Day 83 - joint pain

Quick diary update since I’m typing on my phone and should be sleep. This joint pain is SOMETHING ELSE. My back hurts so bad getting out of bed. It’s so sore when I bend down to pick something up or over the sink to wash my hands or face. My elbows and shoulders get sore and hurt from just leaning on them. I am trying to get my exercise in, like running, but my hip flexors will be sore for the whole next two days. I’m going to try stretching but even that hurts more than feels good. I feel stiff. I don’t want this to affect me in my personal and intimate life. My bf has perfect skin so he doesn’t understand my struggles nor the drug nor the side effects. I can only talk to my online friend gabi and that helps me a lot, knowing I’m not suffering alone. It’s hard to get out of bed more often. The fatigue is also setting in.  I could get a full 10 hours of sleep and still be sleepy or get sleepy in the middle of the day and need a nap but I can’t, with the job I have. 

Many suggestions on how to combat joint pain and fatigue caused by accutane?  I don’t want to have to take painkillers every day. I’ve had two headaches, too,  that could or could not be related.
