learing to suffer.

raelynn - March 5

Hi, Im not sure what i have, other than a lot of pain a lot of the time. I am a thyroid cancer survivor (total thyroidectomy w/daily replacement meds). i suffer from constant headaches & migraines, knee and back pain(diagnosed w/ degenerative disk disease & narrowing of the spine), and sensitive muscles. what i mean by sensitive muscles is tender to the touch, sore like i have been doing serious work out, I also have lots of bruising all over my body ( i dont remember bumping into or hitting myself on any thing either).

I have gone to my endo & my Gen/Dr. for my thyroid, headaches,migrains & all over body aches. I have had a Lypoma (partial) removed from behind my left ear, they werent able to remove it all due to the fact that it is entwind in the nerve's. so in the last two+ years since then it has grown back, and i know that it does cause some of my head pain.

I am curently taking : proxicam 20mg, orphenadrine 100mg, cymbalta 60mg, 800mg motrin twice a day, levoxyl 200mcg, multi-vitamins & B-complex, & replenix (joint repair formula)

the meds have dulled some of the pains, but on most days, i ache all over and suffer.

i just wish i could learn something different.

Have you seen a rhuemotologist to determine if some of your symptoms may be fibromyalgia? Wishing you better days ahead.

no, not really sure what to do next. my endo ran blood work to test for arthritis and exrayed my back, pelvic/hips, knees & hands. she said i didnt show any arthritis based off of the blood work and exrays, but she also said that it doesnt always show in those. I have an appointment with her on the 21'st of this month. i wasnt sure what all i should ask her to test to rule it in or out.
