hi...I have a lot of pain in my legs. It starts in the middle of my butt, into my hip then down my thighs to my knees. I limp when I walk. It's mostly on my right side...and it throbs so much it wakes me up at night. It doesn't hurt when I press on my knee...like you, it seems to be in the tendons or soft tissue. I don't take anything except Advil and Tylenol for pain but it doesn't help much.
When my hands are hurting, even the pads of my fingers ache.
Hope you feel better and welcome.
Hi Virgil and Welcome-
My pain is all over but seems to settle in my upper back and shoulders. And yes my hands will go numb and/or cramp up if I use them for any length of time, like writing or typing.
I take Tylenol 4,000 mg. a day for pain and have Darvocet for back-up. The Tylenol does not take the pain away, but it takes the edge off.
