Sounds like you might have early symptoms of arthritis**** you may need a course of anti-inflammatories. Could I suggest that if your doctor is refusing to listen then you find one who will :)
****do you have high blood pressure? If you do it could be that. But like****said it could be arthritis as well. If your doctor does not want to listen the it is time to find someone who will.

Sounds like you need a new doctor...

I have been been getting really low blood sugar (around the 50s) ever since I came back to college a week and a half ago. I'm usually in class when it starts to happen or really far away from my dorm. Also I eat a healthy well balanced breakfast and lunch. The only thing is that I have to walk a lot since it is a really big campus. It is really scaring me. Does anyone have any opinions on what can help me?
