Okay so its best to start from the beginning to get to the point I think I am sick and I don't know from what. My ENTIRE body is in pain (not pins and needles pain) just feels very stiff all the time, because of this I have ZERO energy, I thought maybe that this is signs that I have not been taking my vitamins and started to take them again, but the pain hasn't stopped. I still have almost no energy left and all I want to do is sleep. Despite the fact that I am always tired too.

I am 28 years old and currently weight about 250lb im 5'9" are these very early warning signs that something worse is about to set in? I have no medical insurance and this is the only place I can turn too. Please someone help.

My wt and height are similar to yours and so are the symptoms that you are describing. The only difference is that I am 43. For our height and wt, our bodies are not built to carry that much wt. for long periods of time before it buckles under the stress of it. I think you need a sleep study to see if you have obstructive sleep apnea. People our size usually don't get enough sleep because our body's keep waking us up so that we can get into a better sleep position that allows the brain and heart to get the optimum amount of oxygen needed to do our recuperative functions while we sleep. That was the reason why I had no energy, lots of fatigue, and constant body aches. No energy and constant pain means you can't loss the wt. which is the cause of most of our problems. My suggestion is that if the city or county you live in has a local free clinic, you try and be seen by a doctor or nurse there and tell them what my recommendations were. My remedy was a small machine called CPAP with a mask that I wear when I go to bed. I am waking up more rested and able to try an get the exercise to loss this wt, which would resolve the pain as well. Write back and let me know what happens.
