I dont know if anyone can help but about 6 weeks ago, literally overnight all my joints became painful and started clicking (not a single joint of mine has ever clicked before). The noise is so loud people keep commenting on it. The worst are my wrists, fingers, shoulders, elbows, lower back, left hip and ankles. I went to the doctors cos the pain was so bad one day I couldnt swim 10 lengths in the pool. She tested for inflammatory disease, ie reactive arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis but all came back negative.
It doesnt seem to get worse with exercise, in fact it hurts the most when resting.
I have always taken joint supplements so I know I am not lacking in that department.
It feels like someone has stolen all the fluid from my joints and the bones are scraping!?!
I have had to severely curtail my exercise regime as my shoulders cant take the press ups and hip can't take the running. Unfortunately I am not happy to settle with the doctors "one of those mysteries, take ibuprofen" diagnosis.
Any help greatly appreciated, there is nothing more I can research on the internet but its just not going away!!
I've noticed my evening appetite has decreased significantly in the last 3 weeks. Normally you can't tear me away from food - I love food and enjoy eating, but recently, I've found the evening meal to be a struggle - I can manage a couple of monthfulls, then i'm full up and feel a bit nauseous - my appetite seems to vanish.
I usually train around 6pm, have a shower and change at 7.30pm, and am then ready to eat between 8 - 8.30. Have kept to this pattern for years. No real change in diet, training pattern or intensity of training.
I'd be interested to know what factors may cause this? My sleep has also been very poor in recent weeks, and I'm wondering if the 2 are related? My other half is happy though - it means more food for him!
