    Re: Update On My Situation - Just Had EMG

    Hey everyone,

    Just another update. My muscle biopsy is still scheduled for about a week and a half away. I'm still having muscle, ligament, and nerve pain in my legs and sometimes in my hands. Unfortunately, there hasn't been much improvement in my situation - leading me to believe there is something actually wrong with me and it is not just anxiety / muscle tension. I'm honestly not positive the muscle biopsy will show anything, which also makes me depressed since the Rheumatologist basically said he isn't sure what else to do after this test. But, I feel like there is a lot of other stuff to do - we could check my thyroid, we could check for Lymes Disease, we could check for MS. So, I feel frustrated that if this biopsy doesn't show anything I'll basically have to go to another doctor to keep pursuing this because I don't want to live in this pain forever.

    Has anyone ever experienced anything like this and had it actually go away? It's been 2.5 months now of dealing with constant muscle pain and tightness in my legs.

    I know someone who experienced this, YOU - a few years ago. You had this exactly, and it went away as evidenced in your threads.

    That was not anywhere near as severe as this. These symptoms are different and more severely painful. In addition they have lasted multiple months. Ibuprofen does not help the pain at all.

    My legs are in near constant pain and have twitching often. I donít know whatís going on. Itís not anything imagined and too severe to be ďanxietyĒ. I seriously hope I survive this whatever it is but Iím doubtful that I will.

    If the pain is so "severe" and intolerable, get your GP to prescribe Oxycontin or MST

    NEXT!

    Has anyone suffered continual pain in the body for more than a couple of months? Yep, billions of people. Got many it's just part of getting old.

    Muscular tension can afect you for years. Bad backs can affect you for years. It's not like you are getting any treatment, mental or physical, and are too busy searching out your diagnosis to try anything practical which might help. So, if you sit with any condition doing nothing about it why would you expect magic to solve it? Of course you will say this is because you need to get your MS, ALS, tumour or cancer diagnosis first but the reality is most people would be looking for ways to ease their symptoms and trying new things out rather than chasing doctors who can't find anything.

    I know I'm wasting my breath here, but Darkside, you need to find something that fascinates you more than your own (imagined) impending doom.

    So you're aching - so what? I ache all the time and I bet a lot of others here do too. It's an annoyance, but the vast majority of the time it's not even in my top 10 things to think about.

    I went to a place near here where you can simply pay for any lab tests you need done without needing to go to a Doctor, etc. They do things like STD screening but also any random tests like CBC, Thyroid, etc. I paid to have my TSH thyroid hormone screened as well as Lyme Disease testing. I should have the results from these tests in a few days. I just wanted to rule these two things out myself so I can cross two more things off the list of possibilities.

    If both of these come back negative I guess I will have no choice but to go forward with the muscle biopsy the doctor recommended even though it makes me nervous and I would honestly rather be screened for MS first since it's not anything invasive.

    Why not try treating the anxiety - that could be a miracle cure.
