Don't know what to think and feeling uncertain at this point
3 months. Let’s begin. July 26 full body neuropathy out of no where. July 27, ankles ache & shines. Did have UTI. July 27 flank pain. ER visit July 28. Expressed to ER neuropathy/ankle pain. Doctor ran labs. All good. Doctor had no answer. Sent home. August. Getting worse.Neuropathy intense/bone pain. See my doctor. Express my fears. Questioned if I have MM. Doctor tells me no, wants me on anxiety meds. Tells me to my face I do not have MM. Pretty bold w/o running specific tests for it. Continuous pain. No sleep. Scared. Dr. Googling a lot. Learning about MM/Auto immune diseases. Aug 24 severe tingling/ache. Go to ER again. . Tell them all symptoms.They run many blood work tests/Urine test. They come in room & tell me all blood work is good. Say I have neuropathy and RX Gabapentin. Getting depressed. Convinced I have MM. Feel my Doctor is not taking this seriously. Sept. No improvement but feeling worse. I am elated if I get a few hours w/no pain. Sept.11 go to clinic for a BMP. Looked OK, but freaked with a lower Anion Gap at 6. Aug. 24 it was 11. I write my Doctor a my chart message totally scared. She said she was not concerned, Anion Gaps fluctuate. Each day I feel is a mental game. Sept. 30. Severe tingling/ache in both legs, at this time I had lower back pain & had adjustments. Went back to ER. Had an Xray of lower lumbar/pelvis. They were not going to do BW but I I asked(Very nicely) & Doctor ordered a Comprehensive Metabolic Panel and CBC. Sat in waiting room. Called into a room & the Doctor said Xray fine. Blood work fine, RX’s a steroid pack I did pick up but did not use. My Anion was at 7, however, a slight lowered Red Blood Cell, was 4.1 in August, and lowered to 3.8 Sept. 30 at ER. 3.8 is the lowest of normal range. My Creatinine was good. Calcium good. Albumin lowered slightly to 3.8. White Blood Cell normal. Protein lowered from 7.2 to 6.6. Chloride above normal at 109. 107 is the high normal range. ~ * At my doctor appt. I had my doctor examine my shoulder, have had problems w/it for several years . She is a DO btw. She said I have frozen shoulder. Set up PT. With this left shoulder the pain is different and intense. Had an Xray on 10/9. They say no fracture, anything strange. They did say question small faint calcification or ossification adjacent to the humeral head near the greater tuberosity. ~ I wrote a my chart message to my doctor and a different doctor wrote to me and said this is normal for a person my age (63) and not concerned. What concerns me is my right shoulder is feeling slightly the same as my left. As of current my center upper back does ache. Bottom line, I feel I am showing symptom of MM & my doctor & the hospital keep telling me I’m good. Maybe it will take mt crawling on my hands and knees to the hospital for them to take this seriously? At his time, no test was done to check for M protein.Comments are welcome. Thank you.
