I was diagnosed about a year ago and have received great support from this site so, thank you! I wonder though if someone can help again? I have been having what I can only describe a short and very localised pain in bones and muscles. The pain feels like a tightening of muscles or someone prodding me with a blunt instrument. Recently I have developed a more acute pain in the muscles of my upper left arm. I know that many of us are constantly minesweeping our bodies for "abnormalities" and I am generally cool about these things but am actually a little anxious. I kind of do t want to go to the doctors because I do t want to go on the whole 'tests' roundabout - also, last time I did that u had to sit in a room and be told I have cancer. That was scary and maybe I'm scared that might happen again. Any thoughts that might help would be useful.
