dear miss willams,
do you have any pain in the spine or on flexing your neck. it would be better to get a physical examination and an MRI of whole spine done to be properly evaluated.

I m a 57 year old female. My main illness is asthma/allergies which for the most part are under control. As I sit here, I have aching throbbing pain up and down my right leg, particularly in the thigh and to the right of my knee and down. It s taking over my life. I ve been limping on my right side for over a week now. I ve had restless leg syndrome for several years. There is a difference between that and what I m currently feeling.

I am breast cancer survivor. It has been 16 years since my first diagnosis. Four years after the first mastectomy I had a different kind of breast cancer in the second breast. This time along witb the mastectomy & reconstruction I had to have chemo. Then about a year later what I thought was the fibromyalgia pain in my back got a lot worse. Turns out that along with fibromyalgia the first cancer had spread to several places in the thoraxic, lumbar and later the siatic area of my spine. So, the doctor put me on chemo for a year and a half and two weeks of radiation. About a year later I had 5 cyberknife treatments. Another year later they had me have kifoplasty surgery. ( A couple of vertebrae had collapsed.) About 6 years passed when I was doing pretty well except for skme neuropathy in my legs and feet. Then in 2012 the cancer returned in the siatic area, so again I had a 5 month round of chemo. I am doing well again now except for a lot more neuropathy. My oncologist put me on fentanyl 25mcg patches about 10 or 11 years ago and femara once per day and hydrocodone 7.5 at night and the neurologist put me on Lyrica 300 mg., once per day, Savella 100mg twice per day, and the oncologist also has me taking potassium twice per day. I asked the neurologist to lower the Lyrica because I felt like my balance or the neuropathy had gotten worse when he had me go up from 200 to 300 mgs per day. So he lowered it to 225mgs and suggested that maybe I should consider going off the fentanyl patch. I had told him that I stumble around a lot. I have fallen several different times. I hate being on SO much medicine! But, I m also in a lot of pain!! What do you suggest?

I was diagnosed with breast cancer last month and decided to have a bilateral mastectomy though the cancer was in my right breast. I was born with a deformed left hand but never really diagnosed for anyjthing. After my mastectomy the plastic surgeon told me that I have Polands Syndrome because I didn't have my left pectoral muscle although I have a breast a bit smaller than my right and that also explained my webbed left handfingers. I also have symptoms of horners syndrome on the left side of my face, drooping eye lid aand absence of sweat. Do you think the syndromes are all connected?

My boyfriend's mother was diagnosed with breast cancer a month ago. She just had a mastectomy a few days ago. When she woke up from anesthesia, her heart was racing, she had a severe fever, her blood pressure was sky high, and she didn't remember anyone. What does this mean?

my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago. she had had a standard mammogram which picked it up. 3 years previous she had a clear mammogram. she couldnt feel any lumps herself, but after the mammogram she was called in to say there was something wrong. she was called in for a biopsy. at the biopsy she was told, that she had at least two tumours in same breast and when they pulled the fluid off that she had cancer. they didnt even need to send it off anywhere to tell her this. she then went for a mastectomy,and they removed her breast and lymph nodes. she was told 22 lymph nodes were cancerous (i dont know how many she had, if any, over and above the 22 ) and it was aggressive. she had chemo then radiation followed by a daily pill (eg. armidex but im unsure). i cant establish the full facts but when she does have a check up they don't take any blood test. she had a premliminay bone scan when diagnosed and was told it wasnt in her bones. she doesnt say much about it,but i have noticed that recently she has left the room feeling sick and my son has told me that she has also been clutching her throat. i really dont have a clue what the prognosis is and am obviously worried
