I am twenty years old and my bones hurt. Could it be expanding pains?

March 18th, 2014

Question by allhaildeann: I am twenty years old and my bones harm. Could it be developing pains?

For the past couple weeks, I maintain getting random pains in my legs, arms, chest, ribs, and shoulders, and it just feels like the bones harm. It really is not the joints but just like the bones. Nowadays I have had them specifically badly. They typically only final a couple of minutes but today it really is lasted virtually all day. I have been a vegetarian for 8 many years, even though I do drink tons of milk and eat a lot of dairy, but I never know if it could have some thing to do with that.
Anyway, do you believe I could still be expanding/encountering growing pains at twenty many years previous? I am a woman by the way. If not what else could it be?

Very best solution:

No, def not growing pains females create prior to males and males generally completely produce height-sensible close to 18-19.

    Sounds like Arthritis…but you should see a doctor if it bothers you that much

    No, women stop growing at 18.. most around 16.
    It could be over exercising or a deficiency of some sort.

    It’s not Arthritis. That would be in your joints. You too old for growing pains. I would go and see a doctor. It might have something to do with your diet or could be something more serious.

    Actually, many doctors do not believe that “growing pains” are an actual medical diagnosis in the first place. There’s a big debate about what actually causes those pains, but, whatever they are, they stop by around age 15 or younger.
    It is likely that your pain is actually in your muscles. Widespread pain is definitely something that you should have checked out by a doctor. Fibromyalgia would be at the extreme end of the sprectrum, but it could be a symptom of any number of illnesses, ranging from very minor to more severe.
    Good luck and hope you get to feeling better!
