:confused: I started having a lil pain in my knee when i straightened it out or when i would sit with my legs folded underneath me...then it progressed from there. My shoulders hurt when i move them forward and back and now my hips ache...The pain is really bad when i rest...It is starting to keep me up at night. It hurts even to pull the covers up over me...When i wake up in the morning my joints hurt so bad i can hardly walk ...After i am up for a few hours and if i am constantly moving the pain in my hips goes away and most of the pain in my knees also. The pain in my shoulders is constantly there...
I thought this may be associated with my back. I have complained about my back hurting since i was little but doctors have taken x-rays and said there was nothing wrong...They are constantly giving my muscle relaxers and anti inflamitory drugs but it never helps the back pain.
I went to the doctors the other day about all of the joint pain and they are running some blood tests to check for a thyroid problem or arthritis. Personally i doubt i have any of those conditions!
Again i am only 23 years old and i should not be living in pain like this...If anyone out there has any idea of what this could be or if anyone themselves has had these symptoms please respond!
I cant take much more of this...It is starting to affect my daily life!!!:(
p.s. One more thing i forgot to mention...I am soooooo tired all of the time! For a while i was taking 2 naps a day...Now i only let myself take one nap and even on some days i make myself stay up...Not sure if it has anything to do with the joint pain but i though i would mention it.
I am also have iron defiencie anemia.
(sorry about the spelling)
Thank you for taking the time to listen!!!
