I'm hoping to hear from someone who may be able to relate to having sudden pain and not knowing what is causing it. For the last couple of months I've been having a lot of pain and aches( leg, knee, hip, back arms, neck, and wrist at times) fatigue, memory issues and brain fog ie. I can...

    OK, NEW SYMPTOM -- ANYBODY HAVE THIS?

    3
    Every time I think I must've reached some plateau of symptom levels, another one pops up.  This time, I have this (thankfully) brief feeling on my skin as though I had rubbed up against a cactus plant.  It literally feels like that.  Of course, nothing was there and I hadn't been outside, so I knew I was clear of that specific issue.  After a few minutes, it stopped, but has come back a few...

I enjoy Relient K, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, R.E.M., Eagles, etc....which is why I'm here. I have a bit of a problem.

    Winter woes and it’s still fall!

    It’s rare for me to post outside of check in, but you all understand my complaining and won’t make me feel bad for doing so.I’m so tired of the increased pain because it’s cold already. I’m lying here on the verge of tears because I’m in so much pain. I went to a seminar/meeting tonight and I could barely concentrate because all I could think about was the pain. I woke today to...

I found a cheat by accident that I wanted to share with you and it's because my cracked heels are finally healing is why I've decided to tell you about this. So you know how after...
