I've had pain in my knees for about a year and a half now. The pain makes it difficult to walk, kneel, and stand up. If I am kneeling and I stand, I can only describe the pain as a burning sensation- almost like a build up of lactic acid after running? My back pain radiates from mid back right down to my hip on my right side. It does feel more muscular than joint, but I'm not sure. I've been referred for physiotherapy, my doctor thinks that whatever started the pain caused me to walk funny/move funny and physiotherapy would fix that. I'm a bit doubtful though.
Recently I've been getting pins and needles quite often in my hands for no reason, and I've had some stiffness in my shoulders/arms.
I'm only 19 and a bit scared. I want answers from my doctors and the pain gets so bad that I find it hard to drag myself out of bed.
I was just wondering if anyone else had similar issues and had any advice?
