Default Re: Pain all over

In these examples like lying down, or having a child sit on your lap, a healthy person moves her core around without thinking to adjust to pressure, in ways that you sometimes can't. And often your joints or bony spots are not adequately cushioned or supported, and so your torso tries to compensate, which leads to back pain, as well as the actual pressure on the areas themselves. So it's not just an overlay in bed, necessarily, but something specific under/behind shoulders, elbows and feet, especially.

As for touching your hands, etc., they've probably lost muscle mass and perhaps a fat pad. You can buy or make hand protectors made of various materials kind of like a bicycle glove or covering the whole hand.
