Achy Hands And Joints
Posted 23 May 2008 - 05:58 AM
This last week I have notices that my hands are achey and my joints... not sure what would bring this on, I plan on talking to my Dr about it but I thought I would see if anyone here has this symptom? And maybe what causes it it for them, if they have figured it out?

I've had lots of food testing and done all kinds of eliminations and challenges so I am pretty sure this is not another food allergy. My doctor is Lyme literate and we don't think it is Lyme. Fibromyalgia is a real disease but it is not a very helpful diagnosis. It is not degenerative or particularly scary, but it hurts. There is no consensus on treatment and no particular test for it, just symptoms that are not accounted for by anything else. My rheumatologist actually said there was no point in seeing her further as there was nothing she could do for me. (argh) She recommended I get more sleep and see my regular doctor for pain meds if necessary.
Sorry that this isn't more helpful. I am getting acupuncture, taking nutritional supplements from my naturopath and doing gentle exercises when I get up in the morning. All are helping. I am sorry you are hurting!
