I don't know what to do. Quick history: past 20 years recurring bronchitis requiring two hospitilizations, past 25 years intermittent lumbar disk problems (every couple of years lands me in bed for a week at a time), 12 years ago lithotrypsy for kidney stones, 12 years ago thyroidectomy for mass on thyroid (benign), 5 years ago lumpectomy/36 rads for breast cancer, 5 years ago parotidectomy for benign parotid gland tumor, 3 years ago hysterectomy for fibroid tumors, 2 years ago gallbladder removal, hiatal hernia/acid reflux past 10 years. Now here is the problem: excessive cramps/pain in left rib cage area to the point that I feel like I'm dying (not being melodramatic). The pains began initially after radiation treatments then subsided somewhat but in recent months have hurt worse than ever. I also am experiencing cramps in my back, jaw, legs, toes, hands, pinky finger, abdomen, & neck under my chin. I have stopped drinking tea & carbonated beverages & drink water, soy milk, gatorade, & occasionally juices. I eat plenty of veggies/fruits & am following weight watchers to lose weight. Pain from cramps occur regardless of posture, time of day, etc. I am sick of hurting!! Had cat scan that revealed nothing. Where do I go from here? Thanks to anybody who can give me any direction from this point.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
