Hi,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am the moderator for this topic. I've been trying to find a Professional to assist you, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected, as the Professionals come online at varying times. I wonder whether you would like to continue waiting for an answer…hopefully it won’t take too much longer. Please let me know, and I will continue my search. If you’d prefer not to wait, please tell me, and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!

At this point, there are several things that come to mind. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or polymyalgia rheumatica.

Unfortunately, without a physical examination and testing, there is no way to know which of these (or some other condition) may be causing this.

I would suggest discussing this ongoing problem with your physician. If your primary care physician is unable to find a cause or appropriate treatment, you may need to see a rheumatologist (arthritis specialist).
