I am always stiff in the morning my joints lol
I don't really feel too well these days and find it hard to get to sleep as well at night and when I do, I'm a light sleeper .
Other half says I snore for Scotland and I have woken myself up at times with it...
When I take a jacket off, I have to let it slide from my left side before I take the other side off otherwise the pain is unbearable.
Has me worried though in case it's something more serious that might lead to other problems as I get older.
Flu like symptoms come and go, I did get the flu a few weeks ago strangely enough.
Appetite is ok.
No weight loss.
No fatigue as such but don't do as much as I should do and used to do...edit on 16-11-2013 by scotsdavy1 because: (no reason given)
Okay I'm no doctor by any means but I have been around them enough in my life that I can offer you some advice. Okay arthitis sucks, I have it in my lower back,ankles,an right shoulder. But I also have something that you may want to have your doctor check you for. I have RSD or CRPS if you prefer. I have lived in agony for the last 8 years. An no amount of blocks,therapy, "new" methods of treatment have ever helped with the pain so lets hope you don't have that. But still get checked on it because once you mentioned nerves an pain with slight touch my RSD bell sounded.
Before I start, I have an appt with my doctor but earliest I can get to see my regular one is three weeks away.
I suffer from athritis in my hands and elbow plus my lower back has been affecting me for many years in that I had to give up long distance truck driving due to the long hours sitting which I,cannot do now.
What it is, for past six or more weeks, my right arm from the shoulder to the elbow is giving me so much pain I cannot even lie on my right side in my bed at night. If I take a jacket off for example it is extremely painful but goes away after a short time.
Last time I saw the doc he said it was a trapped nerve but I have my doubts.
When my back really went last year, it lasted for about 8-10 weeks and the pain was so,bad I nearly called an ambulance but eventually it eased off.
I can carry bags of messages for example but cannot lift them up above the waist without dropping them.
It's a bit like toothache in that the pain is constantly there all the time.
Any ideas would be really welcome as it's doing my head in....

So the fact that the vitamin cure, cured my arthritis, is irrelevant?
To be sure, there is a lot of quack cures out there, but that does not mean that all vitamin related cures do not work.
Some vitamin cures work, some do not.
