New here. Currently experiencing severe bone pain from my elbow to above my wrist. Extreme weakness. had nerve testing on my right hand and mentioned the left arm as it had just started but the resukts were normal. The pain is deep and constant. I am also exhausted and the last week have been going to bed by 7pm. I am a 46 yr old female with a history of NASH, Lymphoma in my thyroid (never spread) 04 so I am 5 years clean now of that. I have type 2 diabetes (on insulin) I am 5'5" and weigh 155 lbs. ALso in early 90s had Sarcoidosis. I am currently on synthroid, ativan, cymbalta,and a cholestral lowering drug. I started taking Chantix last Thurs the 28th so I could finally quit smoking (2 packs a day)
My concern with this bone pain is a type of cancer. Should I call my oncologist?
I have always been hard to diagnose. If you have any suggestions please let me know.
