Is anyone besides Mokibear and I suffering with shoulder pain?
It is absolutely miserable, my right shoulder joint hurts more than the left.
In the morning, when I am first waking, if I forget and reach to stretch, the pain is unbearable!
It runs down my arm, all the way to my wrists and fingers. Making it very hard to type.
My Neuro ordered the PET Scan; it showed a large amount of demineralization, so then he ordered the Radio-nucleotide Bone Scan; saw him last week, and it was unremarkable; no foci of abnormal activity throughout the bony structures. Bony skeleton appears intact and unremarkable. background soft tissue, renal, and urinary bladder activity is normal as well.
I know that osteoporosis causes demineralization, and I do ave it in my hips, and left forearm, but it does not cause pain. At least they say it doesn't until you have a fracture.
I am beginning to wonder if SLE is developing. My ANA is always elevated with a homogeneous pattern.
My right shoulder is always painful and left arm down to fingers often painful - my neuro told me that he was sure that a lesion I have on my spinal cord is the cause of the left arm pain - no explanation given for the right shoulder, and that is the more consistent pain. Lately my left hand has really been hurting quite a bit - I am dx'd with RRMS and on copaxone just one month so far. I also have extreme hip/back pain during my menses - as if my bones don't fit right - my gyn explained it as beign caused by prostaglandins, but I am not sure what that means and wonder if somehow MS causes those to be overactive or something.
In summary - should pain yes!! and I feel for you -
