I'm writing this now because my left wrist is bothering me. It feels achy and weak and there is a dull constant pain in my wrist and lower forearm. My palm/fingers and the top of my hand has a very faint tingling sensation. It feels as though something is cutting my circulation off. The other night I couldn't fall asleep because of the aching in my other arm, (from my hand to just above my elbow) and also it felt like my whole arm was vibrating.
I used to think it was bad circulation or because I was typing/on my computer for too long, but this has just started in the middle of me watching a video and I've moved my arm around, gotten up for a drink etc.
This also happens in my other arm, and it changes. My wrists and knees feel weak and almost numb (though they're not) and they tingle. The tingling works its way up (from my hand/wrist to my elbow and my ankles up to my knees and mid thigh). I also get tingling in my shoulder blades and neck. I've told my family and they claim its bad circulation because my feet are almost always purple/ice cold/numb but the tingling and pain is somewhat random..
I went out for the day yesterday and felt like I was going to pass out from exertion after only walking for maybe 10 minutes (at a very slow pace -we were at a zoo and constantly stopping etc). I felt out of breath and generally very weak.
I had to lean on everything to keep my balance and though I didn't feel like I was going to actually fall over, my knees felt weak and they ached as if I had been walking for an hour straight already. My mid thighs and knees, especially my right, had a strange sensation in them (like a faint tingling).
It wouldn't be so bad, but the pain is getting somewhat ridiculous. Putting something cold on my wrists help but only whilst its on there, it goes back to hurting the same when I take the cold pack off. Same goes for my ankles. My shoulder blades/neck don't hurt like my arms/legs do. I simply get the tingling sensation in my shoulder blades or the base of my neck and my neck aches/feels like my head is too heavy.
I'm female and 20, I'm not unfit but I don't go to the gym everyday. I'm pretty average, I eat normally etc. I am going to the doctors on Monday as they called me in regarding some blood test results (because I mentioned the pain etc so they are checking for inflammatory issues/arthritis etc), but I wanted to see what other people thought too.
-- As I finish typing this, the aching is now in my elbow as well as my wrist and my fingertips are tingling faintly.
