I have read a few postings before I submitted this thread just to get an idea of how this system works. It seems like there are numerous postings concerning joint pain - - which is interesting (maybe the enlightened ones can comment on this)...is joint pain so multi causal that it is hard to put a medical finger on exactly what the problem is?

Also - any hypotheses as to why I have joint pain in my hips, shoulders, elbows, and lower back. I'm 24 yo and in generally good health. These pains are causing me to lose sleep which causes my mind to reel about the next day. I had previously been diagnosed with erliciosis (sp?) about a year ago after a 103.7 degree fever and severe joint pain - - much like now, without a fever. I was treatment with dyoxycycline for two weeks, and recovered quickly. No further problems until now, no fever, no current meds, healthy weight and diet. I'm always cold, and my nailbeds are blue.

Could this be stress? anxiety?
