Coming out in sympathy....??!!

Postby Liamo » Thu Jun 16, 2016 8:19 am

Hi everyone. Hope your days are well. My question is this....
Does anyone find that they come out in sympathy for loved ones by experiencing the same pain that they do?
I have had excruciating pain in my right hip for over 2 years. In fact it was this that lead to finally being diagnosed late last year. At the same time my mum has been waiting to get a hip replacement. This happened yesterday and since then I've had no pain at all inside my hip. In fact my legs are moving almost normally again with full stride and NO pain. Is this real? Can I simply have been sympathising with my mum??
Has anyone else experienced something similar??

That's interesting. I haven't experienced this myself but I do believe it can happen if the person is a close relative or friend. I'm glad you have some relief, enjoy it[SMILING FACE WITH SMILING EYES]
