    Very young to be having joint pains?

    I am almost 19 and having random joint pains pretty often, maybe a couple times a month. It will usually start with one joint such as my shoulder and within like half an hour all the joints of my arm will start aching. Sometimes I will just wake up and every joint in both of my legs will ache(hips, ankles and knees just throb). It isn't chronic, it will usually just last a day or half a day and topical pain cream usually does the trick but I just feel like I'm pretty young for this... I am....

    Someone please help me

    Please help me I am 25 years old. Mostly healthy. I have had joint pain in my fingers and hands for as long as I can remember. The pain gradually got worse as I got older.

    Coming out of remission?

    I was diagnosed with RA in May of 2014. I took Methotrexate and various different biologics, trying to find one that didn't give me petechial rashes. I was on Enbrel last year. In November I was diagnosed with breast cancer, so I stopped all RA medications in preparation for surgery. Then after surgery my doctors told me to stay off those meds during radiation as well, which occurred in February and March. After finishing all my treatment, I went back to my rheumatologist, who asked how I was....

    Knee swelling, cold leg and foot, and tingling in toes

    I'm posting this here because I have seen others post knee problems here- A few days ago, I injured my knee playing soccer. I heard a pop in my knee and was taken to the ER. They took several x-rays and said it was probably a sprain. It has been four days since then. Two nights ago I noticed my foot was extremely cold and my knee and foot were swelling and becoming discolored. I went back to the ER for a possible blood clot, which there thankfully wasn't. However the physician never gave....

    Severe groin pain front to back.

    SI pain. Groin area front to back. Shoots down my leg. Ankle hurts bad. Had 3 doctors say 3 different diagnosis. Waiting for 2nd MRI approval on hip and muscle. Neither of them hurt. MRI of lower spine shows herniated disc which I've had for many years. Been suffering from sciatica. This is a new pain, just started 3 months ago. I can't do my job. Pain meds aren't helping much.

    SI pain

    I've been to 3 different doctors and one said my herniated disc, one said torn groin muscles, one said SI joint. Doing a second MRI on my hip and groin muscles to rule out this. I have been having pain, severe at times to where I can't walk. Still waiting for someone to actually find the cause. The pain is in the groin area, front to back. Hurts down my leg especially around my ankle. I loose my balance and have been missing work.

    ankle joint inflammation..

    I wasn’t sure what category to ask this question under so I chose all I could for some answers. I’m 16 years old and I have seen three doctors about my left ankle (only one affected). It’s given me trouble for nearly a year now and the doctor diagnosed it as an inflamed ankle joint. The end of my foot swells along with my toes but my ankle itself does not. However, it aches constantly. It also has tingling and numbness randomly. He prescribed prednisone to relieve the inflammation + swelling and....
