Same thing happened to me about 4 years ago. After numerous tests and doctors, I kept getting, well it could be...let’s do some more tests, still no answers. After doing my research and eliminating everything I had been tested for, I came up with a gluten allergy. I eliminated gluten and started using cbd oil, and hooray my symptoms have disappeared. Good luck

6 years ago I got a shingles shot! It was a bad strain. The virus attacked my joints and muscles. The Dr’s tried diagnosing me the these issues . I’m part of a Merek major law suit! See a neurologist, do not go onto prednisone.

I feel so sorry for people that suffer with pain. I just want to make a general comment. I thank “talk of the villages” and it’s readers for offering advice to a person who is suffering. It’s a great website, I read it daily because of its readers. Helping people is wonderful and I thank all of you

As a longtime Lyme warrior, I agree. Lyme is very difficult to diagnose and most of it lies with non informed doctors. Lyme literate docs are very difficult to find in Florida. If you want to Pursue this possibility and have difficulty finding a LLMD, I can help. PM me and I will enlist a bunch of my old contacts.

My story: It started with symmetrical large joints pain. Diagnosis PMR. Was put on prednisone and I got immediate relief. All was good for 5 months as I was reducing the prednisone dose. Then I started having inflammation in hands and severe pain in small joints in hands and wrists and also some in my feet. Saw my rheumatologist and was told PMR can evolve to rheumatoid arthritis. Prednisone was increased to back where I started for PMR. It has reduced inflammation but still having pain, lack of movement and burning sensation in small joints in hands. I am to go for a blood test but that may not always point to RA. Have to have baseline macular/retina visual test then I start a new med (hydroxy chloroquine) for RA as I reduce the prednisone dosage. I am hoping that will work as current condition is NO FUN! Good luck!

As mentioned, do you take a Statin? If you do you need to take CQO10 everyday. It really helps. The other thing it could be is gout. I know some people say it only happens mainly in the feet but I had what you are talking about and they put me on Mitigate.
Helped

Wow, all I can say is wow!

To the OP, please go see a good rheumatologist. While everyone means well, threads like this is the reason there is no AAAP (American Association of Amateur Physicians) The responses here vary from fairly reasonable to the bizarre.

Lyme is a reasonable suggestion worth checking out, but only primary Lyme disease would give the diffuse aches you describe within a week or two of being exposed to Borelia burgdorferi (the Lyme spirochete) , in association with a flu-like illness and sometimes erythema chronicum migrans (the bullseye rash). Secondary Lyme (years later) usually affects only a single joint.
To the person who thinks difficulty with diagnosing Lyme disease rests with "misinformed physicians", who is more informed about Lyme than physicians, him with a google account????

Certainly a statin induced myopathy is possible if taking one.

The "iron poster" is referring to hemochromatosis, a genetic disorder of iron metabolism that can cause arthritis among other things. Generally the OP would be aware of a family history of that disease.

A pinched nerve? Please educate me on the neuroanatomy that has a single nerve that innervates both shoulders, hands, legs, knees and feet. I suppose a severe cervical spinal stenosis with impeding cord compression could give that kind of pain, but would be associated with motor and incontinence problems as well, and the OP would be in no condition to be posting on TOTV.

I agree with avoiding steroids unless a diagnosis is made, and you can leave the CoQ10 in the bottle where it belongs

Once again good luck and hope you feel better

Yes, pain AND numbness AND burning AND tingling—simultaneously. For me the cause of the symptoms is ‘severe neuropathy’

Me: ‘What causes severe neuropathy?

MD: ‘It’s a symptom of diabetes.’

Me: ‘But I’ve been checked time and again—and I’m not diabetic.’

MD: ‘Then we have no idea what’s causing it...‘

There is so much they don’t know....

You don't really expect us to believe this was an actual conversation, do you? With a medical doctor?, not some wannabe quack who uses the title "Dr.", such as a chiropractor or a podiatrist?

A MD probably wouldn't use the term "severe neuropathy", and would call it a COMPLICATION of diabetes, not a symptom. He would not state he had no idea what was causing it, when there are at least a dozen causes I can think of off the top of my head and most of them can be easily tested for.

Sorry, but this mythologic conversation doesn't pass the smell test.

If something doesn't hurt when I wake I would worry. I was given Meloxicam for my hip a few weeks back. Helped all the pains also.
