I'll start off with bullets of my irritations and then ask a question. -Sore upper, middle and then lower back about 1 1/2 months ago. It went away after about a 4-5 days. -Traps got sore for a couple of days after that. -Stomach muscles got sore, and lots of cramping and gas. -Both arms and hands (pinky fingers) tingled off and on for a few days. Gone now too. -Little tender spots on my body, chest, arms, stomach and inner thigh off and on for the entire time and I still have them on my inner thigh. These spots kind burn and are tender to the touch.
I went to my Dr and told her and she said I probably bumped myself, but I'm pretty sure I'd remember doing that kind of damage to myself. She did some blood work and told me if anything out of the ordinary comes up she would call me and if not, she would send me a letter with the results. I have gotten neither at this point(after about 5 days).....so I assume no serious showed up.
I have never been a worry wart kind of person but this is all new to me, I have always been pretty healthy and my body is in normal shape (6 ft 208lbs) 41 years old.
I dont want to self diagnose, but why does the inner thigh spots continue? If I get up and walk, they are fine, but after sitting for a short while, they start buring\acheing. Could it be a lymp node(s)?
Thanks Agrapina! At least I'm not crazy then....LOL I have an appointment scheduled for this Thursday and I am going to request an MRI to rule out anyting else, but I'm not holding my breath because you know as soon as I got an appt scheduled the irritations have backed off some. I can still feel them, but not as much as they have been over the past few weeks. It seems the ones in the inner thigh dont move around like the ones in the other parts of my body did. Maybe my spell is coming to an end, who knows. I'll see what the Dr and the MRI show later this week. Thanks again for your input.View Thread
Thanks for your response Nancy. Sorry i was so focused on noting my symptoms that I forgot to identify myself as a male....LOL. I got my blood work results this morning and other than my cholesteral I'm good. BC, Liver, Kidney...etc came back normal, so I just made an appointment for this Thurdsay to talk to my Dr again to push the issue of my tender spots on my legs. They have not had that "burning" sensation for a couple of days now, but I know it can come back at any moment. I wouldnt be so concerned if it wasnt someting that's been going on for a while now.
Hi, sorry I'm just now getting back to your responses I was busy all weekend. I was trying to describe all of my symptoms and totally forgot to identify my gender, I am Male....sorry about that part.
The burning\stinging part seems to have subsided over the past couple of days but the soreness\achey feeling still there. I have read all about Fibro and just like anyting else, I have some of the symptons but not all which could lead me in another direction. I think I will make another appointment with my Dr and get a refferal to someone else if she doesnt help or at least work with me on this one. I'm keeping a lot of this to myself so that I dont scare my wife or kids because chances are that this is totally nothing, but I don want them to worry for no good reason.
