Can arthritis hurt That bad, give you a headache, and radiate down arm and leg? Been taking muscle relaxants, hydrocodone, and aleve as prescribed, helps a lot sometimes but have considerable pain still at times.

  • How old are you? Maybe is pre-menopausal symptoms or a thyroid problem. Have you seen a doctor who practices traditonal and complementary medicine? A regular blood work-up won't necessariyl detect the hormonal fluctuations and imbalances that may be wreaking havoc on your endocrine system.

  • I am 43. I have a primary care physician. Im not sure what you mean by traditional or complimentary doctor. I had blood work done about six years ago, I was having an allergic reaction to something, I believe they checked the thyroid glands. Everything came back normal. I took a strong antibiotic (1 1/2 750 mg.) and the intestinal problem got a lot better, but not completely normal. I don't eat unless I'm close to a bath room within 10 min. notice. I don't know what to ask my regular doctor to check for. Thanks for replying. Please reply again.
