    What could cause my knee, hip, elbow, and wrist to ache? It's hard to even go up stairs once I've been sitting for a while.

    I'm sorry you're having a rough time. Being in pain can create some significant challenges to your daily life.

    First, though, I want to encourage you to not feel embarrassed. What's happening to you is not your fault, but is the result of something wonky with your body. This is not embarrassing, it's a sign that you need to see your doctor.

    Being in pain and stiffening up after being addressed may be a sign of a form of arthritis, but it's impossible to tell exactly what's going on. That's why it's very important that you make an appointment to see your doctor to talk to them about the symptoms and get further testing done. If you do have arthritis, your doctor will be able to help you find a specialist and treatment to help you feel better.


    Good luck! Please keep us posted on what happens?
