Justin's  Story

Chronic joint pain.

All joints - elbows, hips, knees, ankles. Totally changed my quality of life. Can hardly get around. Hard to walk, especially up and down stairs. Migraines at work. Hard to get to work. No financial impact yet, however, very hard to concentrate at work and have been talked to about my lack of motivation due to migraines.

Can not due anything physical with family or otherwise. I'm in the early stages and obviously very concerned.

Terrible dreams and lack of sleep have been a problem with functioning at work also.
