I know I won't find a diagnosis, but maybe some insight? I'm in my early 20's, female, and for the past 12 months (but probably longer) on any given week I experience pain or aches in my joints. My main locations are knees, hips, elbows, and tender spots on the back of head/upper neck region. But I also get aches on the tops of my feet, legs or various parts of my body, Lowe back, upper back. I think something everyone can relate to is that "growing pain" feeling we all had as a child, well that's what it feels like usually. There really isn't a day where I don't notice an ache. These aches very rarely become intolerable or super painful, I can actually live my life through them...but something is telling me it just isn't right? On top of all that, I have other symptoms as well: frequent headaches, anxiety and some days I just feel very irratable, almost like I can't seem to get comfortable in any position I'm in, and I get very short-sharp and irratated when I'm socialising. I don't have any noticeable fatigue (I work 9-10 hours a day, and I'm always fine after work in terms of energy levels, just your standard tiredness that should be expected). I have seen two doctors so far but no answers and it is still an ongoing issue, but I thought I'd also try a forum for advice whilst the doctors also try and help me. it's a long post, but any insight, advice or stories are welcomed to be shared!
