I've had frequent issues over the years with random aches and pains, nothing that i couldnt justify. However when i became pregnant with my second child, i had excruciating hip and back pain, that no one could figure a cause for other then pregnancy aches and pains (this pain started about a week after i tested positive at about 9 weeks pregnant). Fast forward to June 2010 when my daughter was born, she was delivered via C/S, i was on pain meds for a short time after i had her, within a week of coming off the pain meds, my joints started killing me, i brought it to my OB's attention at a 2 week check for my daughter, she told me it was just post partum aches. well a few weeks after that, my joints started to grind (i'm not talking a few, i'm talking all them) and i was also having issues with muscle weakness (or non-responsiveness from my muscles. i was taken to the ER, and was tested for Lupus, and told to follow up with my PCP, which i did, i was tested for RA, and MS through them. Here i am 5 months later, and the pain is worse then ever, i'm so frustrated, I dont know where to turn, who will actually look at me and try to figure this out. AIP didnt come up until recently, it was my last visit with my PCP before we moved, she told me, when we got settled and i got a new PCP to ask them about it. Everywhere i look it says its rare, i dont want to be looked at like i'm nuts. Tonight was the final straw for me, I fell, and fell hard, I need some help or at least some reassurance!
