I exercise 4-5 times weekly alternating step aerobics, weights, and zumba usually in the late evenings as that is the only time the classes are offered. Lately at night I wake up with pain in both hips, severe enough so that I don't sleep well. I thought it was the Tempurpedic mattress, that we have had for 3 months, but have the same pain sleeping on other mattresses. The pain radiates down both legs sometimes feeling better by noon. I am 63 and have exercised for 1 1/2 years and am seeing results, but the pain is causing me to rethink how much I should be exercising considering I don't feel rested the next day. There is no pain during or after exercise only when I go to bed and within a few minutes after sleeping on my side the pain begins. View Thread
Sorry it's a long story Hi I'm only 27 yrs old I use to be a happy 220-240lb and currently at my highest 317.9lbs. For almost 3yrs now I've been living in debilitating pain since my gallbladder removal surgery (to which 2pa nurses have said it's probly scar tissue cutting off not only circulation but attaching to organs, which can happen I hear). I had a doctor who when I advised wks after surgery of the pain he told me I was FAT go loose weight. With out direction I went hard core into walking, weights and several other things but mostly my ab lounger would do over 100 reps in it in a day. The pain got way worse and ended up in the ER with high liver levels and white blood cell count (they also determined im not pregnant and have a gallbladder and their the ones who took it out). I later found out a yr later when I was heavily gaining weight I had that was to but ended up way slow after radiation pills. I am desperately seeking help, my stress is thru the roof. I have absolutely no energy and problems sleeping. I hate eating it makes me nauseated so now I wont eat and I've had a life long problems with dehydration. My new doctor said my thyroid meds are wrong (and he wont change them), my red AND white blood cells are both high (he said 10x's higher than they should be). And for weight loss he gave me phentermine which conflicts severely with 2 of my anti-depressants (including coma and death, no thanks) this medicine is also a appetite suppressant I already don't want to eat and will go for as long possible without food (which is wheaties or a peanut butter sandwich). I am desperately seeking any help, it's like I'm just turning into an episode of my 600lb life and no one cares (except my mother who is about as wrecked by this as me). I need to loose this weight and fix my levels and seriously have this pain removed because no person should live in this pain (which I compare to my live (they forgot to medicate me n told me shut) trans-jugular liver biopsy, thats the pain everyday all day. my upper right abdomen skin changes colors and temperature and twitches all on it's own.
please please please can anyone help me advice or a cure something pleaseView Thread

I was born with flat feet and have used orthopedics ever since my mother took me to a foot doctor as a kid. However, I've read a lot of convincing material that suggests orthopedics aren't that helpful - they're just a way for foot doctors to get you to spend money at their establishment.
For those of you with flat feet, do you run with orthopedics? If not, have you encountered any issues (rolling ankles, pain, etc.)?View Thread
