Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Musculoskeletal pain is the pain which affects the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, or nerves. It can be acute or chronic, it can be localized in one area, or widespread. What exactly are your symptoms? It is not a serious condition though, It is most often caused by an injury, stress and strain, falls, fracture, sprain, dislocations and by direct blow to the muscle. If the pain is severe, you may require analgesics, Physiotherapy, and heat compresses for local application and Stretching exercises. Get adequate rest and avoid stress Practice relaxation techniques like Yoga and Meditation.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

I have been diagnosed with osteoporosis several years ago. I ve been taking Evista for this. The osteo is mainly in my lower spine and left hip. Recently, within the past 2 or 3 months, I ve been experiencing significant pain in my elbows, upper arms, knees and thighs. It s getting to the point where just performing normal daily activities is so painful, I m not certain if I can go on like this. I understand that Evista may cause musculoskeletal pain, which I did experience when I first started using this medication, however, this is different.

My husband was examined because of onset of left chest wall pain after he had an adjustment for his back where he crossed his arms over his chest and there was compression against the chest. The pain started a couple hours after that and increased until he went to ER about 36 hours later. He was diagnosed with pneumonia. No cough, fever or recent respiratory illness. My husband has a lot of musculoskeletal pain from arthritis and strenuous life style. He is 63. Is it possible that there is more to this than pneumonia
