Muscle and joint stiffness

Postby janette-jones » Fri Dec 29, 2017 6:24 am

Hi, I just turned 58. Six months ago I needed to drop some weight, so I did. I dropped 15 pounds in 2 weeks on a vegetarian/herbal program. Since I dropped the weight I've been having problems with muscle or joint stiffness. At first I thought maybe I depleted something that maintains my body and then I wondered if not exercising had something to do with it. I can't sit still for very long and when I wake up in the morning it's a struggle. I feel pain mostly in my shoulders and hamstrings. Does anyone have any ideas or maybe had the same problems about this issue? I'm too young to be walking around like an old lady and I'm a very active person. Thank you for any feedback. :D

So sorry it has taken me so long to see your post.
Can you tell us more about the foods you are eating...any new supplements? Do you supplement Magnesium and Calcium...a deficiency of those causes pain and stiffness
How are your bowel movements?
How is your sleep, what time do you go to many hours do you usually get?
Swelling or Heat in joints?
