Hello, I am a 24 year old female. For the past six years I have had pain in my neck, lower back shoulders, elbows, and knees. For the last year my symptoms have gotten worse. I have joint pain, with the greatest being in my knees, spine, and hands. My left arm and left leg hurt from time to time. I lose grip of things like the coffee mate in the morning and have dumped two bottles in the past month. I have extremely tense muscles in my legs when i wake up. My right knee swells a little bit every couple of months. My knees and hands make a "popping" sound when i bend down and shake someone's hand. I had horrible dizziness and fatigue last night. I went to the doctor to talk about my back and he said that i have a "rotated vertebrae" in my spine. I have not told him about the other symptoms because frankly I hate doctors and I just want to get out as soon as i get in! But all of it is really starting to bother me. What should I do? What kind of doctor should i go see? what tests do i ask for? I would like to be a normal 24 year old.
