If you're having that kind of chronic pain, you must talk to you doctor right away and start to figure out what the trouble is and what you can do about it.

 

First, be sure you can describe your pain.

Osteoarthritis tends to be like this:

  • The most common symptom of osteoarthritis in any joint is pain that worsens during activity and gets better during rest. As the disease advances, the pain may occur even when the joint is at rest.
  • Pain is generally described as aching, stiffness, and loss of mobility.
  • The pain may behave like a roller coaster, with bad spells followed by periods of relative relief.
  • Pain seems to increase in humid weather.
  • Some people experience muscle spasm and contractions in the tendons.
  • Osteoarthritis in the knee may cause a crackling-like noise (called crepitus) when moved.

If your pain doesn't sound like this, then you may want to ask about rheumatoid arthritis. In RA, joints are swollen, may be warm to the touch and tend to be stiff in the morning. People with RA may also feel tired or have fever and unexplained weight loss.

I know this post is from a while ago but I really hope you get this.....do you use Splenda????  All the symptoms you described are effects of Splenda and other artificial sweeteners!!

Are you serious?  I have horrible aching muscles and joint pain.  I get cordisone shots in the shoulder and elbow and everything stops aching.  If this is all caused by splenda, why don't they advertise that?

I used to have such chronic pain all over. I thought it was part growing old in my early 50s, then I started wearing Energy Armor. I actually just got it for my balance because I did the test, however, 2 days later I was waking up without pain....I also had the best nights of sleep. I am always looking for natural remedies and seldom take medication, although before getting my band I would have to take advil especially before doing any exercises and after. I haven't had to take advil for 9 months. Now when I got their old bands it only had 500 negative ions and I paid $25.00 for it and although that helped with my balance it didn't take away my pain, it wasn't until I got the ones that had up to 3000 negative ions that I found relief. This one is $5.00 more and sooooooo worth it. Needless to say I've bought more since then. I was given a code to order it online to get 20% off orders.....You can use it if you want...every little bit helps. It's promo code: IA001, that is I (as in India) A (as in apple) zero zero one. I absolutely love this stuff...this company has certainly hit a goldmine. Now their website won't tell you that it does this stuff, but this is what I do for my chronic pain. And it's all natural. I did a lot of research before I purchased mine and now everyone in my family and parents siblings are all wearing one. I could go on how it has helped my family in different ways but you kinda have to try it to believe it. Now from my research I found that a small percentage are not affected by negative (good ions) or positive ions (bad ions). Well, you decide. When you get to the point when you want to try something different, give that I try. $30 was worth it for me but be careful...you will feel good and then want to buy one for everyone for christmas, birthdays etc....i won't even tell you how much money they made off of me.....but I am still loving it and feel good getting up in the morning without pain instead of having to roll out of bed from chronic pain in my back.
