I cannot raise my arms or lift my legs to get in & out of the car, tub or bed. This pain came on suddenly, and is worse at night when trying to sleep. It is so bad, I cannot turn over on my side, (cannot lift myself to turn)-- no strength in arms, legs. Pain seems to be coming from the shoulder, hip and groin areas. (I've had 2 previous back operations), yrs ago but nothing like this! Both areas have equal pain. Blood test showed inflammation, percoset & arthrotec don't help. What could this be and what to do for help? Fatigue and mild headaches accompany above. Can't function.......am desperate, please HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
