Has anyone noticed prior conditions combined with corresponding side effects, like bone pain/muscle spasms being magnified? (I'm on Sprycel, 80 mg.) I am no stranger to back issues. I had a herniated disks and a couple bulging disks 2 years prior to diagnosis. Ironically, that is how I found out I had CML. My back pain had gotten so bad that I requested an MRI before the new year brought in new deductables. The MRI showed a change in bone marrow. A CBC was ordered which showed a white count of 418. Why no CBC was ordered back in September when I went in thinking I had Raynaud's disease, I don't know.
I made an appoint with a back specialist which is Monday. My chiropractor appt isn't til Tuesday and he's closed today. My PC appt the week after. Now I'm thinking maybe it's muscle related and the specialist might be a waste of time and money.
Usually by late afternooon my back is ready to call it a day. If I push through, it refuses to hold me up, my muscles get tight, and finally shooting back pain and spasms. My home remedies include one of those neoprene exercise belts and essential oil.
Can anyone relate?
