 When I was a teen I did lots of sports, gym, dance etc. I had a few falls and injuries but nothing major. I have been to several practitioners to help with the pain I experience (built up pain) 

Problems:                                                                           I get a sharp, burning or aching pain all over my knees (Morely on the sides tho), I have lower back pain, pain in my ribs, and burning sensations in my feet. Along with this I get hot flushes, dizzy ness, and if I walk around for like 5mins my legs and arms start to go puffy, red and purple (like there’s no circulation). 

I have had ultra sounds on my veins and tests to see if I have blood clots or anything like that and everything was negative. 

I’ve been using pain killers and creams to help the pain because it’s bad. I was just looking in the mirror at my back and noticed bruising on my middle lower back and is very sore. And I know for a fact I haven’t bumped it or anything because I haven’t been doing anything for the past weeks. 

I’ve never had very good posture and I use to get emmet therapy and I was told I moved a disc in my back out of place (idk what it was tho, I can’t remember). 

I can’t afford to do anything else based on guessing games and don’t have many options left. I’m in constant pain and can’t do anything. I do simple excersize and everything like that so that doesn’t seem to be the problem. 

Could this be a mental/psychological problem? Or does anyone know anything at all or have any ideas about what’s wrong? I have a few other weird ‘body functions’ but I won’t go into that coz this is long enough! 

If anyone could help or leave some advice or ideas that’d be greatly appreciated as I’m limited at the moment!

    welcome to spine-health

    bruising should have medical investigation if you haven't injured that area.

    there are no medical professional on this site, so unfortunately with cannot diagnose and it is against forum rules for members to give medical advice.

    if your weird 'body functions' are connected to your bladder or bowel please seek urgent medical advice.

    i have added two links below to help new members with information and these also contain the forum rules.  there is lots of material to research on spine-health that will give you the power of knowledge.
