I've been having this pain ever since I was 8 (I remeber me complaining to mum in my grandfathers house, which he died in 1995 when I was 8, but that's the farthest I can remember for the history of the pain) anyway at first it was only joints, mainly in the elbows and knees, but I started having back and shoulder pain at the age of 12-13, neck pain too. I also noticed that its related to the weather change.

happens to either the left or right side, sometimes the pain is unbearable that I can't sleep.

so the pain is in my elbow and the arm itself, the elbow is the like the center that distributes the pain to the whole arm. same thin goes the knee.

kinda like sensitive teeth being exposed to cold water, like someone drilling the bones, or bacteria eating my bones lol :D
I don't know how to describe it

second, I started to numb in my right arm, hand, leg and foot
They used to last for 2 or 3 days, they come and go.

they also happen to my left side as well but it stopped. But 2 months ago I got the numbness in my right side and its still there, my hand is weak, I don't like to open it, its always closed.
No pain, but the feeling is annoying

I'm 21, female.

thanks :)
