    Sudden joint pains all over my body?

    I had this pain as far as I can remember. Perhaps when I was 7. I'm 21 now. So for 14 years, it never went away. I guess it's some sort of joint pain, but after all time googling I can't find a disease that suits me.

    The aching pain can be in my knees, wrists, ankles, toes, fingers, wrists, elbow. Never shoulder, hip or any other joint area.

    The pain can come anytime, often at night. Probably comes once a week or once every few weeks (It's very random). The pain comes suddenly and lasts about 30mins to 1-2 hours at max. It's not visible at all (never ever), doesn't swell or turn any colors.

    Also the pain is randomly in any of the above described places.

    When my finger hurts, I just want to twist it as much as I can then it would feel better. It;s not stiff at all. I also want to put it in very hot water, but never cold.

    I'm sorry you had these pains for 14 years without answers. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I can contribute much to solve your problem, but I'll try to point you in a direction that might need to answers.

    Clearly there is something going on, but the scattershot nature of your pains make it difficult to pinpoint what it is. Have you seen a rheumatologist? You may want to ask your family doctor to be referred to one — or if you've already seen one or several, another one — and try to find one associated with a teaching hospital. Sometimes they have more resources and are better at thinking outside the box. Have you had blood tests done? What about imaging tests, such as x-ray, CT scan or MRI?


    Here are some sites you might check out to see if they help:

    Neuralgia – An Overview

    Fibromyalgia – An Overview
