Bless you both!
I'm glad you have been able to drop the NSAIDS, I'm not a fan.I was taking ibuprofen (part of the same group as diclofenac) and firstly, it didn't really help and secondly, the drug I had to take to mitigate the side effects had its own side effects.
This coupled with not sleeping well could certainly be the reason you are feeling so drained. I just had some major work done on my house and it was probably one of the most stressful months I have ever experienced.Some have suggested stress as we have been virtually living on a building site since May and it's been awful
I found new hips (and yes it is still new) hate lifting any weight. Build up gradually but do keep trying. For me I suddenly "turned a corner" with lifting or pushing/pulling any weight.I struggle to lift anything more than a few pound because it gives me hip pain
