i'm 30 now and the pains are getting worse, lasting longer

ever since i was 13 i would get pains in my testicles, lower back, forearms, and shins

my mother always told me to just lay down, its growing pains.

back then, it'd only last 8 or nine hours with pain level starting at 4, going up to 8. i would actually pray to god to stop it.

the older i get, the more frequent this happens, and the longer it lasts. its been a week straight now, and it goes from a four to an eight NON STOP

i did go to the hospital last week, a shot of toradol cleared it right up so they were thinking some kind of inflamitory disease, he brought up juvenile rheumitoid arthritis. but told me to follow up with my primary but i dont see him till next week.

the pain radiates all over my lower body, like its very very cold in my bones. other than toradol, a hot bath makes it comfortable, and i have taken 13 hour baths, but you cant live like that

it doesnt make sense to the e.r. doc that my forearms and testicles hurt. has anyone heard anything lke that?

o, and my sex life is great, goood libido, just making sure all the facts are out there.

thats like 60 percent of my body in pain from a four to eight, for 15 hours and now a week straight. people just dont understand.

i dont drink, i do smoke pot occasionally

only other thing that may be relevant is when i was 17, i suffered a third degree open fracture ankle dislocation. gimped me for life

no other illness at all

i have lost 80 pounds since last year, i weighed 250, down to 170.

i know i'm depressed. but i always take care of my son and wife

i know this is not growing pains, i'm 30 years old

and i think whatever it is also makes my bad ankle worse than it should be

i have major insomnia too, i get four hours every other day or so, i just cant turn my brain off. i have a family to take care of, and trying to keep a mental block up for them is killing me inside, i dont know how much longer i can take it.

anyone have any ideas?
