When they did all the testing that I had so many lesions on my chest and my skull that they couldn’t count them. I never remember to ask if the lesions heal
When I was diagnosed in 2018, my Oncologist told me that I had MM since 2012. I had a pretty serious fall a year before ( 2011 ); related?? 🤔
My husband is on 10 mg of Revlimid since last fall. So far he is doing good. Tired & his feet & legs hurt but I think that is more from the chemo last year.
Hi...does anyone else struggle with the following symptoms? Neck and low back pain, itchy skin, blisters on fingertips (unhealed after 11 mos), muscle spasms, restless leg, difficulty sleeping, neuropathy, brain fog, tmj, and migraines? Suggestions to help me? Please!!
I did not mention Nutritional yeast which helps with neuropathy.
I began feeling peripheral neuropathy shortly after my last chemotherapy session several months ago and it has only gotten worse. One of my life's passion has been playing the guitar and that is no longer possible. It saddens me and I was told that this condition may never go away. I've tried accupuncture, electric treatment, massage, qigong, yoga, cranberry juice and tart cherry juice. Any more suggestions?
Thanks for the answer Paula. I'll look into the nutritional yeast. I sure as heck don't plan on being on drugs the rest of my life. 😀
I use a C-Pap machine and clean it everyday but worry about lung infections. I have a low white blood cell count. Any recommendations?
Neither my husband or I have a c-pap machine, so I don't know much about them,but I have been seeing ads on the tv for a new kind of machine that is not so restricting, or intense.
After discussing the X-rays with my dentist, he explained that the medications make our mouths stay dry and sets us up for developing cavities because the saliva that usually helps wash the bacteria away is not there. I wish someone had mentioned this so I could try to prevent what has happened.
My mouth was terribly dry the first year I was diagnosed. It was really miserable. I was drinking water constantly. I think the high dose steriods had something to do with it? It's better now.
Can't say after transplant but it's a disaster for Peripheral Neuropathy. It comes on soon after starting it and it doesn't go away when you stop the Velcade.
