I have had constant joint and muscle pain for the last year and half - tested for arthritis, lupus but negative - seems to be getting worsen - mostly in my hands and my hips. Often have the feeling of joints being 'frozen' and cold. Hands feel contractured in the am and take a long time to work out the pain. Diagnosed as fibromyalgia - nothing seems to help - meds, exercise, physio......
also have numbness in my hands and feet, around my face - diagnosed as anxiety and depression
Frequent Abdominal discomfort and cramping - have had surgery to remove polyps in my uterus due to precancerous cells, then my uterus removed for the same reason and now a wide local excision of the vulva for stage 0 carcinoma-in-situ.
Also have issues with bladder control and leakage where I just don't feel the urge to go or where I feel an incredible urge to void but then can't.
Extreme fatigue and weakness. Constant daily headaches.
I also am positive for Malignant Hyperthermia (musle biopsy done when I was in my teens).
Increased liver enzymes in my blood, increased ESR and CRP levels. Live blood cell analysis showed a lot of inflammation and liver overload.
Is it possible that the joint pain / muscle pain is polymyositis and is associated with the neoplasia cells in my female organs? I'd read about antineoplastic polymyositis and am wondering if this is possibly what is going on with me?.......
