    Im 27 years old and wake up in intolerable body pains at times. It feels like Im not able to move at times. Im just tired of hurting. I thought it was because of my drinking but i quit drinking 2 years and smoking 5 years ago. Is anybody going throught the same thing or know anyone that is? I believe depression is setting in.

    Good for you, quitting both smoking and drinking!!!! Congratulations!!!

    They are difficult addiction to stop. Have you seen your doctor? Get his opinion, but be very honest with him. Include your concerns that you may suffer from depression. He should do a proper examination, and perhaps draw some blood for testing. You are very young, but waking up in pain is abnormal at any age. Let us know what you decide to do.

    Take care, Annette

    I'm so sorry to hear of your pain and I feel your pain. I too wake to pain every day. Your way to young to have to go through this. I wish I could give you more words of encouragement .i have been in extreme pain for ten years it gets so old. No where or no body to turn to. It's so hard but your not alone and there are allot of people on here that doesn't take your pain away I know but they are here for you. If I had an answer I'd sure give it to everybody.

    Why don't you see an MD and get a diagnosis as to why you hurt so much.

    Once diagnosed, whatever your problem may be, there is a far-better chance of feeling better if you get medical treatment.

    It would seem unlikely that quitting smoking and drinking would cause you to have intolerable pain at times.
