Hello...New to this web site.

I have all over joint/muscle pain/general fatique all the time. Started when I quit smoking with Chatix in March 2007. Unlike the posts I've read here the pain did not stop after I quit Chantix.

In addition to the pain, I have swelling in both ankles/feet with the right foot swelling the most. Also inability to lose weight and have ovarian cysts.

The last 2 doctors I went too couldn't find anything wrong with me. ??? I am going to try yet another Dr in July.

Any opions will be appreciated.

Mayfe :)

  • If you have joint pain and swelling in the feet, you might have Gout, especially if you are overweight. If you do have gout, the swelling is caused by retaining water, which the body does in order to dilute acid that your kidneys can't handle. Joint pain is caused by acid, plus your immune response, attacking connective tissues.
