I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Why do my elbows and feet ache after working for more than 3 hours and the pain radiates to the entire body ?

after being on my feet and working for two to three hours my feet and elbows hurt really bad. I do good until i go to work or walk around for two or more hours. then my feet start to hurt really bad. Then I feel it in my arms and hips and lower back. i thought it was gout at first and took meds for it. don t even faze it. Does anybody have any of these systoms or have an idea of what it might be.

My Dear Graddy,
with the above said options also get your Haemoglobin, platelet count and total leucocyte count done. You seem to fatigue early. The pain you experience seems to be muscular. So you might want to screen your serum calcium as well. with all this you'll have a ready diagnosis. It might turn out normal though, in which case all you need to do is reduce your weight( if you are obese) and do regular workouts to increase muscle strength.
Good luck

49 year old women no medical problems or prescribed meds. Had cold feet and warm upper body. Went to sleep for 6 hours after taking Tylenol and no longer have described symptom other than pain in Left thumb could be due to insect bite located in Georgia or driving 3 hours a day to/from work.

hello. I am a 52 yr. old woman and not obese (120 lbs.) I used to work-out often, but now it hurts just to walk the dog each I don t exercise other than that. I have several symptoms throughout my body and have been sent to various doctors for each problem but no one really looks at the whole body picture . A rheumatologist said fibromyalgia but I feel like that s a generic answer to multi-symptom pain. I have varicose veins and my feet are constantly cold and turn purple on occasion so I m fairly certain I have some sort of circulation problem (though trying not to be a hypochondriac - I try not to worry about blood clots ;-) lower legs ache below the knee joint (where most of the varicose veins are) and gets worse with walking or standing. today I got a pain in the side of my foot in the shower (purple feet with white spots when depressed with finger) that feels like an electric shock! I have had several of these shock pains before as well. I have severe pain in my hips and shoulders/neck, , knees and big toes (many of these MRI or Xray tested) and supposedly do not have arthritis. I ve had blood tests but nothing that shows anything serious. I have been in several car accidents: in one, a drunk driver hitting us landed me in Intensive Care with a lacerated liver...that eventually healed itself - but required blood transfusions. I want to be active again and wish I could determine the cause of my constant joint pain. Any thoughts??? Thanks.

i am 53 years old. I am overweight. I have been dieting for months. I have diabetes. I know I should exercise, but my feet kill me. I wear good shoes. over the past several years, i have become very weak. i have difficulty walking any distance, or upstairs. My feet hurt all the time. They ache so bad and will have sharp pains in them. I do not think it has to do with the diabetes. Sometimes they will even feel like a bone is broke in them. I feel bad most of the time and can not get anyone to listen to me. They give me b 12 vitamin. I have sleep apenea, and have been on a cpap machine for years, I have never felt like it helps at all, other than controls my snoring. I supposedly have narcolepsy also, and am on medication for that too. I think if it was not for that I could sleep 24 hours a day. I am so tired all the time. But my feet are my main problem seems like. I know i need to exercise, but My feet hurt so bad I don t want to walk. i still work and by the end of the day, i just want to get off of my feet.
