I have osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. I walk like a penguin because of my pain. So frustrated because I am so slow. I’m frustrated because I can’t do anything for very long because of the pain I’m tired of trying to do stuff and I can’t do it. Starting therapy soon. My doctor really thinks I need hip surgery. I will do whatever. I just want relief. I want my active life back. Hugs to everyone going through this.

      Ik the feeling hun. I hurt everywhere all the time. Most of what I got surgery can't fix. Been like this since 2008. I can't do much anymore. It's really depressing.

      Therapy may help you a lot if you have never had it! Exercise in general is good for you! Gotta keep the blood moving!

      Hi there. 🤗 sorry you're having so much pain. I have pain in my bum and L hip. I've had it for 10 years now. I finally got a diagnosis last year. I have gluteus tendonopathy with trochanteric bursitis. My friends who have had hip surgery have been very glad they did. And their recovery is amazingly fast. The surgery for mine is very specialized and has about a 4 month recovery. I finally found a surgeon who can do it but she wants to try everything else to heal it first.
