I am a 53 year old female and I am so tired of being in pain. I guess it started when I was a teenager, I would get leg pain quite often. As I got older the leg pain got more often and as of three years ago the pain in my legs is almost constant. It feels like the growing pains that you would get as a child. I also have lots of problems sleeping I wake up 3-6 times a night in an 8 hour period. One year ago I had a blood clot in my right leg and was told that does not have anything to do with the normal pain that I have in both legs. I now find myself hot all of the time and almost constant sweating. My potassium has been low because of the sweating. I have been eating at least 2 bananas a day to get my potassium level up. I am tired most of the time and just miserable that I can't do everything I want to do in life anymore. Another weird symtom is that I am very sensitive to the touch. It hurts when someone touches me. I want to get my life back, please, please help me!!! I am on pain meds around the clock but find I am still in real pain. There are days I just want to give up because I don't want to live like this anymore.

  • get your adrenals tested, along with a bunch of hormonal tests, calcuium and vit. D...seems like you have been letting this go a long time but I imagine they ran tests when you had the blood clot..
