At first I thought I was having joint pain but I believe it is my tendons and it causes my joints and muscles to be so tight and stiff. I dread going to bed at night because I'll wake up and try to turn over but my legs are frozen. It takes quite a while before I can get my joints to bend. In the morning I'm like a turtle on its back trying to get upright. Lots of pain and can hardly walk the first hour or so in the morning. It is starting to do the same in my right shoulder. Had to quite working because of the pain and also clumsiness of walking. Occassional muscle spasms because of this. Is anyone out there dealing with this? If so what are you doing or taking for the pain. It seems as though getting rid of the pain helps me with mobility. I've taken aleve & ibuprofin for pain but my LLMD says I should not use anti-inflamitory meds for very long. LLMD has a series of shots (30-50 shots) injected next to the bone that will get my tendons back in good shape (he says), but at $90 pr
shot and no insurance I can't afford that. Any suggestions for the pain? Anyone with personal experience with these shots?
I've been on doxy, now on cefton and my doc says the abx should be the best pain reliever. Well doc, guess what ....... it ain't happening. How long does it take being on abx for this pain to go away?
Thank you all and God bless,
