I am a 23 year old female who has been having bone pain since 18. Its every day, from about an hour after I wake up til around 4 or 5 in the evening. It seems to effect all my joints, from my jaw, to finger, back, wrists, elbows, everything. Its a deep, heavy, tiring ache. I have been to doctor after doctor, and I have had tests after tests, and they can't seem to find anything wrong with me. I have been on over the counter meds, to Rx meds and nothing seems to help. I am tired of having this pain day after day. Does anyone else have these symptoms or know what it could be?

Thank you!

  • Many different things can have bone pain as a symptom. Have you had your vitamin D level tested??? If not, make sure your D levels are tested as it may be a common issue such as vitamin D deficiency. (Many doctors seem to not be aware that Vit D deficiency can cause an issue like bone pain).

  • i've been having similar issues. I'm 20 and all my issues started last year. I was diagnosed with sjogren's disease. I honestly was so happy to actually KNOW what was wrong with me. Only it turns out that sjogren's disease had nothing to do with my pain. it was just a coincidence that they had found that i had this disease. So i've been to so many doctors and everything comes back fine. I've been tested for lupus, a number of other autoimmune diseases, MS, and tumors. I've also been tested for cancer and it just seems like everything comes back saying i'm healthy even though i have these pains. If you hear anything about what yours might be i'd love to hear it. i wish i could give you an answer as to what you have but i cant. at least you know you're not alone.
