Thankyou so much for the reply.
I have no recent sickness or food poisoning. Not so much as a cold or belly ache!
I didn't medicate last night so I could properly catalogue my symptons - regretting that now as I can hardly stand up!
But the symptons are (from the feet up):-
Pain in the front of my shin if I curl my toes or point my foot up.
Pain all around the ankle if I rotate my foot.
Knees click if I raise my foot when sitting and pain in the front/outside of my thigh by the knee joint - it is also tender to touch here.
Pain in the knee area when I stand along with with pain in my hip where it is also tender to touch.
Pain in the centre lower back when I stand up or stand still.
Pain in both elbow joints if I fully straighten or bend the joint - NO pain on the muscle if I flex my bicpep.
Pain in the elbow joint if I rotate my wrists.
Pain in the elbow joint and wrist if I make a fist
Pain across my shoulders if I turn my head or fully raise an arm.
No pain above neck level, no headache, no fever, no sickness.
The pain is bad enough that I cannot stand straight up from sitting with either really taking my time and going slow, or being helped. I could not walk down the stairs this morning without slowly lowering myself with the bannisters. I cannot hold a mug in my left hand for a prolonged period before having to put it down due to pain in that elbow (my left is far worse than my right - I am left handed?!)
My hips ache when I sit and my shins ache constantly.
I think that is all! Gonna take some pills now
