its really strange..if you look at me i look pretty fit. im 5'8" 125lbs. i'm a breastfeeding mama and sadly i think that has something to do with my complaint. since giving birth i've noticed that i have daily knee and elbow pain. i always feel stiff. i'm wondering if there is some sort of correlation. anybody else experience this?

I'm assuming your lifting your child a lot and carrying your baby around. These pains are normal to having a baby and having to hold them all of the time just like having back or hip pains as well.

ugh, what can we say. it isnt enough that we have to carry and birth the children...we also get to comment on the rapid degradation of our bodies. i still say im too young for this.

I wonder if you are in need of some nutrients missing in your diet.

Hello ! Don't worry for that , maybe it is just a sign of some calcium deficiencies since you just newly gave birth. Best thing to do is to drink a lot of milk and eat plenty of sea foods , green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits.
