Bone pain all over, seeking help
Hello all! I'm a 47yr old female postmenopausal, active with a full time career as an ER nurse. For the past several months I've been having aching pains to just about all parts of my body and I wonder if anyone has any ideas or suggestions. The pain is not constant and doesn't stay only in one area. For instance, I get pain in my rt. hip if I lay on it while sleeping, so I've been waking up to change sides and then I can't stay on the lt. side too long either. I also get pains to the thighs, ankles and feet. If I sit say during supper, when I go to rise off the chair my knees and ankles hurt. If that isn't bad enough, my shoulders and elbows ache off and on. Once I get moving I'm ok but I'm still young and I don't think I should be having these pains. I know if I go to a doctor they'll not know what is wrong since it involves the whole body and comes and goes. By the way, I am about 40lbs overweight and I thought about that with regards to the lower extremities, but it doesn't really explain the shoulders, elbows. Thanks for any help or ideas.
