Recently, as a couple of days ago, i started having aching pains down my right side, hip & legs. I think it sort of started little by little last week but i thought if i take a rest because i was actively busy with work, it would go away. But it seems to be getting worse. I find it painful when i walk outside or go shopping. Sometimes the pain stretches down my right arm from the thumb, in my fingers, behind my back. I walk to work 3 days a week, and i do some gardening whenever, i,m not busy. I don't do much else. I eat reasonably well. I am a little bit over my weight but i loose it quickly. I am in recession from right breast cancer where 5 veins removed from under my right armpit. I am taking medication, having hot flushes, the works. I have not yet gone to the doctors but planning to on Monday. I think it may be muscle fatigue or thought it might be related to some sort of athritis. I have told my oncology doctors about the little pains before but they said it's normal and it will go away, but it's getting worse. Thank you for your responses. It helps when i go to see doc again.View Thread
