Where in your lower arms is the pain located? Can you describe it further? Duloxetine is also used for chronic pain Your pain may have increased as a result of being taken off this medication.

Hi it's the side of my arms. Bone area between wrist and elbow.
Also I get them when I feel too much stressed and worry. Could this be trigger of the pain the stress?
Many thanks
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 4 months ago.

There is nothing medicslly serious that would cause bone pain in a young person like this. Stress may be the issue so you may be on the right track there.

I think your pain may be stress related and the day to day stress of caring for 6 closely spaced children. I doubt it is anything serious It sounds like you need to take some time for your self to get your health in order.

Hi unfortunately all my 6 children have been take in care over 3 years now. My eldest is 18 living with his father.
15, 12,10 year old are long term fostering.
Youngest 2 boys are now officially adopted.I have no children in my care any more.
IF I was to have any further children I only would have one more not anymore cuz of the number of c-sections I have had.
Medically would there be any risk?
Asma
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 4 months ago.

It would not be advisable to have any more children AFter 4 c sections the risk to both you and the baby is too high.

For women, sertraline can be a good start. It would help you to see a counselor
