@sueinmn. Thank you so much for your advice. I have a big 10×14 ice pad. I have been icing after my walks. Will take a few days off… Not difficult since it's very hot here, then short distance for a while.

@fiesty76. Thank you. My hip has been bothering me for a while, but with covid, I waited until now. It's definitely not a walk in the park. The shot is yucky, hope it will help. Not looking for miracle, just a reduction in pain. I have spinal stenosis too, this combination is not easy. Will start the exercise routine tomorrow. Probably walk just a shorter distance for a while. I'm a fragile flower, hahahaha.

@becsbuddy. Just got back from orthopedic doctor for my hip pain. He moved my legs in directions i don't even know is possible, check my reflexes and declared my hip is in perfect condition no surgery needed. I have hip bursitis and S I joint dysfunction.. Got a cortisone shot and exercises to do at home. I have to cut down on my walking, maybe 20 to 30 minutes instead of the 45 minites walk in the morning until it gets better. Going back in 5 weeks. I'll be thinking of you when i walk. Get well, we are all sending positive thoughts your way!

@LeeAase.. I read that you can use sous vide to make yogurt. Wonder if anyone here has tried it. Both my children have sous vide and they use it for all kind of food, just not yogurt.

@avmcbellar. I had frozen shoulder few years ago, the orthopedic doctor said it could takeas long as a year to hral. Fortunately i know some really good PT and they got it working in a few months. They "defrosted" my shoulder! They don't accept my insurance so I had to pay cash, but they're worth every penny. Now i have problems with my hip. Last December the diagnosis was hip bursitis. I understand it's not something that heal easily either. I'm going to get a referral to ser orthopedic doctor to get a diagnosis and back to my PT again. Do these things ever end????

@jmb73. I'm sorry to heat about your husband's ordeal. I can relate. I have a family history of strokes and I am on meds for hypertension, which thank goodness, is under control. Occasionally my bp will spike up, bit never more than a day. Years ago I remember going to the ER because it was over 180, they gave me an injection of some sort and released me when it went down to 140. The doctor told me to stop taking my bp so often, anxiety raises bp. The other day my bp went up to 160/100, called my cardiologist, the doctor on call said to keep an eye on it and call back the next day if its still up there. He didn't seem too concern! The next day it was back to normal. I read somewhere that if you are taking a medication for high bp, it's better to take it at night. I'm really sensitive to meds so I have to space them out, I take 25 mg of Losartan in the morning, 25 at 2:30,and my 2.5 Amlodipine before I go to bed. I hope your husband will find the meds that will help him. Take care.
