I am an otherwise fit, healthy, active 36 year old of a 5 month old baby boy. For about 1 month now I've had so much aching in my feet and hands equally on both sides. The thought of twisting off a jar lid or using a fork to cut my food is painful. I do not have any swelling, redness, rash, or any other symptoms that I can think of. I started taking ibuprofen 600 mg about once a day and I can't really say that it helps. I am hoping it is just related to new mom hormones but that would be too easy. I was also hoping this would have passed by now. I am getting worried that it has lingered for over a month. I notice my hands and feet even when just sitting. I switched to wearing shoes with better support, even just around the house. I'm worried that I may have early stages of rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia or even lupus. Any input?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
