Just been doing some research and came across this website. I have been having ongoing bilateral elbow pain for a few months now. Originally I thought it was how I was sleeping, so I lie on my back and tried sleeping with elbows bent and elbows straight and all different angles but it doesn't seem to matter how I have my arms. I have also had ongoing shoulder pain (both sides) for a while. In the mornings the pain is at it's worst. Feels like an ache on the inside of my elbows and hurts particularly if I attempt to straighten my arms. The last couple days I have felt generally unwell and it seems that all the joints in my body are aching - just like how I would feel with having the flu, however I have no blocked/runny nose/ sore sinuses/respiratory symptoms. I have also joined up the gym over the last month and from lifting weights my shoulders hurt and seem to jolt when I try to move them upwards, there is no smooth movement. I also find that my Right arm is worse than my left. I also have tingling and numbness down into my right hand. I feel super tired and just generally off, to the point where I haven't wanted to go to the gym yesterday or today. I am due to go to my dr but thought I would try get some info from those of you with elbow and shoulder arthritis. would you describe the pain as an ache ?or how would you describe it? do you have any numbness/ tingling?
