Well good question, I wish a doctor could answer this :) LOL

Sorry being a little sarcastic! I've been told as far as the joint pain, it is because of over active neurotransmitters and that's why medications like Neurontin tend to work on the pain.

I have back pain because of muscle spasms, in fact I have muscle spasms in most areas of my body not just my back. I don't know the exact mechanism of this. I would imagine it's a combination of dehydration, low potassium and who knows what else.

Hi Casey,

I wished I knew why the pain was there. I have had the normal nerve test but it doens't show much. I have the pain in my knees, behind my knees and down the lower part of my legs. I take nuerotonin three times a day and it really helps.

Hi Everyone,

I just read this post and learned something new! I was not aware that pain is associated with POTS. I have (among other things) a deep aching pain in my joints and muscles that has been attributed to Fibromyalgia. Is is possible that it is autonomic in nature???

Briarrose,

My back spasms have almost completely disappeared (actually, they only show up on occasion now, and are short-lived). It started to improve after beginning hefty B vitamins and magnesium, and now I rarely have to think about it, much less deal with it.
