why am I in so much pain? Joint pain and popping?

why am I in so much pain? Joint pain and popping? Topic: why am I in so much pain? Joint pain and popping?
November 17, 2019 / By Cletus
Question: I've been having problems for the last few years, and my doctors haven't been very helpful at all. I have quite a few symptoms, and I thought they might be related. They are: Joint pain in every joint in my body with the most severe and sometimes crippling pains being in my knees, back, and shoulders. I have patches of dry itchy skin constantly on my elbows and toes. My hands and feet get cold very easily and are hard to warm up. my arms go numb if I leave them above my head for too long. Every bone in my body pops, even my jaw. I have had occasional palpitations in my heart. mild hearing loss, mild hair loss, and I have trouble sleeping sometimes. I am not taking any medication, and I have been tested for thyroid problems, rhumetoid arthritis, and hypertension. my bloodwork always looks okay, and other than a regiment of accutene in 2004, I have not taken any medicine at all other than antibiotics in my entire life. I am a 24 year old male smoker but very athletic

The dry skin sounds like Psoriasis. The joint pain can be from a number of other autoimmune diseases. I would request a full Lupus panel done through your doctor. And go from there. I feel your pain.. I have several autoimmune diseases.including Psoriasis and Antiphospholipid syndrome/ Hughes Syndrome http://www.hughes-syndrome.org/ Good luck No cures right now but you can lead an active life with disease

The pain associated with lupus is usually a result of inflammation. The inflammation is the result of an immune system that has gone mad. If the inflammation is not treated the pain will return as soon as the drugs wear off. Lupus patients on pain management (which I think is a good idea in this case) often change meds periodically because patients can build up a tolerance to the pain medications, rendering them less effective. The pain causes anxiety (fear, depression, etc) which in turn aggravate the lupus and create more inflammation and pain. When you feel like your life and your body are out of control, of course you will be anxious. And telling someone to "just think positive" only causes more aggravation when you are in pain and afraid. You wife might considering seeing a pain management specialist for the pain and a good mental health counselor to deal with the emotional issues that come along with a chronic and incurable illness like lupus. Psychologists who work with oncology (cancer) patients are likely to understand the issues.

lupus is painful. I have it, so I know. I hate to agree with the above answers but if you are addicted to the pain meds, your body will manufacture pain in order to get more.With the addict gene in my family, so far I have been able to choose rest, Aleve, etc to manage my pain. Prayer helps too. I'll pray for you and your wife.

JD...you really should be evaluated for pituitary problems. Have an endocrinologist check all your hormones--recheck thyroid, cortisol, growth hormone, repro hormones, etc. ALL of your symptoms sound like hypopituitary. The aching, joint pain=low growth hormone, dry skin, hair loss, cold extremities, palpitations=thyroid, sleep problems= cortisol. Many Drs don't know how to interpret these type of labs, IE low normal thyroid is not normal, or normal TSH but low T3 and T4 =hypothyroid.

Do you have "dry" eyes or mouth also? If so...you may want to look into Sjogren's syndrome. Sorry you are going thru this.

Rylee Originally Answered: Chest pain, arm pain, back pain, and feeling of unbalance, what could this be?
Huummmm possibly an autoimmune disease e.g. lupus, multiple sclerosis (possible initial phases of it), etc or any other CNS illness but yeah i know when no one has the answers and we're on so much pain and docs just think nah it's just anxiety but yeah i know how that feels. hope this gave a little of info though. Any blurred/double vision? Dizziness? Umm loss of balance? problems walking? Tingling and or numbness or pins and needles? Any of these along with what u describing can be a CNS illness or even a stroke I'm not really sure sure but if u try to look up these things and see the similar symptoms (i know it sounds ridiculous but do it and then u can have a broader idea of what it might be). More info would be helpful but there u go that's what I could think so far. Oh yeah or simply could be something on ur back a sliped disk/sciatica, or pulled muscle could do the trick to 'cause if not all most of the symptoms. Also Pleurisy/pericarditis or even costochondritis for chest pain if not related to the back. Hope this helped. And sorry this was just a burst of what it could be but that's what it came to my mind. If u need answers in more detail or unsure about anything just ask. All the best and do and get it evaluated again. :)
