Lady Gaga Opens Up About Hip Pain

After watching her amazing performance at Super Bowl LI, we would have never guessed that Lady Gaga has constant hip pain.  In the new issue of Arthritis Magazine she opened up about her ailments.

Gaga is the Spring 2017 Cover Girl and she discusses how she manages her condition.  The article is titled “Hip pain can’t stop me” and she speaks about her career-threatening injury and why she’ll “never ignore joint pain again.”

On a recent Instagram post, Gaga wrote: “I was so overwhelmed by the empathy, confessions & personal stories of chronic pain in response to my previous post I thought what the hell. Maybe I should just share some of my personal remedies I’ve acquired over the past five years. Everyone’s body and condition is different U should consult w ure Dr. but what the heck here we go! When my body goes into a spasm one thing I find really helps is infrared sauna.”

While Arthritis Magazine may not be the most glamorous cover to be on, fans and arthritis sufferers alike appreciate her openness.  We’re glad Gaga was able to share her story, in hopes of helping others.  If you’ve got pain, it might just get you to make an appointment with your doctor.

I was so overwhelmed by the empathy, confessions & personal stories of chronic pain in response to my previous post I thought what the hell. Maybe I should just share some of my personal remedies I've acquired over the past five years. Everyone's body and condition is different U should consult w ure Dr. but what the heck here we go! When my body goes into a spasm one thing I find really helps is infrared sauna. I've invested in one. They come in a large box form as well as a low coffin-like form and even some like electric blankets! You can also look around your community for a infrared sauna parlor or homeopathic center that has one. I combine this treatment with marley silver emergency blankets (seen in the photo) that trap in the heat and are very cheap, reusable and effective for detox as well as weight loss! In order to not overheat my system and cause more inflammation i follow this with either a VERY cold bath, ice bath (if u can stand it, it's worth it) or the most environmentally savvy way is to keep many reusable cold packs in the freezer ( or frozen peas' n carrots'!) and pack them around the body in all areas of pain. Hope this helps some of you, it helps me to keep doing my passion, job and the things I love even on days when I feel like I can't get out of bed. Love you and thank you for all your positive messages.
