Last night I could barely sleep. I am experiencing severe joint pain and especially some excruciating pain on my left side in and around the ribs. It seems as if the whole left side is exacerbated because of this. I can barely walk and this is bad since I have a sick 9 year-old to take care of. One thing that I love about this forum and others like this is that I can talk about what I am going through and nobody will think that I am crazy.
