Hello all, just wanted to tell you I had a blood test yesterday for Polymyalga, came back positive. It is a form of arthritis, starts in the shoulder and continues to other shoulder and down to other parts of the body. It can be very painful, keeps me up at night. Asked my doc what causes this and he said, they don't know, just age and bad luck ! Well, that covers it for me, lol. Doc wants for me to start on steroids for two weeks to see if that helps, if it doesn't then could be something else. Waiting for the chromagranin test to come in so I'll know where I stand with the carcinoid cancer in lung. Seems we are always waiting for something, doesn't it? Being able to talk about things here is a big help. Thank you all for being here for me and all who are living with cancer .
