What is MFR? Myofascial release? How do you do it? I have fibromyalgia on top of my arthritis on top of Stage IV cancer (bones,joints,organs…).Is the Topricin the same minty cream you can get at the P.T? Thankyou. I just found out from this site my horrible leg pain might be caused also from the cancer causing my spine to collapse.

Thank-you for mentioning a daily pain/depression journal. That's exactly what I need at this stage in my pain.

I don't know what you take statins for, but there is a small print warning that they can cause atrophy in your leg muscles. Statins made my leg muscles so weak I could barley get around in a walker. I was taking it for a cholesterol level of 230 almost 2 years on the medicine at different doses the number didn't budge. My friend suggested a natural combo of Alfalfa tablets, ubiqinol & coconut oil & in one month my number dropped to 180. Two years later it's 160 & holding. I was off my walker within two weeks of stopping Statins. Now I have other causes for leg pain including bone cancer & radiation. They grew crocked when I was young so I'm use to pain. Makes me scream sometimes, keeps me up 99% of time, makes me want to get drunk & die at times. I'm a VERY light drinker~one six pack every 18 months, 4 bottles of wine a year…heavy stuff at Christmas. Anyway, I just found something that REALLY helps~ Rolfing. An old form of deep tissue message, specific exercises & physical therapy. Any exercise that light & easy like Sit n Be Fit on Public Broadcast TV, or Miranda Esmond- Whites' Classical Stretch is the BEST! Hydro therapy to cleanse the lymph glands is very important too. Walking moving be patient if it takes 4-5 times to do something-that's okay. Just persevere & be kind & gentle to your self & others. Oh,stretch your calf's out slow & gentle before you lay down & capsaicin ointment on the joints help.

I feel the same way. I had one session of Rolfing for the 1st time. It helped TREMENDOUSLY. I follow the exercise given & can walk 5 blks some days. Just squats and Sit n be Fit on TV helps a lot.

I’ve been in similar situations. You have the right to as much privacy as you wish within what they are able to give you. That starts with your husband not being present. It use to be men were not expected to be in delivery rooms, nor did they want to. Now it seems unnatural if that is the case. One BIG thing people tend to forget under the stress of hospitalization is we can sign papers stating we don’t want students involved-even if it is a teaching hospital. If for some reason they insist perhaps you can limit it to one or two students with limited participation. Ask questions as to the extent of involvement students & others may have & express your concerns. Your health & blood pressure & rate of healing should be their number one concern. Oh! Sorry, I just realized I’m posting a month late! I’ve been away in hospital. Hope all is well. Take care.

Thank-you for the information. Before I get my hopes up do you know if they will turn me away if I have bone cancer in the same knee?

I use acetaminophen with my ibuprofen. I find flannel sacks of rice/lavender seeds…what ever you like, warmed 2 minutes in the microwave work wonders. For some reason they help me better than a heating pad or hot water bottle.

Oct 27, 2017 · Diagnosed with sarcoma? Let's share in Cancer

Oh one doc said last year I have cancer in the soft tissues & synovial fluids & the like. I also just a few months ago found out the arthritis I have had for 20 + years is osteo. it’s because of this I can’t have surgery. I had 3 bone density tests in the past 2 years. All were high normal & there’s no answer as to how this could be with powdery bones that are about to break. Any suggestions would help. I have no funds to travel.
