I think I overdid the exercise. My lift hipbone hurts like **** when I put any weight on it. It feels... I don't know, it makes me feel old. I stopped skipping because it hurt too much (haven't skipped in three days) and walking anywhere is such a pain... What can I do about it? I don't think I can stand to sit it out. It's quite a familiar pain, I used to have it in my knees and the osteopath told me to take it easy for a while, I had been abusing my knees. And last summer I also got this hip pain... But not this bad. It's not a muscle pain... It feels like the bones are rubbing, as if tehre were sand in between them. I won't go to any sort of medical professional.. So do any of you haev any suggestions? I woulod appreciate anything :)

Today I almost got my crutches out haha after dinner I was limping so badly...

Honey, if you are having pain that's not muscle-strain related, and it's interfering with your quality of life, going to a doctor is important. I'm not sure why you say you won't go, and I KNOW what a pain it can be to deal with the Medical Establishment, but ... your health and well-being are more important, aren't they? What if this is a problem that will only get worse with time without treatment?

Whatever your issues are about seeing a medical professional, I hope you'll reconsider in the interest of your long-term health and mobility, not to mention the current pain you are experiencing.

well i had PE today and it didn't hurt too much because i've staying off it. The doctors and most medical proffesionals around here arae incompetent small town people with nothing to do all day so thet treat people for things they don't have. I'm actually not exaggerating. I was two kilos heavier than I am now when they kept me in hospital for a week for anorexia, based on what my friends said. Never midn my family who thinks I'm fat, and I eat too much. Trust my friends... ugh lol sorry haha

I am hoping it will go go away if i just let it alone for another day. If not, I'll deal with it. I'm surprisingly good with pain, I've had a lot of it in my life, mwahaha.

Hullo there Hoof! How tall are you? Your current weight seems quite low (52 kg = 114 lbs) and your goal weight is very low (46 kg = 101lbs). Have you considered strength training to change/improve your shape?

I know what you mean about medics. Is it possible to find someone else you 'click' with?

Do stay with us. There's loads of support around on this site.

Hoof, my boyfriend in HS had a problem with his ankle. He hated doctors and refused to get medical attention for it. He thought it would go away, but it didn't. Last I heard, he was in his 30s and will be limping for life. You really should get this checked out...if there is something wrong with the bones, it isn't something that will go away on its own. Please take gentle care of yourself, okay? :grouphug:

Take some time out Hoofy!

You are 15 years old, sound like you are working at fitness like a demon, and are not really overweight - although I know that that won't sound right to you!

What you really need to do is listen to your body, it can be your best friend as far as exercise is concerned. If it hurts for more than 2 days, take it to a doctor - any doctor! Tell the doc what you are doing, how you think you got injured and how long it has hurt, even think of inventive ways to describe the pain, so's they get a good idea what you are going through!

I am sorry you don't feel well supported at home, or feel any confidence in the doctors in your area. It does sound odd that at 54 kilos, 119lbs or 8st 7lbs, you were hospitalised for anorexia, perhaps, as you hint, there is much more to this story, or you are very, very tall!!!

Perhaps we on 3FC could help boost your morale a bit. Let us know how your pain is and whether you have been to a doctor.

Bets wishes,

LIke I said, the doctors around here are incompetent bored people who have nothing better to do than listen to a bunch of teenagers talking abou their friend (namely me)'s eating habits and hospitalize her.

I am 166 cm tall.

The pain is gone. it still hurts a litle when I jump down from somewhere high... but nothing serious.

Hoof -- Have you spoken to a councellor at your school? Or gone to a clinic for young adults? They have those in our rather smallish town... Maybe they can recommend a doctor... Are you eating sensibly? Like not too much junk, lots of veggies, protein, fruits, milk products for your growing bones?

