i was tested a while back for osteo-arteristis (sp??) but it wasnt it (or so they tell me), my ankles, knees, hips, shoulders and wrists just randomly start aching sometimes!
its very frustrating as it can wake me up at night and then cant get comfy again!!
pain-killers dont really help that much iv found.
maybe its a side-effect of meds of some kind, maybe its just a manifestation of exhaustion in general...? i dont really know! sorry i couldnt be much help, hope cork is growing on ya and you're all settled in!!
