Can anyone help me?
I first felt pain 3 years ago when i was pregnant with my daughter.It was like a sharp shooting pain traveling from my wrists down to my fingers and i was told by my doctor that it was carpol tunnel? i put up with the pain but when my daughter was born the pain didnt go and i started to get the same sort of pain in my elbows knees and feet and sometimes pain in my hip (that may be totally seperate after my daughter lay on a nerve during labour) the pain some days is unbareable! I went back to the doctor and he took blood tests and ruled out arthritis and got xrays taken with nothing found:confused:
I was put on diclofenac? and omeprazole? and was on them for a good 6 months and it never touched the pain but did cause terrible stomach pain! I came off the diclofenac and now just feel like my bones are "turning in" so to speak.I can never get comfortable at night time and when i wake up in the morning it hurts to get out of bed.The pain is worse in my hands and i have tried to take cod liver oil and other daft things that people tell me to take but im really struggling now and feel like because the docs dunno what it is that they think its not real:( any suggestions????
Thanks xxx

Thanks xxx Get your vitamin D levels tested - a deficiency can cause fibro symptoms. Often docs don't test for this and it's a simple blood test. Please consider trying acupuncture and chinese medicine to help treat your symptoms. It can be very helpful. Best wishesDOM

  • While pregnant, your body produces hormones that make your ligaments very lax. I find it entirely possible that you lost some of the elasticity during your pregnancies that is causing you some trouble now. Doing strength training exercises on all muscles surrounding the joints should help. Also, be careful not to stretch for a while. It's funny to suggest that because I'm a big believer in stretching for health, but right now you need your muscles and ligaments to remember where they are supposed to go or how they are supposed to work properly. Working with a well-qualified Physical Therapist can help you!!

Thanks xxx After I gave birth I started feeling the same symptoms. I went to 6 different doctors and they tested me for so many things even arthritis, but nothing. I started to have more symptoms that I was ignoring them because they were for me not related like: chills, stomach aches, mild depression, bump like bruces on my knees, fatigue (flu like). Finally, I went to a reumathologist and she told me that I may have Crohn's disease or another type of Auto-Immune disease. They are still testing me. Be patient, because some diseases or conditions are not easy to dignose, but at the same time be informed about the possibilities. That's something that I had to learned on the way. Hope you feel better, and that you find an answer.

  • Dear,I saympathise with you so mch and asking God to help you (God willing) to find solution to your problem.... Most of your symptoms go with Rheumatoid arthritis.... just please tell me about the finding of the X-Ray on your joints... And please tell me more about your morning complaint, I mean accurately the state of your joints just when you wake up and what do you do when you feel this problem in movement.... what about the results of your blood analysis about the ESR, CRP.... Thanks and hoping everything will go OK God Willing

  • Did you say that your wrist-to-hand pain persisted?If so,what fingers are involved?Now,the other joint pains are a symmetrical polyarthritis or polyarthralgia depending on whether there's inflammation or not.Do you have inflammation(heat,redness,and swelling of the joints)?

  • Hi everyone,Thanks very much for all your advice.I was sat here thinking i was loopy! :DOn my x-rays of my hands and feet nothing showed up.Also my blood tests were totally clear.The pain in my my hands is very hard to describe.Its like shooting pain right to the tip of my fingers up the back of my hand and the pain in my wrist is like a toothache that wont go! on the palm of my hand i get these shooting pains aswell.When i wake in the morning im very stiff and it takes me a while to get my body to wake up.The pain is always there and never goes. some days i can take it but others i just want to curl up and cry (not helpful when you have a 2 year old). my joints never swell or bruise.I feel better already knowing people have suggestions for me other than soak in the bath:mad:Thank you everyone x *also...it doesnt hurt when anyone touches my joints or get worse if i move a certain way*

  • Have you had an EMG?That would tell for sure if it's a nerve problem.

Mine are basically concentrated in hands and feet and also feel like a toothache that won't go away. I also have had a million tests done, all negative, no swelling or inflammation, and no other symptoms, just pain. They also do not hurt when touched, nor do I experience any stiffness. I had Coxsackie virus last year and Pericarditis from it, which cleared up, then the joint pains started shortly after.Did your symptoms ever resolve or did you get a diagnosis?

  • Joint pain can be caused by injury affecting any of the ligaments, bursae, or tendons surrounding the joint. Injury can also affect the ligaments, cartilage, and bones within the joint. Pain is also a feature of joint inflammation (arthritis) and infection, and can be a feature of tumors of the joint. Joint pain is also referred to as arthralgia. Buy fioricet, cheap tramadol, or discounted ultram for your joint pain.