Please take care of your body you will be stuck with it for a very long time, it's the only one you have...

bone pain in someone as young as you is NOT to be taken lightly. as the others have said, you are a little person - as in short, and quite lightweight. please take care of your bones. ilene is right - nutrient-dense foods are the best, especially if you're watching your intake. and maybe easing up on the exercise, or at least varying it so that you don't overwork one area.

at 166 cm, we'd consider you to be 5'5" tall, and the so-called 'ideal weight' for a woman of that height is about 125 pounds. so, at 114 pounds, you're a bit underweight for your height - not enough to worry your friends. but at your goal of 101 pounds? hmmmm.

hoof, what would you say to someone in this situation?

Hoof, I agree with Jiffy. Your friends may have overreacted, but your goal weight is way too low to be healthy for a woman your height. Restricting your foods and working out too hard at this age can impact you for the rest of your life.

Hon, every doctor in your town can't be that bad...there must be at least one good one that you can trust. Can you ask a friend to see who he or she goes to? The pain may be gone right now, but that doesn't mean there is nothing wrong. :( Please take care of yourself, okay? :grouphug:

Hmm. My friends talked to the school counsellor about me, she talked to me. She told all my teachers about my current situation with my parents. my form tutor told my mother, I had to lie to her for weeks. ( So much for confidential).

By the way when they hospitalized me I was 50 kilos, not 54. I said 2 kilos more than now, I meant less. Sorry bout that. It is still not a weight low enough to worry anyone.


About eating properly: I don't eat junk, but I do drink diet coke and chew a lot of gum. I get enough fruit and veg, probably not enough protein, and milk and other dairy products give me excema. I know I didn't spell that right.


About the bone pain, I have abused my body in many ways in the past. The osteopath said to me I was the least flexible teenager he had met in his 30 years of working as an osteopath, Two of my cervical vertebraes have some weird calcification thing going on, My coccix is slightly out of alignment with the rest of my body due to a riding accident when I was eight, at one point i had bad knees. That's just the bones.
My whole family has anemia so it's logical that I should have it too, but I refuse to have a blood test becacause of my unreasonable fear of needles (I have also missed a few injections because of this). I don't take my magnesium and zinc pills my mother says I should take because of my vegetarian diet.
I self injure, be it hitting myself or cutting and burning myself, silly things like that.
I have a jaw on the brink of dislocation, apparently due to a heredetary disorder where I clench my jaw in my sleep to relieve stress, and was forbidden by the specialist to: have chocoalte, cheese and caffeine after midday, not eat things like apples, nuts, hard candies or anything that could put unecessary stress on my jaw, give "little kisses", if I smoke not to smoke, etc.
I have terirble insomnia which apparently worsens the jaw thing.
I could but won't go on because it sounds like I'm just fishing for attention or soemthing like that. Basically what I meant is I don't take very good care of my body, and I will only live once and would rather leave a pretty carcass than a healthy one. I know it sounds reckless, and immature, but when we die we are forever percieved the way we were when we died. I don't want to die ugly and be forever ugly.

I guess I just want to fix the outside, because the inside is harder to repair. I won't go to a doctor, and that's the main reason I joined these forums. I know I should be eating healthier and that's what I'm trying... But being a teenager... I don't know. It seems far more appealing to do what I used to do; lose weight quickly ad unhealthily than take care of myself and maybe not get the kind of weight loss that I want.

My goal of 101 pounds: It isn't a strict goal. If I am happy with myself before I reach my goal I will stop losing weight. I only set this goal because it seemed doable, not too thin, not too fat. I am finding it harder to lsoe wieght this time though.


WOW I ramble so much... ever so sorry. If you've read this far, congratulate yourslef with a cookie or something :) or... you know, a piece of fruit.

Hoofs,

I have a question to you - are you able to provide medical support for yourself in a year or two? Because you highly likely will need it and I am not sure if 17 y.o. at that time is able to do it. You basically are slowly killing yourself by not providing yourself with nutrients your body requires to survive. The point is - you will not look great when the consequences will kick in - not beeing able to walk is the first sign - what are you going to do than? You will not be able to keep you beautiful body if you can not move!

Go see a doctor - I am not your mother but my daughter is 15 and I know what I am talking about. You need good nutrients, healthy diet and specialist to look at your hip!

