Its a disaster this year. I lost wight and got problems. So I have pain in the joints. Feel me mentally not so good and can not have active then participate in life. Except drawing is not much going on with me. Well, one possibility would be as strength training, but I have to be careful as this could hurt crave...
Well, you might have any suggestions for me that could make me more fit again? Thanks for your answers in advance.

Maybe I can help people who have the opposite problem?

You do weight training and you feel too thin? If you exercise you've got to stop doing cardio like running. Strength training increases the joints and bones. Take a lot of calcium. You've got to eat a lot of carbohydrates too, if you want to gain some weight and not feel so thin! So if you want to bulk up, lift weights and eat a gram of protein for every pound of your body, you should look into how many calories you need to eat per day to maintain your weight then add 500 extra calories to that. Good luck!

If you've lost a lot of weight, know that you aren't eating properly and are suffering physical pain you really need to see a doctor. It's dangerous to start any kind of exercise regime without consultation if you're already having medical problems. Please go and see your GP to ask for advice, or even a referral to a dietician to help you reach and maintain and healthy weight.

I have the same problem.

Drink lots of water and take joint supplements (msm/glucosamine/etc)to help keep them functioning properly.

Keep protein rich snacks around and try to get in the habit of eating a handful whenever you walk past. Something like nuts.

You do need to be mobile to help your joints. Try walking first. Short walks, then longer, make sure to take long strides and move your back and arms. I have joint and back problems and the best therapy I have found is long, long walks. I've been known to do 30 miles a day (with my kid, no less) at just a gentle walk.

You'll know when you're ready to do more.

If you wanna gain weight I'd say the best thing would be eating more carbohydrates. And I don't mean go eat all kind of fast food you can find, I mean a special diet with "good" carbohydrates so your body gets everything it needs and you won't get health problems from eating.
Probably the best idea would be consulting a doctor or nutritionist.

I used to be very skinny too, like 20 kgs-30kgs when I was teen (when I was toddler... I kinda freak out my parents with my 10-15 kgs weight). It was caused by heart disease - I got tired easily even for gulping food and drink. I got treatment immediately so it was cured when I was 17 (but not really cured because the doctor said my heart still not as strong as normal people).

My advice is go seek specialist help. They can do better diagnose than people in art forum (:
If you have pain at joints, do some little exercise (: eat healthy food . I eat everything - veggies, meat (can't eat much because it's bad to my condition >_<), fruits, milk, etc. I'm 45kg now with my 155 cms tall
Good luck

There are other causes for loose ligaments and joint pain besides just being thin. I suggest getting a physical.

Yes. If they suspect you may have cancer, they order a biopsy. By the time the biopsy is approved and the appointment set, two months have gone by. An eternity in cancer staging.

Agree on best seeing a medical specialist as an option. Also, start doing mild exercises like taking walks on sandy beach or soft lawn. If you can swim, it's a better exercise for your joints. If you're not vegetarian, I recommend eating some not-completely-lean meat, like pig feet or stuff with tendons and skin, every week. If you're not interested by cuisine or taste, tell yourself you're doing something good for health instead.

Most of the problems I have. With the biceps yearn in the right shoulder I had three quarters of a year before I got at work one distortion. Although it is now much better, but I'm averse to raise difficult things because I'm afraid that an acute pain could erupt again.

Ugh, that sounds sickening. I know it's a good way to gain weight, I don't know how people consume large amounts of dairy. If I have more dairy than what's in two cups of coffee, I end up feeling sick, let alone 4 litres! :vomit: ... damnit, I've forgotten the emote :ohnoes:

Over the course of a day 4 liters isn't really a lot! Plus they have lots of calorie and milk is pretty cheap. I'd never gain weight without it. :noes:

Water has next to no nutritional value whereas milk has lots of healthy calorie! It's way cheaper here; at 0.60€. Seriously, in what kind of country is milk more expensive than gas?!

Like you, I'm also quite thin and had problems in joints, specially in the knees. But the doctor recommended me to do excercise to strenghten the legs and gain some muscle and the pain went away.
In any case, if you're eating a normal ammount of food for someone of your age and sex, and still you're abnormally thin, maybe you should get a blood analysis. You may have thyroid problems. That, or some sort of intestine parasites, maybe.

I did once knee bend. I'll never do it again. but movement is good. With the thyroid I have no problem because I was examined before. the main reason is too little food. But good to know that problems arise yearn, if you have too little muscle mass. And in the joints of course.

If you're not eating enough healthy food, then you should do so. If you are eating enough healthy food and you're still having fatigue and joint problems, then you need to see a doctor.
