Pain Management

Managing Bone Pain

01/30/2008

Question:

For the past year I have had severe bone pain. It`s not muscle pain or joint pain, but bone pain. I have fevers that last 3 or 4 days in a row, go away and come back. They usually never exceed 102.0. My left side hurts more than my right and it affects my hip, knee and shoulder one at time on a rotation. I have nausea and vomiting as well. My WBC has been between 17,000-26,000 for the past year as it fluctuates. I have seen 2 rhuematologists and they have ruled out SLE & Arthritis. My neurologist diagnosed me with essential tremors and demyelinating neuropathy. My private care physician ordered a CT scan last week and my lymph nodes in my neck are enlarged. I have no concrete answers and it`s frustrating. I am in debilitating pain daily. It is not Fibromyalgia because I take several medications for that and it has not helped at all. I have had 1 bout of pleurisy lately and I have severe pain at the base of the neck, the sternum and the diaphram. I am 24 and I do have a history of optic nerve atrophy, peritonitis, pericarditis, heart defect, cataracts and I had my gallbladder out in 2002. I have no answers and I am at a loss. Any information provided would be helpful. My mom found something on Adult-Onset Still`s Disease! Could it be this? Is lymphoma an option?
