Pain is a great motivator! For months I have been dealing with pretty significant hip pain. Physical therapy hardly touches it.

Make sure your doctor does a blood test for TSH...thyroid. Being post-Graves Disease (HYPERthyroidism) for 35 years, I know that when my TSH runs below normal (HYPOthyroidism) that my bones ache terribly. The connection is that when the doc ups the dosage, the aching arthritis goes away.
