So there is a little back story
Back when I was a little lass, fresh and new to this world I had my left leg on backwards. I had braces they were little shoes with bars in between my feet to straighten my leg out. SURPRISE! It worked. I dont walk funny and honestly unless I told you about it you would never know.....I had those braces for years. Learned to crawl, climb and walk with those things on.
Fast forward 19 years. I was starting to have considerable pain in my left knee (remember the cosmetic was fixed, my bones are pretty much twisted all the way up), I went to the Dr (who has been my Dr now on and off for the last 16 years and he just retired) and he had advised me that all girls are knock knee'd but only between 0 and 6 degrees (from where your femur and tibia connect) I was at 16 degrees. Lots of physical therapy getting my thigh muscles strong enough to support the problem.
Now at the age of 35 I am at 21 degrees..yes it is slowly getting worse.
Well during Christmas I could hardly get out of bed. I hurt so much. My back, my hips, my knees and my ankles and even sometimes my toes. I just want to die. I very rarely sleep in my bed (on the couch) because of the fact I dont want to go down the stairs to do it. I cant lay on my sides because it hurts my hips. I cant lay on my stomach or back because it hyper extends my knees. Ive been this way now since. Hard headed about going to the Drs.
I called the Dr's finally on Monday and they cant get me in until tomorrow. Here is a script for Percaset. I hate taking pills. I hate taking narcotics. After I had a c-section with my daughter, appendix surgery and kidney stones I too 800 MG of Motrin. I just cant focus on the heavy stuff but I have got to get rid of this pain!
Im 35 years old. I should not feel like this. I hurt from my toes to mid back. Chiropractors wonder how I walk (duh one foot in front of the other?) and they can do nothing for me. It sometimes hurts to put my hands on my hips, its just that sensitive.
So here I am under a heating pad, percs in hand.
Tomorrow can not get here fast enough.
