    Joint pain and no answers please help.


    I'm an 18 year old female and for the last 6/7 months I have been experiencing severe joint pain mostly in my knees, shoulders, ankles and wrists. I feel it's important to add that I had a coil fitted around this time and shortly after became pregnant, unfortunately I had a termination and had my coil removed. However it has now been 3/4 months since this has happened and I still have these pains.

    I've been tested for absolutely everything and it's all come back negative (e.g. Thyroid, arthritis) I was told I am perfectly healthy and that it could be down to stress. I'm at my wits end because the pain is unbearable, although it comes and goes it's awful, but I don't know if it could've been brought on by stress due to my situation. I've also experienced swelling in my ankle and I couldn't walk on it for a few days until eventually the pain goes and moves to another joint. I really don't know what it could be or what I should do.
