Joint Pain





    March 7th, I returned to my parents for the weekend to find my nephew was using my heater and used a multitude of blankets to keep warm that night. My cat often sleeps between my feet causing my legs to be bowed when I slept.  When I woke up the next morning with sore knees, I believed this with the help of the blankets pressing down was the cause.  Over the next week, I continued to feel sore and have pain in my knees when lifting them straight up such as to climb steps.  It moved to my left elbow which also only felt pain during the same mid-range of motion. My upper back also became sore and was painful when I leaned forward such as to sit up from bed. The back pain was the worst that weekend.  The pains persisted in my upper-back, elbow and especially my knees which were at their worst during the next week (the week of St. Patty's). I went home again that weekend for the entirety of the next week and slowly the pains left. However, I still had soreness in my left knee and elbow. I bought centrum women's multivitamin and began taking it during this week. On the 30th, I noticed pain in my wrists after being on the computer for awhile.  The wrist pain occurs now whenever I spend awhile at the computer, my elbow gains the same soreness when holding up my iPod while reading from it in bed and my knees become sore whenever I sit for a while, especially Indian style.
