Joint pains

Jun 08, 2019 5:38 PM

My joints always hurt and dislocate. I have experienced pain for a long time about 5 years and it just gets worse. I’m only 14 and I live on painkillers. I bloat everytime I eat and my stomach really hurts. I have swollen eyes and I’m always tired. Any advice?!

There's others with similar symptoms as far as dislocating joints. I'm sorry for your chronic pain. I would see a doctor as far as your stomach is concerned. There's other young people on here that might be able to give you advise.

Welcome to the community thetorturedflower! I'm sorry to hear about your chronic pain, both in your joints and your stomach. What type doctor are you seeing that prescribes the pain meds & did they give you a diagnosis on your joints? It sounds similar to others here who have a hypermobility issue in their joints. When they see this post they will be the best to give you supportive info.

As for your stomach pain, is this new or is it also long term? Have you seen a gastroenterologist for it? This type doctor would be best to see, especially if it's been long term symptoms. If it's new you should contact the doctor who prescribes your pain med; some meds can cramp you up or cause worse symptoms. Make sure to eat something before you take the med. Along with the stomach pain, have you noticed a change in your bowel movements? I have Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and it fluctuates between constipation & diarrhea, for 40 years. It can cause bloating, pain, & general ill feeling. Although IBS can't be cured, the symptoms can be improved with dietary changes. But it takes tracking what you eat & if a specific food causes symptoms, then eliminating that food. I can only eat small amounts of all fresh fruits, especially melons, due to it causing severe diarrhea. But because I have an autoimmune issue called Sjogrens I stay dehydrated and need extra water (a lot extra) to prevent constipation. I have also learned that I have a gluten sensitivity and have cut way back on breads & cereals (rarely eat them), which has helped with the bloating & cramping. Sending you hugs love & prayers that you can find out what is going on & find ways to relieve symptoms! πŸ™‚β€πŸ™πŸŒΌ

It is called hypermobility and EDS for short. There are lots of support groups on FB, even check your local hospital . I wish I could remember what EDs stands for.
