I had all info typed out, but it exceeded characters. I thought detailed info would be helpful. Will explain more when someone answers, if needed. About my husband: 61 yr. active male. ER 2/2/14 for chest tightness/severe shoulder pain. Found 2.5cm mass on thyroid (still functioning fine), many spots in lower lobes of lungs that did not show on x-ray, was on CT scan. Treating as pneumonia. Pain is worse and spreading now from shoulders to swollen pockets over metacarpals on hands, groin pain like a pulled muscle, and foot pain over talar dome without swelling, just pain. No injuries or known cause for all pain. It's severe debilitating pain in shoulders and groin. No chest pain now. Had kidney pain, sciatic nerve, and hip pain with 2 episodes of tight chest the past 5 months that I feel is related. Hospital thinks shoulder and groin pain is separate. I don't believe that. My concern was pancoast tumor, but doc said spots r n lower lobes ...& supposedly a lot of them. (size not known to us) History of enlarged prostate, high BP controlled w/meds, High cholesterol-controlled w/meds. Heart checked out fine at hospital. He is active and never been in hospital before or needed pain meds. He is in severe pain and needs them now. Cannot see pulmonologist for 2 weeks. Need opinion on what to think could cause all of this. Hospital and PCP didn't want to believe it was related. I don't buy that. PLEASE, someone give me your opinion on what you THINK it could possibly be, so I can mention it to Doctor for him to check out. I'm scared. He never lets anything get him down ...until now. He's miserable at night when everything is so much worse. THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE. I'm getting desperate to help him.
