope it isn't arthritis - in my experience, the last place I had pain was in my hip, when mine went crumbly, it was everywhere else first. All the same, if it is, it's the easiest joint to replace with the best outcome. And I staved off my first hip op with lots of non-weightbearing exercise and some weight loss.
