I found this forum on google and thought that it might be helpful to me because of some of the symptoms I have been experiencing recently.
I am a new mom. My son is four months old and since I had him I have been experiencing a lot of pain in my body... hips, legs, arms, hands, back etc. I have never experienced pain like this before and I am becoming very frustrated because doctors seem to be baffled by my symptoms. I have been seeing a chiropractor and went to a rheumatologist.
This is really starting to stress me out and it is affecting my ability to care for my son. He is a big boy, weighing 16lb at 4 months and I wonder if all of this pain in my body could simply be due to carrying him often and nursing him throughout the day. My hands and arms burn, my hips are achy and sore running down my leg and the symptoms seem to come and go being worse sometimes more then others. Any insight or opinions from anyone who has experienced anything similar would be greatly appreciated.
