Re: Hormone levels

Hi Desi-2

Thanks so much for coming back to me. Yeah it's much worse in bed and I find myself wakening during the night because of it. I know the cut the nerves to get the lymph nodes out so maybe it is that. My appointments tomorrow. I hope you get the answers your looking for - thanks ever so much x

Re: Hormone levels

Hi it doesn't sound like my rib symptoms, I had a popping sensation followed by sharp stabbing pains, which i thought were muscular so didn't follow up with GP, there was also swelling in the effected area which was painful to touch. I had been having acupuncture long term and I'm not sure if this could have been masking some of the pain however I had a chest infection which caused the rib pain to become unbearable but it then settled down again! When the area was particularly sensitive it was difficult to move around in bed, but the wrist and arm pain don't sound familiar. I do feel that nerve pain is a big problem from the meds we take ect and the pain from this can be extensive hopefully that's what this is. Good luck xx

Re: Hormone levels

Hi Desi-2 I'm afraid I can't help you with your question, but wondered if you could help me, I've been experiencing aching ribs, fore-arm wrist etc and am waiting for a hospital appoint to discuss it. Was diagnosed with bc in Jan, have had surgery, chemo and radio. Had bone scan back in Jan it was clear, but this aching which has started recently, isn't relieved with pain killers, is worse at night and effecting my mobility. I just wondered if you experienced symptoms and if they were similar? I hope someone can answer you soon - the unknown/ waiting is the worst. Good luck x
