About the last four months I have been experincing pain, numbness, and tingliness in my joints and muscles. My most sentive areas are my feet, toes, ankles, skins,thighs,hips,knees,fingers,and hands. I feel like the bones in the top of feet are tightening. I am always in pain I never feel relife. I am 31 years old, I am physically active and healthy. The past couple of weeks I can barely get through my workouts. I work fulltime but today I missed work because I was in so much pain. My feet hurt so bad I didn't want to put on my shoes. My doctor just put me on Davocet but it does not take away the pain just make me very cranky.

I also am very sentive to cold temperature. If my hand get wet with cold water and it the air is cold I am in much pain.

I am been to the DR. At this point I am just waiting to see a Specialist. I cannot be seen until May! I cannot imagine 6 more weeks of this. I did take some blood tests. It shows I had Hypothrodism. So the DR tried me on a Hormone but it didn't help at all it just made me gain 13 pounds in 3 weeks! So she took me off the meds. She also gave me a vitamen B-12 shots because my levels were low. I haven't seen any results from that yet. My White blood cells were low and I tested postive for an ANA blood test. That is why she referred me to a Specialist. I was tested for Rhemotoid Arthritis that was negative so was the Diabetis test.

Six years ago I tested postive for Strojens Syndrome. At that time I was referred to a Specialist. I guess I was only a point over the postive level so the Doctor acted like I was waisting his time. I had no symptoms of the disease. It effects your moisture glands. I still do not have those symptoms just the muscle pain. But after doing research I saw that Strogens Syndrom is one of the Diseases in the ANA Blood test.

This is destroying my life. I hurt at the touch. I can't even though my feet together. I sleep stretched out on my bed and my husband can't sleep in my bed anymore because I am in so much pain. I am a mother of four and it hurts for me to change my baby's diaper. Help I don't know what to do!

  • http://www.sjogrens.org/ Yes, you could have something else going on, gout, diabetes or thyroid, which warrants more blood work.