Hmm. My friends talked to the school counsellor about me, she talked to me..
How long ago has this been? I hope this doesn't sound preachy or condescending, but sometimes the people around us see what we can't see for ourselves. I'm 43 years old, a mother, and a new grandmother. I've done so many things in my life so far, many were wonderful, and plenty were just plain stupid. Hardly a day goes by that I don't think back to recent or long ago events and say "If only I'd known then, what I know now". It's human nature to make mistakes, to misinterpret things, to convince ourselves that nothing is wrong when there clearly is something very wrong. We don't always see it, but the people that love us, do. If all of your friends and teachers are worried about you, then they must have a good reason. People don't make that kind of thing up. They just don't.


I guess I just want to fix the outside, because the inside is harder to repair. I won't go to a doctor, and that's the main reason I joined these forums.

You are very young right now, and you are right that you need to take care of yourself. I think it's really GREAT that you are concerned about nutrition and health and are taking the extra step to learn more about it. A lot of the women here are not trying to lose weight, but learning to maintain, which also takes effort. I still think that is your best bet, to maintain and not lose any more weight. Maintaining your current weight or even gaining a few pounds has a better chance of improving your health than losing even a few pounds. And there's no rush! Maintain now, work on getting healthier first (even if it means gaining a few pounds) and if you are unhappy with your shape or size later, then see a nutritionist or other professional that can help you out. I don't think excess weight is really an issue right now.



My goal of 101 pounds: It isn't a strict goal. If I am happy with myself before I reach my goal I will stop losing weight. I only set this goal because it seemed doable, not too thin, not too fat. I am finding it harder to lsoe wieght this time though.
.

Why did you pick a goal of 101? That would make you underweight, which would make you weak, probably cause more health problems down the road. I think a lot of young girls become fixated on the numbers and not their bodies. To be honest, if you are not happy with your body now, I don't think you will be happy with your body at 110, 105, or 101. Maybe it's becoming harder to lose weight because you don't have anything left to lose, other than your muscles or organs. Didn't you mention in another post that you were interested in exercise, because you thought your thighs were flabby? If you keep losing weight (muscle) then you'll never get those firm thighs. Exercise will firm you up and give you the body I think you want, but you will have to eat more to support it. Plus if you build muscle, you may not get larger in size, but may see the scales go up because muscle weighs more than fat. It's very normal :)

We really want to see you improve your health, get fit, and be happy on the inside :) You'd be surprised how many people here care about you!

eek... i typed a reply to this but it's gone!! gone...

herm. I may type it out again later, it was pretty long..

thanks guys, for the words and help and supposrt and all that jazz. This place is great.

basically all I said in the last post was I flat out refuse to stay at my current weight. I would consider maintaining at 48 kilos. But right now... I can barely look at myself in the mirror without feeling like I'm ready to die. I know I sound melodramatic and superficial.. .I mean there's more to us than our bodies. I know that. But how we look on the outside can change how we feel. I'll shut up now. I am sure tehre aws some other important point in that reply.. can't think of it.

Oh, to answer your question, I'm not ENTIRELY sure why i picked 101. I was 46 kilos when my life started going wrong (or i started realising). Yes, i was a couple of years younger and cms shorter. but.. i don't know. That could be part of the reason.

Morning hoof! Sounds as though you're doing pretty well with a lot of food. About eating properly: I don't eat junk
Excellent!

I do drink diet coke and chew a lot of gum.
Fair enough.

I get enough fruit and veg
Also excellent.

probably not enough protein
Any ideas about how to eat more? I'm a cottage cheese fanatic, myself, but I know that's not for everyone. I also love fish, especially oily fish, full of essential fatty acids. Peanut butter? I know some people think it's the work of the devil but I'm not so sure.

milk and other dairy products give me excema. I know I didn't spell that right.
Bad luck. Ecxema (is that spelling any better? No, I don't think so. Terrible word) is no fun. What about soy products? I quite like tofu and I keep meaning to try soy milk. I gather some of it is OK.

Keep up the good food work. Perhaps see if you could build it up in a small way. Step by step.

Oh, and keep on posting.

Love, Silverbirch.
