Baybreeze yes that pressure feeling thats it exactly. I was telling Doug about it and I said it is the weirdest sensation, I just want to jab something in that area to relieve it, don't worry I won't though. I think I am going to ask for a shot when I see my PM. I sort of remember have this same pain in my hip before surgery. I hope that having the pain back isn't a bad sign. Pepper, all the meds I take are ones that I've been on for LOL forever! I take morphine, zanaflex lorazepam and levothyroxine. I suppose since my thyroid has been off that could be a reason for the pain. They say when your thyroid is off it effects every system in your body because it supplies hormones to keep your body in balance. I am feeling a little better today, I went out to karaoke with some friends and a few cocktails (didn't take any pain meds except in the morning) and sang 5 or 6 songs. I had forgotten how good it feels to go out and play now and then! It has been over a year since I went out.
