I am a 28 yr old male. I have had primarily pain in the bends of my legs and arms since childhood, escpecially exposed to cold weather or water (bath). I was always told by doctors as a child that they were "growing pains". Being 28 im starting to think its something else. Over the past 5-6 yrs the pain is getting worse and happening more and more often. I also experience pain through the rest of body but mostly in joints of legs and arms and in cold weather. When I am exp. pain in the bends of my arms it tends to make its way to my hands. It sometimes kills me to use an ink pen. Would appreciate any help I could get. Thank you.
