I am almost 21, 5'5", 130 pounds I was always active and had a very active job. Lifting and carrying on average 50 pounds and walking all day up to 14 hours. I had a little back pain when I was 16ish and that was it, nowadays my back is either in pain or in a real discomforting feeling, mostly in shoulder blade area and lower back. And cracks and pops if I twist or bend over, its a quick temporary relief when it cracks and sometimes it hurts worse. While doing repetitive work my back will feel like its on fire and feels like it affects my breathing, I will get shortness of breath and tightness in my chest. I am fatigued usually most of the day, but have troubles sleeping. Almost all my bones crack when I move after standing or sitting, like it would when you first wake up. My wrist to my elbows usually hurt when.I wake up, and hand starts tingling in pain if my wrist pops (from picking sumthing up or removing a bottle cap). I get sharp needle like pains randomly for a.second sporatically throughout the day. Feet and hands (fall asleep) sometimes even while using them. I get headaches often, and I have bad/blurry vision. I get neck strains on the back of my neck that is an immediate discomfort/pain in the back of my head. Jaw pain/popping whether eating or not.
Those are most of the symptoms that I have and deal with usually on a daily basis, I had pneumonia when I was 4 or 5 and it was bad and almost died from it I had real high temperature. Since then I have not really seen a doctor I was always healthy and felt fine. I read about M.S. and I thought I mite of had that because my symptoms so I went and got an mri done and they took my blood. All they said was everything looks normal. I don't have medical insurance so I can't be making hospital visits frequently. I was just looking for some other thoughts on the situation, any advice or insite is appreciated =]
