I am a 30 y.o. male who has been living with chronic knee pain for years now( was told it is chondromalacia) that always been worse with weather change and that can be very high on the scale pain with or without exortion.
Within the past few years, it has progress to other joints, making even my toes hurt. The main joints that are painful regularly are both knees, ankles, all toes, wrists, neck, shoulders and my shoulder blades give me a hard time too.
To add to this, I had lymph nodes removed in my groin (right side) because they were enlarged.
Although all was clear with what was removed, i seem to have problems with my lymph glands off and on... in my arm pit they get very tender and sometime swollen off and on. Same goes in the groin area on both side.
My muscles aches off and on without reason... and often accompany my joint pain on the scale level and area affected. My lower back experience pain that don't seem linked to strain or work or anything at all either.
I seem to more and more search my words when I speak. Although it seem so unrelated to all of this is not a usual thing for me although english is my second language. It gets frustrating... I lose my train of thought or although I know what I am trying to say I can't find the words that goes with the thought. I mix people name at work and it is upsetting by moment how it can affect random daily basis tasks.
My fatigue level fluctuate without reason either. I don't do anything different yet one week it is easy to get up and go about my day and other week like this week, I can hardly get myself out of bed and feel extremely exhausted all day long. Like my whole body is falling asleep on me.
All Doctors ever come up with is that my knees and other joints hurt because of martial arts when in fact, it doesn't impact anything more than work or daily life. I know because I haven't went to martial arts in 4 months now( non-related reason) and everything hurts as much as ever.
If the doctors can't find anything wrong with me, than why am I in so much pain?
The only thing that seem to bring relieve is Naproxen and it depends on how severe the pain is. (if severe it often doesn't do much for me)
I can walk and do regular activities most day but the pain is constant regardless if I rest or do something.
I'm at a loss as what is going on with me really...
Thanks for any help
