What Causes Severe Muscle Tightness And Pain In The Legs And Shoulders?
Suggestions and testing needed
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your message.
I think I can help you.
First, I suggest testing a test called CPK. Of course, if it's already done just let me know the report.
I also suggest uploading all your reports so I can know exactly what was done and what are the hidden information contained in these reports.
I need some information about the journey. What was the duration. What were the food and drink source. Has there been any progress on the pain. where did the pain start and how did it progress. any weakness associated?
let me know the above information.
I suggest continuing steroids now with calcium and Pantoprazole tablets.
Best of luck. Dr Mittal
FYI. My CBC,CMP,ANA,SED rate,Rheumatoid factor,PSA and urine culture are all within normal range
I have read your response.
I think that you have a myopathy, possibly infective in origin.
As before, i suggest testing the CPK and LDH.
First is a test for detection of myopathy and LDH will suggest the possible infective cause.
Please let me know the results.
In view of the symptoms of the pain in leg that increase on lying down with radiating down the limb, I would also suggest testing an MRI LS spine with whole spine screen.
Let me know the results.
Pantoprazole is a antacid and is usually easily available.
It is needed with prednisolone.
So you need not take it while you are off the medicine.
Physiotherapy may also be initiated, but it would be better to wait for the reports.
You may discuss the above tests with your treating doctor.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible.
Please feel free to contact us for more information/clarification as required.
Best of luck, Dr Mittal
Meet a neurologist urgently
Thanks for your response.
I stand by my prior advice.
I also think you should meet up with a neurologist as soon as possible.
Sometimes the diuresis or increased urine may occur post withdrawalof the steroids.
But it will be better to meet a neurologist and rule out muscle disease as soon as possible.
Best of luck. Dr Mittal.
