Oops, I did it again

Last night in bed something popped on my right thigh. I was trying to turn on my side to get more comfortable, which isn’t easy to do, so I was awake and aware. There was a sharp stabbity pain in the upper thigh near the groin area and something popped. Not good, my friends. It reminds me of December when I felt something similar on the left side, except that was harder to pinpoint. I managed to get out of bed and took something for pain, then sat down in the lift chair with an ice pack.

I can stand up without pain, which is a blessing, but moving the leg is a big problem, and I’m not expecting to be able to get back into the bed tonight. Getting dressed was a challenge, especially putting my shoes on. I think the idea of putting on AFO’s and walking today with my brother is off the table, since I can barely take a few steps to go from the wheelchair to a regular chair. I’ve messaged my doctor through MyChart to let her know what’s going on, but I’m pretty sure this is just muscle and there’s nothing they can do about it. Just anti-inflammatories, pain management, and ice, which helps with both. Then gentle stretching and making up lost ground.

It’s always something, right?
