A few times a year all the joints in my body seem to get sore as hell. It completely derails my workouts when this happens. It can last anywhere from 6-8 weeks.
When I say all my joints, I mean both shoulders, both elbows, both wrists, both knees, both feet. I know feet aren’t joints, but they hurt like hell right now so I tossed 'em in too.
Then it goes away about as suddenly as it comes on. During the times when I don’t hurt, I feel great, and start making gains again working out 5-6 days a week.
It started again about a month ago. Workouts have sucked since then. Anti-inflammatories like Advil & Aleve don’t help.
Last time it happened was in April, but from June until mid September I was great.
I saw my doctor back in early June, and he ran a bunch of tests on me. Said I had zero inflammation in my system (so Flameout really works!) and my numbers were all in the normal range except thyroid was not functioning properly. He suggested I start drinking distilled water to avoid fluoride. Since I started feeling great within a couple weeks of that visit, I figured maybe it was some reaction to the fluoride, but now it’s back. And it sucks. Any ideas?
