Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My vitamin D level is good and all my blood reports are fine. But, why am I getting body pain? Even I sleep for seven to eight hours and still I do not feel fresh. I always get the feel to sleep more. I took Ibuprofen, but it does not work. It disturbs me in sleeping. Most of the time, pain in lower legs, hands and shoulder does not go away. Do I have cancer in my body and it spread to my bone marrow and result in body pain? Do I have any cancer in my stomach or pancreas? Do I have any blood disorder or autoimmune disease or any cancer like leukemia, lymphoma or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in my body? Also, I do not have a fever or cough. I do not experience any weight loss; I feel tired all the time and feel vomiting after eating. Please explain my problem and the treatment.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Based on your query, my opinion is as follows:

  1. No, there is no issue in blood or bone marrow based on the attached report (attachment removed to protect patient identity).
  2. The erythrocyte sedimentation rate - ESR is very good and complete blood count suggests a well-functioning marrow without any involvement.
  3. No autoimmune disorder as antibody screen is negative.
  4. Ibuprofen will usually work, if there is any specific pain by blocking the pain receptors. As it is non-specific, not to worry.
  5. At present, the possible evaluation of hypothyroidism could be a better choice. Also, check for serum calcium levels.
  6. Additionally, maintain good hydration of at least 25 to 33 cups of water per day and regular proper diet. Even gastritis could be responsible for nonspecific symptoms.
  7. Maintain a regular balanced diet with less spicy and avoid stress.
  8. Sleep should be regularly between 10 PM to 6 AM and do see if your bed is in good condition. Mattresses can definitely affect body shape and hence pain can be present.
  9. Also, add half an hour of exercise every day, no matter how mild. Do look into these tests and lifestyle modifications.

Investigations to be done

Thyroid function tests and serum calcium. If they are normal, then lifestyle modifications.

Preventive measures

Lifestyle modifications.
