Q: what causes Back, knee, shoulder, neck, and abdominal pain.

I've recently been experiencing back neck pains, shoulder pains, knee pains, and lower back pains. I've tried taking Aleeve, Tylenol, and Ibuprofen but nothing seems to get rid of the pain. It hurts to move my neck, hurts to walk, or even sit still with my back. I don't know if this is related to it or not, but I've been experiencing sharp pains in my abdomomin that hurt so bad I hunch over and can't help but cry. I experience nights where I will wake up every half an hour while I'm sleeping, or every 1-2 hours. This pain only lasts for a week at a time or so, some doesn't go away like my back. I haven't been to a doctor yet, I was just seeing what other people thought before I went, if I was reacting to bad. I'm only 18 years old and a male. I don't know what this could be. Can anyone help?

You really need to see a doctor particularly for that abdominal pain. Fibromyalgia is one possibility since it does co-exist with irritable bowel syndrome and is characterized by widespread body pain and poor sleep but it will take a doctor to determine what's up and if you're in  this kind of  pain then you really want one look at you. FM is serious because its so painful but there are other things that serious in the  sense that they are dangerous. I have no idea if your profile fits one of those situations but if you're having alot of pain be sure to see a doctor. 


Good luck!

Waiting to get money before I see a doctor, just wondering if my knee locking up while sitting still for too long is another symptom of this.
