Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community and thank you for reaching out to us with your concern of bone pain that limits your mobility.

Anonymous, exactly where are you having this pain? Is it in your joints of your hips or knees? Is the pain worse in the morning or evening? Do you have any swelling at your joints?

Arthritis could be a cause. With rheumatoid arthritis, pain is worse in the morning and lessens as the day progresses. Conversely, with osteoarthritis, you feel fine upon awakening, but joint pain increases as the day progresses.

Ankylosing spondylitis, tuberculosis, Lyme disease, and lupus are medical conditions that can cause bone pain.

Anonymous, do you feel the pain in the body of the bone? If so, osteoporosis or more seriously, a disease within the bone, might be the cause.

You must be evaluated by your primary care physician who can determine the underlying cause of the bone pain.
