ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have unexplained severe bone pain, I am very stiff when I get up the the morning when I get done working for the day my bones start hurting, it almost feels like they are throbbing. It starts in my upper back and works its way down to the heels of my feet. I sleep with my feet hanging off of the bed so they are not toughing anything because it is too painful to have them rest on anything. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Polyarthalgia in 2015. In 2016 I started receiving injections on my foot because I couldn't put pressure on it unless I was in an Orthopedic boot. I have done my research and implemented diet changes to help feed my body what it needed based on the research I did. I have been able to manage my pain and inflammation without prescription medications since Winter of 2017 until recently. Almost 6 moths ago I started having the severe bone pain specifically on my left side when it first began, the pain travels up and down my thigh. It then spreads throughout my lower extremity. Approximately about 4 months ago I was running my fingers through my hair as I do quite often and I noticed a dent in the center back of my head. I thought it was unusual and have been monitoring the dent and it had just about tripled in size. I also have noticed that I almost can't clean my ear (also in the left side) with a Q-tip because there is so much swelling. In the last 2 months my pain has gotten so bad I am averaging about 2 solid hours of sleep a night. I am planning on an appointment with my specialists in the near future. I would have loved to have my appointment about 6 weeks ago when the pain began to steadily increase; however, I was waiting to find out if I had cancer or not since my numbers were elevated slightly and this would have been an re-occurrence. We have since completed almost all of the testing for that and it has all been in range. Praise God! Now that I am able to move past that hurdle I need to get to the bottom of this pain! I am much to young to feel this damn old! I should add that my previous cancer was found and removed during a routine procedure and I never have had to do treatment of any kind. We monitor the numbers every year. I have not had to use any medicine in the last almost two years and I really do not want to repeat history if it can be avoided.
