I just discovered something new about my body! My hips have bugged me over the years, most notably after I started having kids. Within the last few months I have noticed that the deep ache in my hip joints comes and goes with no rhyme or reason; I could have the toughest workout ever and they feel fine while they hurt like crazy during an easy run. But now? I think I found the reason!
My sister Lori was over and we were comparing notes as we both have similar hip issues. She helped me realize that my hips hurt more during certain times of the month, like from ovulation right through to the first day of my period. WEIRD, HEY? I feel like I’m a super-ovulator. I often develop cysts after ovulation (one burst once–THAT was fun). It’s like during my fertile days, I ovulate from my eyelashes to my toes; I feel like an animal. So I guess all those hormones that cause the eggies to shoot out of my ovaries like baby missiles also cause my hips to loosen up just in case… you know. And when my hips get all loose then they hurt when I run.
Oh well, the culprits are pretty cute.
Anyone out there have cyclical pains? Do you get cysts?
