Its been about a month since my tumor was discovered, and about 7 months since my dramatic unintentional weightloss began. Over the past few days new pains have cropped up and I don't know what to attribute it to. I've been getting some stabbing pains on both sides of my lower back and on both sides of my groin. Also after spending about 6 or 7 hours on my feet at work just about all my joints are hurting like they've never hurt before. Like all the sudden I have major arthritis. Once I sit down and get off my feet the pain is relieved almost entirely very quickly. When I wake up in the morning there is no joint pain or unusual stiffness at all. My doc has me on Diclofenac and it does help with the stabbing pains in my sides and groin but doesn't help at all with the joint pains that start up towards the end of my work day. Not seeing how a little tumor in my kidney could be responsible for the sudden onset of remote pains. Am I just imagining these pains? Surely its not mets since it only hurts after I've been on my feet awhile. Can kidney cancer cause arthritis like pains?
