Thank you all for your feedback. I really don't know what I'd do without this site to go to.

What a releif that there are no infections or blood clots, and that it may just be a muscle issue. So sorry you are going thru this, it's tough enough to deal with the issues that come with this disease but to have extra worries on top is terrible.
Thinking of you and wishing you a pain free recovery.

You got to the ER before I got the post on your thread about your port... I am really slow!
I am so relieved that your problem wasn't a blood clot, too.... whew!!!
Ihope this rights itself soon for you... you've had a rough go of it!
Keeping you in my thoughts.

I'm sorry to hear you had such a hard time, goodness gracious!! I really hope it was just the pain from the IVIG from last week because that will mean it will get better soon! Hope you get some much needed rest in the meantime!

I am glad everything is OK. We are not in a position to take any risks. Rather be safe then sorry. If I remember correctly, you were planning to go through stem cell transplant. Sorry, I have been inactive for some time. Just be strong and take a day at time, better days will be there soon.

I have learned to never under estimate muscle pain. I had pain that started in my shoulder blade and radiated over the top of my shoulder and into my pectoral muscle. It hurt to take a deep breath, it hurt to even lean forward.
Ya know what "cured" me - seeing my general practitioner and getting a referral for physical therapy! After 3+ weeks of agony (tension headaches with it) I had had enough, and the day after seeing my doctor the pain had subsided greatly and before I could make a PT appt, it was nearly gone. But I did suffer with it for nearly 6 weeks before it was completely gone.
Just letting you know my pain story to let you know that I can sympathize and if it is muscular, it could take awhile to go away completely.
So glad you have some pain management now! Hope your days are easier from here on out.
Hang in there,
