Joint pain, Muscle weakness, and Fatigue
Around week 18 I started getting fatigue and weakness  pretty bad. By the end of week 20 my knee joints had started aching all the time. In week 21 my hip and shoulder are hurting now. I mentioned the knee pain to my PA and she just said "I don't think that has anything to do with treatment". Has anyone else experienced this joint pain and what did you do about it? Any ideas would be appreciated!!
