Pain in the wrist, shoulder and knee joints. Painful to stand. Any suggestions?

I am experiencing a great deal of pain in my wrist , shoulder and knee joints. I also have virtually no strength in my arms and legs. When I kneel down it is extremely painful to stand up again. The pain is present only when I use my arms or legs. When I am motionless there is no pain present. I have a great deal of pain when I open and close my hands. The pain is present most of the time but I have days when I am virtually pain free and have full movement of my joints and can use my arms to lift items without any pain. I am puzzled because I cannot find any information about my problems.

Thanks for writing to us.
The generalized joint pains and weakness that you are feeling is likely to be related to calcium, magnesium or vitamin D3 deficiency.; You need to get your serum values estimated and start with the appropriate supplements after consulting your orthopedician.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
