I am a 18 year old girl and I've had a lot of issues with health, culminating in the last several years. But there are two things that I have always had that I just want to know why. With all the symptoms and health issues going on, I just want everything to stop and be normal. I'll probably never completely get rid of all the symptoms, but it would help that maybe I could know what some of the symptoms go to.
All my life, I have had random pain in my body. One day it'll be in my arm, the next, my knee, and so on. It can be a dull ache to a sharp pain. One time it was so bad that I thought I broke my arm by doing nothing. I couldn't move it at all without feeling such severe pain. I ended up making a makeshift cast out of my shirt and after four or so hours the pain finally went down to a dull ache. It's annoying because it can happen at any time with any level of pain. I think it might be my bones, because the pain always comes from those areas: Knees, shoulders, hips, back, elbow, etc. I'm not sure what it is at all.
Secondly, going along with the previous paragraph, my ribs are extremely sensitive. I've never injured them at all, but for some reason, whenever I scratch my ribs or put to much pressure on them it is SEVERE agony. My ribs just feel like they are on fire and sometimes I have to just sit down and hold myself. I'm incompacitated. I can't itch there (but sometimes I forget), and I have to make sure that I put no pressure on my ribs.
So, there you have it. The two symptoms I have had all my life. Not the newer ones. I tried looking up the symptoms online, but nothing sounded like it. It was usually about 'cracked ribs'.
So, if there's anyone out there who has the same symptoms, please say so. I feel alone right now and like a weirdo. There's just too many things wrong.
Thanks for listening.
