Hip To Be Square

Monday morning dawned bright and new, a beautiful way to start a week!  I had spent as much time as possible either in bed or in my "comfy" chair, attempting to take it easy on my hip.  It seemed to have an effect too, as moving around Pond Central caused no problems, no flareups, nothing like that.  I had no way of knowing that five hours later, I'd be sobbing in the break room at work, the pain having become too unbearable for anything else.


This morning I hauled myself out to the car and right to the nearby immediate care facility.  Once the doc came in and palpitated my thigh and hip, looking for sore spots... prod prod prod YEOWTCH prod prod prod... she put me in the hands of the x-ray techs, Torquemada and Vlad Tepes.   

The angles they wanted me to put my hip into were... hell, I might not have been able to do them even when my hip DIDN'T hurt.  And all of it on a hard, flat table that made my back scream.  I don't think they were enjoying themselves, but I can't be sure.

Finally, the doc came in with the results: the x-rays were all consistent for arthritis and small bone spurs.  Which was about the worst answer they could have given, because that doesn't go away.  So I'm stuck with this for now.  Whee.
