Within the last year I have started having really stiff joints when I sit for any length of time or when I get up in the morning. I also wake up in the night with severe hip pain as well as stiffness and pain in my neck and back. I may be perimenopause but other than that, nothing has changed. I can't figure it out and don't understand why I am so young having these issues. I saw that there were other posts from 2009 but nothing, I can find, since then. Any suggestions?
