So I went to my new Dr. After reading alot of stuff in this group I was feeling like I knew a little more about wgat I was facing
So I go in I tell him about my pain in my back and my severe fatigue. He says I don't think any of this is from your MM. 🤔. Really so I go from very active all my life to old in 3 months.....

Yes definitely get a second opinion because I had a friend with MM who had a tumour on his spine that fractured his vertebrae before he was diagnosed. The Dr. said oh your tall and old it is nothing to worry about but the Dr. Was wrong.

I understand your dilemma Colleen! It sounds like the doctor will be a good one so it should be worth the wait!!! You really need to have one who knows and specializes in MM. I’m pulling for you!!!!!
My heart goes out to you. I hope your new doctor will cover all the bases and get you back on track
I’m pretty up on my numbers also. I just feel a md should offer better advice than your getting older. . I am glad he is sending you for test because you may or may not find a answer. It’s a far to familiar sign when most of us have felt pain like you describe. I definitely think you need to see someone who is a specialist.
