Cramps in my legs wake me up at night. I also wake up many nights short of breath, hot, with my hair and nightgown wet from sweating. I have gone to my doctor who advised I go to yes hospital because could be life threatening, he said most likely another blood clot. I went to Hospital. They did blood tests, cat scan with dye injection, ultra sound, and x rays. I was referred to see the oncologist. I have been dealing with Padgett disease for about three years. The surgeon wants to do bilateral mastectomy and remove my thymus gland. I'm very afraid of surgery. I pray for a miracle every day.
