I have had bone pain for a number of years, even before being diagnosed with CML in 2005. Been on Gleevec since 2005.
Bone pain, seems to have gotten worse, that could be partly due to my age of 64 years.
Recently I took a few classes in Intro Massage therapy, did about 5 massage.
Turned my guest room into a massage room, my husband and I painted the room and steamed the hardwood floor etc. Also helped my husband paint the downstairs bedroom. That was back in Feb.
Needless to say tendentious set in, mainly my left arm and hand, can barely use the left thumb and hand is weak.
The problem with the hands and arm are a new thing.
The pain in my neck, shoulders and lower lumbar, have been going on rather seriously since 2003.
I remember it clearly, we were getting ready for a long trip. I sas sitting at the computer, it was early 2003, and all of a sudden my shoulder locked up. Been going to physical therapy off and on for years.
Bone Density test was mild arthritis. Blood labs, was borderline vitamin D and magnesium.
I have been going to physical therapy off and on since about 2003.
Started back about 2 months ago, for my hand and arm and back. It helps but it seems to be a lifetime problem.
Its frustrating with the hand issue as I drop things and hard to use to pick thing up.
