I need some help desperately. I have been experiencing pain that seems to be rotating around my body affecting hands, knees, ankles and shoulders. Some days i can't write with a pen and many ays it is hard to even type.
The Oncologist has seemingly indicated that he has not seen this before. They issued me Hydrocodone which seemed to make things worse and was not effective in relieving pain. Yesterday they changed me to Morphine, 30mg ER. Although it is probably too soon to draw a conclusion; the Morphine does seem to assist with pain management. There are two working hypothesis: 1) This is a reaction to the Oxaliplatin; 2) These are preexisting conditions that have been aggravated by the Oxaliplatin.
Anybody else had the same thing happen; traveling joint pain and extremity pain??
