    pain in hips
    An_258194 posted:
    I exercise 4-5 times weekly alternating step aerobics, weights, and zumba usually in the late evenings as that is the only time the classes are offered. Lately at night I wake up with pain in both hips, severe enough so that I don't sleep well. I thought it was the Tempurpedic mattress, that we have had for 3 months, but have the same pain sleeping on other mattresses. The pain radiates down both legs sometimes feeling better by noon. I am 63 and have exercised for 1 1/2 years and am seeing results, but the pain is causing me to rethink how much I should be exercising considering I don't feel rested the next day. There is no pain during or after exercise only when I go to bed and within a few minutes after sleeping on my side the pain begins.

    To start with, I'd try gentle stretching after your workouts, if you don't do it already. Also, try putting a pillow between your knees to support your hip. Sometimes that can really help pinched nerves and such.

    Three keys to avoid joint pain as I approach 60.
    1. Plant-dominant diet
    2. Daily stretching and walking
    3. Water, water, then, more water!
