My arthritis is kicking in now that it’s getting colder and I’m in some considerable pain. The next few months are going to be long. I think it’s worse when it’s cold and rainy (like now and last night). I should keep better track of this but I don’t.

Last night it was my left knee. I was in some major pain no matter what I did. The only thing that gave me any relief was stretching it or putting direct pressure on certain spots around the knee joint itself. I eventually had to sleep it off, but getting to sleep was a task in of itself. I was ready to amputate the whole leg off.

Right now my left hip is bothering me. It isn’t so bad. Mostly just annoying at the moment.

My doctor had me taking Ibuprofen for it. Then again he had me taking that for everything. Now that I’m needing to get a new doctor I’m going to try and get something preventative or stronger for pain. The Ibuprofen can only do so much.
