  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Every muscle in my body aches all the time. Do not know if it is related to drugs or not. Have had for years but pain is getting worse all the time.


    Bmounce on May, 18, 2014:

    I have the same problem. Do you have fibromyalgia? The pain you are describing sounds just like that. I have it but also have SLE ( Lupus) which causes a lot of pain. You can talk to you Dr. about it. There aren't any tests they can do for Fibromyalgia but you can be diagnosed by your symptoms. The most common symptoms feels like you are getting the flu bc of the way your body aches. I describe it as " the flu that never comes". You feel like your getting the flu and you have flu like symptoms but you never get the flu. You just have the aches and pain all the time. I hope you don't have it bc the pain is very hard to have a normal life. Best of luck to you...
