Pardon Me but my A** is Killing Me | Arthritis Information



 Theres just no other way to describe my flippin behind.

 This dont feel like Fibro and i've only had osteo in my fingers so far. This hurts from skin to the bone with maybe some nerves involved. I can't really tell. i'm trying real hard not to use the pain patch cause i get so nauseated but i'm about to the end of my rope. its so depressing to hurt all the blessed time! I am so sorry you all suffer so much and get hardly any relief. Your all so brave and i'm such a whiner. I know from the sound of things most of you are in a lot worse shape than i am. Thanks for listening to my vent, again ,and hope you all see brighter days ahead. Somethings got to give for us all.  At least most of you have a great sense of humor and make me laugh out loud all the time. I LOVE THAT


Ow ow ow!!! That REALLY sounds like a nerve being pinched. OW again! Get that checked out!!! Ow...........ow ow ow........ It sounds like how I feel when I have problems with sciata, which is what Katie mentioned, a pinched nerve.  Hope you get help soon.

Sorry you hurt. I hope you can get it resolved soon.

You know what I hate? I hate when my right hip feels like someone has jabbed something in it and then the pain runs down to my right knee and back up to my hip and then before it is over it is running back and forth from my hip to my knee to my ankle. Now that is the pits!

But a pinched nerve I am sure is more of the pits. At least mine goes away when I take something for the pain, well sometimes, or dulls the pain.

Yes, that sounds like sciatica pain. I have it too, on and off. The pain starts in the very low part of the back and shoots all the way down the leg. So painful!! Google "sciatica" and you'll find exercises and stretches. Hope you feel better soon!


  Thank you ladies,I don't know what this is it feels really weird. I had a pinched nerve in between my ribs when i was in my early twentys but i dont remember how it felt,i know they blocked it with a shot and it away immediately. Stupid GP had me almost in sugery for gall bladder but the surgeon said it was pinched nerve.LOL

 Joonie, i'm having some shooting pain from knee down my shin bone to one toe. How freaky is that??? Oh and some pains run behind my knee too. UUUGGGHHH!

  Mary, This hurts in the middle of my cheek, is sciatica a nerve in your butt? What do you do for it? It feels like the bone is on fire.

I only know the symptoms because I have had it before

Sciatic pain usually starts in the buttocks and extends down the rear of the thigh and lower leg to the sole of the foot and along the outer side of the lower leg to the top of the foot. Pain may also be present in the lower back.

here is a good link


 Thanks Mary read the article and was surprised to find that a herniated disc in the lower back is usually the culprit in sciatica. Lower back pain has been my biggest source of nearly constant pain for years. Very interesting. This will go in my handy dandy notebook too, to take to the dr.

Moana - if you do have sciatica, physical therapy is a very successful way to treat that.

Good luck.

sounds a lot like sciatica to me.  I had it for a couple of years a while back.  I thought it was my heel, a spur or something.  No it was from the sciatic nerve.  The pain was unbelievable.  Physio was the best thing for it but it was a lot of hard work and took time.   Some easy stretches are the best way to alleiviate the problem, something simple like lying on your back and bending the knee of the leg that hurts til you can grab it and just give it a gentle squeeze to your chest.  If that relieves the pain then if will be sciatica.


 Well let me tell ya what i did last night, i laid on a Shiatzu machine. Its for neck and back massage but i have always felt it to strong for that and it i laid it in my bed and laid on the sorest spot on my butt and let me tell ya it hurt like the devil but i kept doing it for a good hour or so, moving it around every so often. It has helped tremendously!! Yippee! I can sit on both "cheeks" now in a soft shair, the toilet still hurts because its to hard. At least i don't have that throbbing pain this morning just sore . The groin area to my knee still hurts like fire though.Right after that I asked my 2 year old to do something and she told me she couldn't.  I asked her why and she said "my back hurts". 

I had sciatic problems while preggo with my son who is now 14. Be careful walking because your legs could just quit on you. That's what happened to me several times and it wasn't fun. Usually my hubby would catch me, thank God, or it would have been nasty!

Good luck and take care


 Well i'm going to the Dr tomorrow if my hubby has his way.This stuff is just traveling from one place to the next. I wish it would get to where its going soon and STOP!
