Hello. In 2008 i was going through testing and they noticed sclerotic lesions on my spine and pelvis. They did testing and sent me to a lupus doctor but nothing so it was let go. Just a few months ago i had a kidney infection and they did a ct scan and they saw the lesions so compared it to one from 2008 and they grew in size and number. All the blood work came back fine. They did a CBC-NO DIFF, PTH-INT, CMP-COMPREHENSIVE METABOLIC PANEL, VITAMIN D, AND VITAMIN D. Also did a bone scan which came back normal. She dont know what it is. I am constantly tired. I wake up unrested. I have very bad back pain mostly in my lower back but i have stabbing pains throughout my whole back at times. I get migranes (migraines) all the time. Also i have memory problem pretty bad at times. I couldnt say how long this has been going on but it has been a very long time. What should i do? What could it be? What other tests should be done?
Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Sclerotic areas in bone represent excessive fibrosis and calcification and may occur secondary to ischaemia. If all other tests have been normal the sclerotic lesions may be primary. Other symptoms may have occurred due to unrelated causes. I would suggest considering an evaluation by an internist for suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.
