Pain that comes with Myasthenia Gravis...

I started having pain yesterday evening in my right hip...I woke up in the night with excruciating pain that made me sick to my tummy. :(  That continued into this morning and I in desperation took 1/2 of a Vicodin.  It took the edge off...

My muscles are weak due to the Myasthenia Gravis...My joints are loose because my muscles aren't always strong enough to hold them tight.  So my right hip ended up with bursitis again for the 2nd time in 10 yrs...It's a terrible pain.  Mind you, I am very thankful that it's only the second time for the hip pain in 10 yrs, but I do suffer with pain on a daily basis, but mildly with the other joints and muscles.  I am going to take it easy this afternoon and see if I can't get the inflammation down.  But, too much rest is not good either as my muscles will get weaker and atrophy with too much rest. :(

This is just some of the fun that comes with Myasthenia Gravis.  I have been blessed for quite some time to not have the complications of difficulty swallowing and breathing.  Those things have been better. :)  I can deal with weakness and pain even though it's frustrating at times.  I'd rather swallow and breathe. ;)

This cold weather is doing a number on me, too.  I am desperately waiting for the spring warmth to come over me and wrap me up like a soft blanket.  Me and cold do NOT get along very well. :(  Hoping for warmer weather SOON! :)
