So I've had weeks and weeks of severe hip that had been keeping me awake at night. I'd gotten it somewhat under control with a combination of TENS heat stretching and muscle rub (a very long bedtime routine), but it was still a daily problem. Then I got a bad chest cold, complete with that all-over-my-skin-hurts feeling. As soon as the cold got really bad and uncomfortable, my hip pain magically disappeared. It's like the brain has to send pain signals somewhere and as soon as something new hurts it can let up on the old spot. It reminds me of an old pattern I used to go through, where I'd have a crushing migraine for weeks, and just when I thought I couldn't take it anymore, it would lift and I'd think, thank goodness, only for the pain to start in my back. I'd have that for a few weeks and then it would switch back ot my head. Crazy making!!!!!
