Just popping in to say Hi! I had a lovely birthday yesterday...the very first one without birthday cake! No body complained, so hey!
And...actually, it's not my knee that hurts. I don't know if it's a pinched nerve or what...(very frustrating!). When I drive or sleep, the top of my calf and the bottom of my thigh (back of my leg) just aches...like somebody punched me there. It is most painful in the driving position. I can do weights ok, but running, racquetball and aerobics irritate it (mostly when I bend it alot). After it's irritated, it's very painful to pull my ankle up to my butt. If I have to drive very far, the pain about brings me to tears. I spent over an hour in physical therapy. It felt better...until I got in the car. Less than a block away, it started hurting again. It feels better if I get up and walk around on it. Rubbing it doesn't help. No pain killers (Tylenol, Motrin, etc.) have helped. Two nights ago I had to take sleeping pills (3 times) to get me through the night.
Has anyone else had this kind of pain? I've been to a regular doctor, a chiropractor and a physical therapist. It just seems to be getting worse! Maybe my body is rebelling for lack of sugar! haha
