    Need help, all over body pain

    Okay, I need help... several doctors, mri, xray, physical and no answers. Lower body pain, started in back and hips, had steroid shots, rf ablation, and now pain is also in my knee. Bad pain in knee that now goes through leg and down to ankle.(xray showed nothing, scheduled for mri) Starting the other day, the other leg now hurts too. I don't know what else to do or try and the doctors don't seem to get it. Currently on steroid pack and if no help, doc says pelvic mri or nerve induction study. I just seem to think it's something else, kind of affects my whole body. Bones in neck are crackly. Only thing that is fine is arms and hands. Turned 50 last year, is it all down hill from here?

    Have you been tested for autoimmune diseases like lupus or fybromyalgia? I know that you hurt all over like with different types of arthritis.

    RE: Need help, all over body pain

    There are of course other issues that may be causing the pain that will not be seen on an MRI such as Fibromyalgia, Thyroid issues, Ehlers Danlos, Lupus, and arthritis just to name a few. If you are not sure what those things do a little research and see if any of those fit some of the things you are feeling. Unfortunately pain is an issue that a lot of the time Doctors will say is in your head but just know that they cannot feel what your are feeling and your physician treats you like you are crazy then find a new one. I had pain for many years before I finally got a diagnosis. You do have to be persistant most of the time. Good luck I hope you get things figured out. let me know if you have any questions.
