I am a 28 year old female and have had a healthy lifestyle without many aches or pains. In the last week I have had lower back aches which has since moved down to my hips, knees, legs, and feet, as well as, up in my wrists and elbows. My bones and joints feel achy and uncomfortable. I also have a sensation of burning in my lower legs and feet and abdominal pains, not cramping, not bloating, just uncomfortable feeling. I continue to have lower back pain, aches in my joints regularly and my abdominal pains come and go. I am not pregnant and have not changed my diet. Can anyone tell me what might be causing these aches and pains and how I can treat these symptoms and feel normal and comfortable again?
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
The symptoms can be due to compression of spinal nerves. The compression can be high up or at multiple levels. Osteoarthritis like changes and ankylosing spondylitis could be the cause. It could also be due to low Vit B12, low Vit D or low calcium. Disorders of thyroid and parathyroid glands too should be looked into. Consult your GP first and then you may need to consult a neurologist. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Hope this helps. Take care
