Is this some kind of arthritis /bone pain?

My hands are very stiff and sore.. Worst when I wake up in the morning (I can barely move them).. Starting to filter out to the rest of the day too (though not as intense as when I wake up).

Also have some kind of pain in one leg - have had carpal tunnel syndrome before and it feels the same - that bone deep ache that's like toothache. Again, primarily at night when in bed, but my ankle is starting to ache during the day.

Has anyone experienced similar?

Might be a silly question but have you recently had a baby?

Gosh. No. 28 years ago! I'm 49 grin

Could be arthritis I think. I have it in a few places and have a similar sounding type of pain. I'm no expert though.

Sorry, meant to say that the whole worse in the night etc part isn't something I've noticed with mine, but that "bone deep ache" is just how I'd describe the type of pain it is.

I had the bone pain. It turned out to be severe Vit D deficiency.

I think you should see your GP

Just wondered te the baby as I’ve just had Dd (Shes no2) and afternoon both her and ds I’ve had hand pain.

I’m seeing an accupuncturist to help with this.

Is your neck tight? My shoulder and neck muscles are ridiculously tight. Which has lead to pain in my hands too.

I'm 52 and having these type of symptoms. It's a permanent deep down ache in most of my joints. I've got a GP appointment tomorrow about it.

Thanks everyone. It's a relatively recent thing but definitely getting worse. I've been off work on holiday all week and my hands are still aching as if I had done a whole week of work. In fact I am sitting here getting shooting pains in my fingers. My elbows are sore to the touch. It's a real worry as I have a physically demanding job.

I used to get terrible joint pain and stiffness before I was diagnosed with an autoimmune thyroid disease. Symptoms were worse if I ate anything with gluten in. Might be worth having your thyroid levels checked.

Are your doctor. Request calcium, PTH and vitamin D along with anything else they recommend.

I had blood tests for u&e, lft, bone profile, tft, fbc, crp & vit d and they have all come back normal. It must be my age! Last night my arms ached so much the pain woke me up and at 2am I had to take some paracetamol. I didn't want to take ibuprofen on an empty stomach. The ache isn't so bad during the day. However I suffer from restless legs and take pramipexole but I'm sure my partner would tell me if I was also thrashing my arms around at night.
