Hello i am new on here and would like to know if there is any one with the autoimmune disease called Lichen Sclerosis. Currently i am having problems getting out of bed, my hips seem stiff and very painfull, i have to physically use my hands to roll my hips into a side position then walk my hands up to a sitting position but cant put full weight for sitting position so i have to use my arms as a holding posture and wait at least 5 minutes before i can then i try to stand up and it takes effort, When i try to feed the cats,( bowls on floor) i cant bend down because of the pain in hips. It takes me an hour before i can really move. Lying on the floor and doing exercises for the back doesnt work. What could it be, it comes and goes in the mornings only after sleeping sometimes it wakes me in the night because i cant turn over. during the day im fine just achy. Is it part and parcel of the LS. or should i get it checked out.
