Need some help please.
This may be a little long. Thank you for listening. I woke up one morning about 3 weeks ago both of my hands were burning and my fingers were numb. The pain spread up to my elbows and shoulders. I called my dr. We thought this was coming from me being stupid and trying to shake a vending machine that wouldn't give me my chips. LOL Well she put me on muscle relaxers and motrin. This would help some but not completely. I am now waking up 2 and 3 times at night with my hands and fingers hurting so bad they almost feel broken, and they are still numb. Well this pain has moved to my whole body. My hands are the same but now every joint in my body hurts. My neck, shoulders, back, jaws, knees, and my ankles. I have trouble getting up or rolling over in bed because my muscles feel like i've had a very long work out. My dr sent me to an orthopedic dr for my hands. All he did was say he thought I had inflamation everywhere and put me on steroids. I'm in my 3rd week of this pain now, no more steroids and my pain is worse than it ever was. I can not bend my fingers in the mornings. I am still waking up all hours of the night in pain. I am so tired of this now. Can anyone give me any ideas of what this might be or which way to go now? Thank you all very much.
