i have some sort of atypical spondyarthropathy. my rhuemy thought its AS but it isnt or at least isnt typical - hopefully its not named after me. i have the entire constellation of problems:
----sclerosis of sacroiliac
----stiff neck and shoulders
I'm not sure but I think I was drunk for so many years that my age caught up with me without me knowing it! I drank around a 1/2 of a fifth a day after my Mom passed away for close to 4 years. I was functional working full time, taking care of my children, husband and dogs but I was numb from 4 to bedtime everyday. The stopping was really easy because I was really sick of being drunk all the time. However this pain in the evenings occur at the same time I would be drinking. I started taking non aspiron pain relievers yesterday and it helped! I've never heard of anyone having joint and body aches after becoming sober so I thought I'd through the question out there. Thanks for the comments! Take Care...
