Hi, I am 42 years old and a few months ago I fell twice in the same month. Since then my back hurts and all my joints hurt except my knees.
Geez, I know how you feel. I turn 40 on Monday. Two months ago I fell and my wrist still hurts. I nearly broke my finger last week, so I can barely type. And my darn back has been super cranky these past two weeks.
I just keep going and try to take care of myself with ice, rest, and some OTC meds. It just takes longer to heal these days.
My best advice is to concentrate on fall prevention so that this does not happen again. Some hospitals and PT clinics offer balance workshops for fall prevention. Just be careful out there..
