I'm a 24 y/o who's in remission from Papillary Thyroid Cancer.. for almost a year now. (1/13/2009)
For the past two weeks or so, I've been having back pain, mostly in the lower back, shoulders, below the shoulders and such. I've never had back pain before and I didn't lift anything heavy or strain my back. I'm also having leg cramps and muscle twitching, i can feel the twitch in my upper arms and in my legs. At first I thought it was my Calcium being too low but my calcium levels are fine.
Just recently, three days ago, after taking a calcium supplement, an intense burning came in my legs.. this was the first time. I mean I never experienced anything like this before! And the sensation creeped up towards my thighs, and my arms and now its in my backs. It just feels like I'm on fire. I went to the ER last night and they ran blood tests, calcium, magnesium, potassium, electrolytes, etc, everything came back okay. They also checked for Diabetes, which was negative. I also got an xray of my back, normal. He said there was no nerve damage, so i just don't know what's going on! Should I ask for an MRI?? Are these symptoms of fibromyalgia? How can I get tested for fibro?
