Hi, I am 41 and have some of the same things going on. My body hurts like crazy in the am-although, not more than 20 mins. Sometimes my feet feel like the bones are breaking just to walk. I have had some twitching, mostly in my hand. I doubt your mattress is doing this. You need blood work. Ask your Doctor to run rheumatoid labs on you. Couldn't hurt. best of luck
I have alot of the same symptoms that I have. I personally have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Your best bet is to find a good Reuhmatologist of Pain Management doctor, so that they can better diagnoses.
My main reason for entering this forum is the fact that my stiffness now continues all day long. I have a difficult time exercising as a unfortunately very ill and cannot get my body to do anything. I twitch all over and have severe back pain, to the point that I am on Oxycodon, which scares me to death. If anyone has any ideas that may help my syptoms please let me know.
I was dx'ed with Fibro last month. Agonizing pain and stiffness, especilly in the morning. I would fall asleep with the remote and I almost had to pry it out of my hand. Now that I am on Lyrica, it is not happening, neither are the tremors I was having. But of course I have awful fatigue now and not sure if it is the drug or the fibro. Oxycodone is not that strong, it is vicodin really. I have taken much stronger things, and got off of them surprisely easy. Spelling is a problem too. lol Good luck to you all. It helps to hang around and get support here on MH. Having this stuff is pretty lonely!
Hi, I am 26 and before I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in Sept. 07; among many other annoying symptoms, I would get muscle twitches all over! Like you, it started in my right eye lid and pretty soon I was feeling twitches in muscles that I didn't even know were there. You may need to consider upping your dose of thyroid medication. While trying to become stabilized on thyroid meds I have noticed that when I am slightly hypo (and my dose needed to go up) I begin to get the twitches again. I know that MY muscle twitches are from my hypo thyroid. I would not discourage getting other suggestions checked out; but maybe try a higher dose of thyroid med first to avoid things that may be unnecessary.
