Hi Tommy~

First off, welcome to the forum. Then, have you checked with your doctor about this pain? There are lots of things it could be and your doc can start eliminating candidates until he/she finds what's causing it.

One thing that's helpful is to keep a pain diary. Each day write down what kind of pain you have and where it is, the time of day and anything you may have done to help the problem. Then take the diary with you to all doctor appointments you have and ask them to review it with you. This will give them a good picture of what is going on and speed up the process of diagnosis. It will also show them that you are serious about this since you're taking the time to document it.

I live with daily pain and mine if partly from fibromyalgia which is a muscle condition and partly arthritis. I also have Chronic fatigue syndrome which is very frustrating. You might look into those 2 forums to see if anything sounds familiar. But first of all make an appointment with your doctor and get the ball rolling.

Why are you "really exhausted"? How old is your bed? How old/new is your pillow? Have you tried sleeping in a recliner?

I'm not trying to minimize your symptoms. We must look at everything...every possible aspect of what might be causing them.

I was experiencing excruciating neck pain that radiated down my arms. My chiropractor asked me if I had changed pillows...I had! I went back to using my old pillow and the symptoms disappeared!

Sometimes, it's simple. Sometimes, it's not.
