I've been posting about my shoulder; it seems to be on the right track to healing whatever's wrong with it. Keep my fingers crossed on that.
I didn't sleep well last night and I seemed to have some pain in my hip flexor or right at the top of my left thigh. I kept waking up in some discomfort. I got up in the morning and went about my day. I've been at my desk and this terrible shooting pain keeps coming back in that very top of thigh / hip flexor area. The more I sit, the worse it is. I am planning to go for a walk, although it's quite windy and cold today. This shooting pain is just agonizing when it comes. It's almost like someone is stabbing me in the hip flexor!
I don't recall injuring it. I am active and have been active for the most part as of late. I'm about 5'9" and 160lbs and consider myself to be in pretty good shape for a 53-year old. But these strange and sometimes debilitating ailments / injuries seem to come out of nowhere. I went for a run on Saturday, did a cardio / body weight strength workout and rode the stationary bike yesterday. Neither was too exhausting.
I hate going to the doctor for something like this because it probably won't help! And who knows, maybe the pain will be gone by the time I visit a doctor.
FYI... Prior to having total colectomy surgery in the summer of 2000, I was on Prednisone for about 7.5 years (at times heavy doses 40-50mg). For the past 20 years, I have been taking 360mg of codeine daily to deal with my digestive tract. So, there are those drugs hanging over me and you never know what kinds of things they can do to one's body...
Any suggestions as to what this could be?
