    Hi Everyone,

    I have not posted a message here for a long time but have been keeping up with the posts. They are SO helpful.
    For the past 3 months I have had unbearable pain in my elbows and forearms..... a bit like tennis elbow but much
    more intense in pain. It feels like I have been lifting loads and loads of bricks!!! I keep trying to stretch my arms and keep feeling these tight muscular type pains. I don't know why all of a sudden the pain has intensified in my elbows as before that it was worse in my thighs.
    I am a child care worker and have been for the past 16 years. I have to work as I dont have any other source of income being a single mum. I also (like many others) dont get enough restorative sleep and the ambien I have been taking is not really working anymore. I am at a loss as to what to do. Can anyone give me any suggestions? Will the pain I feel now move yet again?

    Thanks for listening,

    Sue
