hi, I have very bad neck pain for some time where my head feels too heavy for neck and the only relief I get is by looking up to the ceiling and pushing my head all the way back. My neck 'buzzes' and feels like its throbbing and bleeding if I dont sleep, but the irony is that the pain prevents me from sleeping. I wake often in the night with numbness and burning in my hands. Lately, my lower back is in excruciating pain if I spend more than 5 minutes walking - it feels tight, with spasms and cramping and pain like a belt around the middle. My hips ache and its so bad I can'tstand - the only relief is from sitting down or bending over.
My right leg goes all numb and funny and my right hip feels numb too. Last 2 weeks I have noticed that my legs are swollen and even my hands swell when I wake up in the morning. I'm not sleeping more than 3 hours a night and last night I was so frustrated that I cried. I've only had 2 periods in the last 6 months and I'm 34. I get PMT, but no periods
