Ive tried to find the cause before, but no success.
after waking up I last night with a particularly bad one in one knee, I decided to have another go at googling it. I've never been to the doctor because its not bad enough to really bother me and also I feel a bit silly going about something I've suffered from for 20 odd years!
I dont get it in both arms and legs at once, but one or both legs together, or one or both arms together and different pain scales.
there is no pattern as far as i can like a dull ache that gets worse in waves sometimes.
It usually goes away a week or so after the stress has subsided.
The aching joints can feel quite debilitating and I start to get depressed as it affects my mood as well as my ability to exercise which in turn makes me even more grumpy, irritable and depressed. The only thing that works for me is to rest as much as possible until the stress at work/home has subsided again before taking up running/cycling/swimming again as before.
Even qualified doctors can't diagnose over the internet, so do bear that in mind when seeking or giving advice.
When I am really tired my joints ache, my leg bones also ache quite strongly especially when in bed.
Recently I've started to get similar pains in my arms, again when I'm tired/not had enough sleep.
The pain stops me sleeping, but Paracetamol fixes then very quickly and allows me to sleep.
i have a 'feeling' in my left arm this evening but can't work out if its phantom ache or very mild ache!!
on average ive been getting it in at least one leg every 1-2 weeks and it usually gets quite bad for at least a short period of time.
