Hello ..

Im so unwell i have severe pains in my both arms.. pains in both shoulders... especially when i try to reach for things or tie my hair up.. it feels like my bones snap out of place... the pain shoots down my arms.. it feels like a knife in the heart... i fall to the floor sometimes in tears as i try to lift my arm up as i loose control of movement. It gets worse at night as i cant sleep from the pain.. i lay on my back.. as i cant lay on my sides.. it puts pressure to my arms.. at night i wake if lucky enough to drop off to sleep... in pain as i accidently turn over on my side while i sleep.. Im waiting for blood tests and xrays results.. please can someone tell me what i can do or what this pain is.. My son died last year he was 20years old.. since i lost him this pain has come on slowly and is getting worse now where i cant doing any chores at home.. i cry all the time pain on top of pain.. please please help me..

  • Hi, aaliyah: I am so sorry to hear about your son. That must have been very stressful....and it is very possible you are still stuffering from that stress and your body is now reacting to it....this is a possibility. Be calm and wait for the tests results then let us know. It is hard (at least for me) to guess without more information. By the way, what is your age? If you are in your forties or fifties you may also be having some of the vague and hard to diagnose symptoms of menopause and perimenopause....this is a very stressful time for women and if you carefully talk to women of this age they will confess to the symptoms...unfortunatly women themselves and doctors are not very aware of all that can happen to a body at this stage of the game...it does cause depression, and many, many physical symptoms. I hope this helps....when you get some results let us know.....stay calm...If I can I will help....Joan
