    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....

    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....

    Fungal athritis?

    Hi. I’m 28 years old. My mother has athritis. About two years ago I noticed knee pain after doing an 8 mike hike.it occurred again a few months later after heavy exercise. Last year I noticed increased joint pain in both knees much sooner after doing exercise. Additionally I experienced fungus rash on my underarms, lightly on my forehead, nails, scalp, and I experienced itchiness on my legs and arms. I took medication for fungus which helped with all except the itching on my arms and legs. A few....

    Need Advice

    I desperately need some advice. I am sorry this is so long. I've been pursuing a diagnosis for a longtime but haven't been given anything definite yet. I have seen a rheumatologist for the first time. He gave me several prescriptions and lab orders for blood work and x-rays and I was to return for the results in two weeks. But while at the pharmacy trying to get the prescriptions filled I found out that my insurance had dropped me. This put a hold on it all for almost 2 months while I had....
