My entire life I have had random, aching pains in my limbs. Happens at any time of the day, but mostly at night. My earliest memories are of my mother rubbing my legs and me crying. I've been to many doctors, and have found nothing out. I was 17 when they started giving me a narcotic pain killer and it's the only thing that worked, but they didn't bother finding out why I was in pain. So i gave up (i'm turning 25 in dec.) until now my 4 year old comes to me at night telling me his legs hurt. So for my son, I will continue looking for an answer, but if he wasn't in pain, i would give up. it's so bad, i can't use a manual can opener, right now typing this my arms are aching. i had thought it was arthritis, but i guess it's not, and it's not even in my joints, it's in my muscles. so yes, i gave up on this for years.

It really is I have had every test ran at least twice and they still have no clue. I have been on tons of meds and changed my diet and nothing Now my doc calls and says hey we need you here for another blah blah test and I said NO
