How old were you all when you started getting body aches from house cleaning? I am 44 years old and feel like I am too young to have this much aching just from cleaning house. I first noticed this problem when I was in my late thirties, but now if I clean house, I hurt so badly I cannot even sleep. Is this amount of pain normal for a 44 year old? I still swum, but I cannot go hard and fast anymore, so I do slow swimming and low intensity water aerobics. Those things don't bother me.
