HI, Thanks for your question. My name isXXXXX and I am here to help you today with your question. I will be happy to assist you with your follow up questions also. I need few details. Do you feel any pain on pressing those areas? Are you sure that they are in muscles and not in bones? Any test done like MRI or CT scan? Have you seen a specialist? Regards
No pain or pressure, does not feel like it is in the bones, but hard to tell. The last MRI I had was mostly for lower spine issues, which the epidural injections have been administered for. These aches and pains doe subside some with movement, so I'm pretty sure they are muscle related.
Dr. Hasan: Thanks for your advice, not sure I have the complete answer yet to this ongoing pain. The Vicodin tabs I'm on seem to help lessen the pain but do cause other complications. I have now been referred to a rheumatiod specialist, whom I will see yet today (2-8). The epidural injections I have had for my lower spine issues have basically been ruled out as being the cause of this, but the timing seems to say that there may be a relationship. But, I guess I have to trust my doctors on this one, as I wish this pain were no longer with me first thing in the new day.
