Since April I noticed my knees started to hurt equally in both. It feels swollen but doesn't look like it. I used to run a lot and assumed it was just sore. It has never gone away and progressively my feet started to have the same feelings. Feels swollen and sore all the time, equally on both sides, almost like I just got done running.
Went to doctor, got blood tests, negative. Went to knee doctor for x-ray. Nothing there. Took anti-inflammatory by prescription (nothing). Went to Physical therapist, got a little better, but mostly just stretching, flexibility. Went to Rheumotologist, and negative on all blood tests for arthritis.
What do I do now? Is this the mysterious "chronic pain" thing. The worst feeling is that I can't stand up for more than a few minutes. I can't sit with my knees crossed. Hurts all day long. And above all, it wakes me up at night. Feet are on fire. Any ideas where I should turn?
I should note my profession is a graphic designer, I sit all day long. I stretch a lot, i'm only 25 years old. I'm thin. No arthritis in the family, eat extremely healthy. Take in a lot of omega-3 foods.
