    Chronic joint pain NO SWELLING, All joints, Unresponsive to standard treatments

    Hi, I have been living with chronic joint pain all my life (at least as long as I can remember, I'm 25). The pain is in ALL my joints, from neck to toes (shoulder to fingers too) if it's a moving joint it hurts. I have ZERO swelling or inflammation. I also am hypermobile, so I essentially have excessive range of motion. I have tried nearly every type of pain relief otc to prescription. Most opioids of have no effect, some increase the pain.

    Hi, I am 19 years old and it has been almost a month now that I am having left chest pain/discomfort.

I have pretty much quit while I've had this chest pain. I noticed when I would....

    undiagnosed kidney/back pain

    Four weeks ago I was walking through the grocery store when I suddenly felt a very sharp pain in my lower right abdomen. I brushed it off, but by the next morning, the pain was still severe and I was now feeling it in my mid-back,  right side. The next day I went to my Family doctor who sent me to have an ultrasound on my abdomen. They also took blood and urine samples. The ultrasound showed nothing, but there where traces of blood in my urine. Because of how severe the pain is, my doctor asked me....
  • Severe, stabbing pain in Left knee mostly when stepping up a stair.

    Please help... I fell on my left knee last October (2016) and ever since I have been experiencing stabbing pain in that knee usually just when I step up a stair with my left leg first (I'm working on not doing that anymore). Also it happens sometimes when I turn my left leg while keeping my foot straight.

    Reversal of cervical lordosis

    Hi, I had an x-ray done and was told I had a reversal of the cervical lordosis. I was wondering, what type of activities or stretches I could do to help relieve this? Actually, I would like to know pretty much everything there is I can do to either fix this or make it better. For instance, is there some sort of neck brace I could get which I could wear at night or in my free time? If anyone can tell me anything I would be very grateful. Thanks.

    How cope with chronic lower back pain.

    I've been suffering from lower back pain for over 20 years ago and I have gone through 5 plus surgeries, including a fusion, just over a year ago. I have been taking all sorts of meds and therapy for as long as I can remember. Nothing seems to work. I feel that this chronic conditions will have to be tolerated for the rest of my life. I'll be happy with any other sources available in dealing with my condition.

    Knee hurts to the touch but not to walk

    Hello! Two weeks ago I feel on a relatively hard floor and landed mostly on my left knee. Ever since my knee has been incredibly tender to touch in one spot but absolutely no pain while walking or moving it. It is also very painful when I kneel on it. The pain seems to almost be more from the skin vs anything else. Anyone have any idea what's causing it or what I can do? Thank you.

    Chronic Hand Pain

    Hello! About ten years ago I developed pain in my hand that would not go away. I did data entry during the day and worked on illustrations all night. The pain came on while I was drawing and would not go away, so I stopped drawing. I still have pain in my hand, though; and some days I cannot even write my name. I can still pick things up and brush my teeth, but holiding a pen causes considerable pain. I have already been to an orthopaedic and a rheumatologist, but they cannot figure out what is wrong....
