Hello everyone, I havn't been here for a while and when I popped on recently I was surprised to not find any threads on Hip Pain. My doctor told me what I was experiencing was normal, but I know that with the degree of pain I am getting from my hips that if someone else was feeling the same surely they would have posted about it. I get hip pain to the point of jolts of agony that burst through my body. Sitting down: Getting in to the sitting position from a stand up is probably the easiest thing to do. Getting up.. can be extremely painful and can take several tries and/or a much longer period of time than anyone else I am around. Walking: It is on and off. Depending on if I am going up stairs or not, the pain can be very bad. I look like I am limping around and often feel rather pathetic. Lol When in bed: This is one of the worst. I cannot roll over from one hip to the other, or shift position at all without using as much upper body strength as possible by grabbing the head board to assist me in the movement. If hubby is getting out of bed and accidentally hits one of my feet it can be so painful that my back arches and lifts me right off of the mattress- my muscles all get rigid and I have to bite my lips to keep from screaming. Getting dressed: Well, pants & underwear are nearly impossible at time, and very frustrating as I cannot individually lift one leg while putting all my weight on the other. once again, for this, it is on and off. Sometimes I can do it great but on most occassions it hurts really bad. As for socks.. well.. i do not ever even try anymore. That is now hubbies official job. lol Doctor told me that it is the stretching of my ligaments and that it is 100% normal. he said to take Tylenol for the pain.. but no ammount I feel safe taking can even put a dent in how I feel. Honestly, I have had the hip pain before 17 weeks along (It seems like so long ago though and I cant remember how much earlier it started.) and I am so used to it that once the pain is gone, I act as thought nothing happened. I mean.. it is for the miracle we have always wanted, and I would go through agony for this baby (Oh wait.. I will be- its called childbirth! lol) I was just wondering if anyone else out there was experiencing hip pain?
