For The Men, Do Anyone Suffer From Severe Groin Pain From All The Way In His Back To Front?
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone experienced severe groin pain. Without going into to much detail, my husband has severe pain radiating from his back all the way to his groin. No one can tell us what’s causing it. He’s on all this darn pain medication that’s not doing him any good. He take 200 mg of slow release Tramadol, 15mg morphine, Flexerill at bed time to be able to sleep at all. I’m tired of seeing him in all this pain. His myeloma is in check. So if it’s not tge myeloma they just keep sending him from one… read more

I've had some groin pain recently (last few months anyway). It started as what I thought was jock itch and a dermatological issue. It progressed to more of an internal issue and was determined to be a… read more

Anyone Having Cramps In Their Feet ?
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have very bad neuropathy due to Induction. Treatment like dexamethasone did really bad things to my muscles. During the day and as I awake in the morning, the underside and even the inside edge of my feet will have very bad cramps. I'll flex my feet to relieve it some. I've just started taking magnesium oxide (250mg daily). I'm also stretching them at the gym but it still has a long way to go.

Any recommendations ?

Thanks

I can tell you I felt much more pain before I started treatment than I do now 4 yrs later! The treatments definitely helped and I am so thankful!

Pain Management.
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

Like so many with MM, pain is a major symptom. My husband is on Tramadol (an opiod) and Tylenol. Tylenol causes his kidney function numbers to rise, so he's hesitant to use this. And of course as we all know, opiods can and usually are addictive. CBD has been suggested, but he is also on blood pressure medication and has been told not to use CBD. So none of these choices is good. My question is: What are others doing for pain management? Also, has anyone had accupuncture, and if so, did… read more
