3 years ago, I decided to take up running. Never massively into fitness, I took things slow. I bought a treadmill, started running half a mile and slowly built it up to 3 miles, twice a week. After a year, I decided to do a 6 mile run. In order to get used to the outside conditions, I started running round the block. Within a few days of doing this, I found my hip was aching the next day and feeling very stiff.
The doctor put me on ibufren.. but its only masked the pain.. I went to physio.. they caused me even more pain by massaging it, and so sent me back to the doctor.. he gave me injections for Bursitis... and made me rest for months...
Now the pain is there all the time in both hips, my lower back, ribs are tender, and even gentle Yoga leaves me floored.
Bloods tests clear, I go to Reumatology... he made me touch my toes and told me I had Hypermobility...?? (YES literally, just like that!)
Does this sounds right?? Just like that he writes off my life?! Im 34! I cant go out and dance with the girls, I can lie on a hard floor on my side, I cant do gentle exercise??? Is that it, for life.. no way out?
PLEASE help? What can I do next?
