Really Achy Again At 11 Months

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hey Everyone,

Suddenly now on month 11 I am feeling a lot of body aches this week-joint and muscles. Always seems to be in the same place-right arm/shoulder, elbows, toes. Not sure if it's because I had one too many drinks a couple weekends ago (first time consuming any alcohol all year), but I feel like I am slipping backwards a little bit. Does anyone else still get joint/muscle pain this far along.? My muscle pain really feels like tension-almost like I have been flexing my arm all day and need it to relax. It's quite bothersome.

      Good to know I am not alone, but sad that this virus is such a pain in the ass for so many people. Sometimes I feel like I will never feel 100% again. 😦 I've even read other stories from people who said they never felt back to 100% after active EBV.

      Yes-the heat seems to make matters worse. Yesterday my shoulder/arm were aching so badly. Today it's my right knee. I took some Advil this morning. I am so over this. I feel like EBV ruined my body. I don't even know if the virus is still active. Not sure it even matters really since they can't do anything about it anyway.

      I take Advil sometimes for the aches and pains and it does seem to help. Luckily, I haven't had to lately except for these past few days. I swear I am having a relapse since drinking a couple weekends ago.
