I've been to the doctor. He put me on meds for Rheumatoid Arthritis. I don't have all the symptoms of RA. I'm on the 2nd medication and it isn't working.
My first doctor told me to take 3 aleve 3 times a day, no relief...

I can't type for long because my wrist and arms ache.
I can't write without my hands aching.
I can't grasp something for more than 20 seconds w/o my hand cramping/aching
My back aches around my ribs and lower back.
I may have Ulnar Tunnel syndrome because my hands become numb if my arms are bent too long (like sleeping or leaning on elbow)
I have pain in my ankels, my calves, and knees when getting up after a long rest.
I get an occasional radiating pain in my left arm, either from the elbow to shoulder or elbow to wrist.
I'm exhausted even after sleeping.
Can't walk long distances without bad pain in shins.
Can't do anything without feeling fatigued within a little amount of time.
I have TMJ
I may have EBS but haven't seen a doctor for it.

Is this CFS? ME? RA? Cancer?
