Joint pain and stiffness

(6 Posts)

My dd has her baby 5 weeks ago and in the last week has had increasing joint stiffness and pain to the extent that she can barely pick up the baby.
Luckily she is staying with us so I can help, but I am wondering if anyone else has had this and how long it lasted for them?
She is bottle feeding so can take painkillers but they are barely touching it .

Not replies but no problem
Just wanted to add that my daughter was diagnosed with low vitamin B12 , D , folic acid and iron
So if you feel similar get some blood tests or take some vitamins

Thanks @Mumof3dogs I am 7.5 wks pp from a Stillbirth and was actually starting to think I was having some kind of physical manifestation of all the grief, keep waking up in the night with the sorest fingers ever, really crampy and unable to bend them. Will pop to Holland &b and get some of these vitamins but also book into gp for bloods.
