I am obese but still...
I am obese but still work and normally move around pretty well. The last 2-3 days, all the major joints (ankle, knee, hip, back, shoulder and elbow) on the left side of my body. It feels a little better when I walk but shortly after that being up makes the pain return. I’ve taken some ibuprofen but it doesn’t seem to be helping. I take cholesterol, migraine, menopause, and a couple of anxiety meds. A question you might have is have I had any type of injury to the left side of my body. A little over a month ago I was walking into the house from the garage, stepped on a slick spot after a recent rain and fell forward. The only lasting memory was a couple of bruised spots on my left leg below the knee. Could this be connected or something else?? Is this dr visit worthy or just need time for muscles to relax??

Maybe a little but overall I would have to say no

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The pain is unlikely related to the fall.
It occurred more than a month ago.
There was no major injury then.
This pain can be from an inflammation, overuse.
Ibuprofen should help.
As the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
