I found a blood clot (about the size of a large grape) a few weeks ago in my underwear. I dont have hemmeroids and am 10-15 years post-meapausal. I had blood in stool, lab results, (3) no blood in styool. I had MRI and actual cameras and surgery to see up my female system,as well as lab tests, pap smear and biopsies of sample taken during "exploratory" look-see of my female insides (except fallopian tubes). all completely normal, not even anything suspicious. they syuggested a gastro-intestinal looksee, incl colonoscopy and looksee from the throat down (not just the colon up), to cover the system, incl for stomach unlcers/cancer? I am setting that up. But in the meanwghile, I have continued working out at the gym, and wtliftingh, etc. A few weeks ago, my hips ached during the nite, tyhen my rt knee startted, now my rt knee is swollen and cant bend a lot, and 24/7 pain, worse at nite. a couple days ago, my rt middle finger started hurting and the knuckle is swollen, then overnite last nite the index finger and knuckle swollen and stuiff/hurt. to make matters worse, I have been feverish a lot, not very high (just under 100), but I feel it. and in tyhe past week, every day brings a new brusie somewhere on my rty side, . the first one is about the size of a plum, same shape, and color, but with red dots all over it too. in the middle of the rt side of my back. big bruise--didnt get hit or injure myself there. next nite, small bruise on the knuckle of my rt thumb. again, no injury to it. yesterday, woke up with no new bruise, but by aftyernoon, have a huge (size and shape of large plum) bruise on my rt forearm, didnt hit or injure it . it also has a white spot the dize of a dime in the center, and it is raised 1/2inbch in the center, a peak, from a large hard lump I can feel under the skin, rt where the white mark is. the white mark itself has 2 smaller dots of brighter white, on the top.all these bruises w/o having hurt myself, hit anything, or worked out (cuz my rt hand and rt leg/knee are stiff and painful). I am terrified it is cancer. I just came hom,e from an internist, who took xrays of my knee and hand,told me and showed me there is absolutely nothing wrong with either of them ,no arthritis or anything,all the joints/ bones look fine.
He is sending me for blood and urine work, but for now I am worried and want to know what you think/advise.
thanx. i am w/f/5-6,125 lbs, dob 6/49 (61).
