Get eval: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) can be excellent for this type of pain. They can help with both pain relief and in reducing inflammation. Examples are ibuprofen (like Advil, Nuprin or Motrin), Naproxen sodium (like Aleve, (naproxen) Naprosyn, Anaprox) or Asprin (such as Bayer, Ecotrin, Ascriptin). Avoid NSAID's if pregnant or allergic to them.

Arthritis.: There are many different kinds. Some occur after a significant trauma to a joint, or with gradual wear-and-tear over time, but if you're having pain and swelling in multiple joints on both sides of your body, you may have an autoimmune disease, like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or psoriatic arthritis. Check with your doctor to see if blood tests need to be run for confirmation.

Arthritis: There are many forms of arthritis where the blood tests come back "clear." for example, "seronegative" arthritis has no specific test for it but can be as serious as rheumatoid arthritis. Some people are genetically prone to their joints wearing out called osteoarthritis. Regardless see a rheumatologist if you haven't already for workup, diagnosis and treatment.

I sometimes have acute pain in wrist & ankle joints, doctor suggested its due to B12 deficiency. How can that be?

It is: Plausible your doctor thought the pain was nerve related. Sometimes vitamin deficiencies can cause various types of nerve pain. But, the best person to ask what your doctor was thinking would be the doctor himself.

Often I feel anxious, with a lack of energy and a very slight ache or in my joints (knees, wrists, ankles mainly). I'm not very physically active.

Non specific: As a psychiatrist, of course I want to know more about the anxiety. Anxiety disorders can often have physical symptoms like muscle ache and fatigue, as well as depressive conditions. So can normal stress and strain, especially if a person starts to tip over into burnout. There are also medical conditions that can cause anxiety and physical symptoms. Starting with an primary eval is best.

My 3 yr. Old always cries every night and points to his ankle, wrist, elbow and knee joints. The doc said its growing pain, but I don't believe her.

I would want to: Rule out other causes as the etiology. There is another issue here though....When one doesn't "believe" their doctor......You need to be able to communicate with your doctor. If there is trust issues, you might be best off seeking a second opinoin.

Multiple Joints: Typically with multiple joint involvement we have our patients start with a rheumatologist to check if there is systemic arthritic involvement. Your primary care doc could start the evaluation with 10 days on 4 days off various anti-inflammatory medications to see if they can find one of the 9 categories to work well at controlling your symptoms.
