Hi...I'm sorry, I posted this earlier but didnt see this category and think I may do better here:
It really does seem like awful pain is all there is lately. I hope this is in the right place, because I haven't actually been able to visit a doctor for this yet. I lost my medical insurance a couple months ago.
For around 4 months, I have had terrible, non-stop pain in all my joins. It seems the worst in my hips, shoulders, and ankles...but really, I can say every single one of them ache so bad I can barely even concentrate on anything else. I hate the "describe the pain" question because it all seems so vague and I just want to say, "It hurts real bad," but if I could describe it, I'd say it feels like insense, deep ache with a bad, weird, tingly/burny feel along with it. I try and be a good mom, ignore it, deal with it, but the pain feels so "loud" it feels like trying to ignore someone screaming in my face.
I'm 29, have 2 little ones...one is 4 and one is 2 months. Aside from a history of A.D.D. and anxiety, I'm otherwise healthy. (No meds for these conditions.) Truthfully, I take one of a close relative's painpills (yes, I know, its wrong to do) every 4 or 5 days to get a couple hour break from it, but that's all it really provides. Nothing works and I have tried everything: naproxen, ibuprofen, vitamins, plain tylenol, asprin...everything under the sun...I even had some prescription stuff sort of like a strong naproxen (relafen? I think is what its called) and even that does totally nothing.
