I woke up one morning about 4 months ago with severe back pain, I have had back pain in the past, but not like this. For the past 4 months I started getting back,leg,and neck pain. I have also gained 21 lbs, and I'm not eating well. Sometimes I wake up with swollen hands and most of the mornings I get up all stiff, I can't hardly get out of bed. I have had blood work done which shows Addisons Disease, and my doctor said this still does not explain my symptoms. I am alomst 35, but I feel more like75. I used to play with my girls, exercise, go shopping, and now I barely go to work and come home. I was checked for Rheumatoid,Lupus, and many disease, and nothing came up.

Any ideas?
