Hi doctor,

I am feeling weak. I am unable to do my daily works. I have pain in my arms and legs. Eight months back, I was detected with an extraordinary mass of 16 mm in my abdomen near my uterus and ovaries. I have done a CT scan and FNAC tests. I took medicines for two months. On my last ultrasound taken six months back, it was clear and I had some infections. I was advised to have multivitamin injections and medicines. I have elevated levels of ESR, cholesterol, and triglycerides. I also have elevated values of blood glucose, uric acid, vitamin B12, SGOT, and SGPT. Kindly suggest.


Hi, Welcome to icliniq.com. I understand your concern. You had an ovarian cyst. You have done FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology) and taken some medications. Kindly provide detailed information on whether it was operated. I would like to know about the medications taken. Currently, you are having generalized weakness and pain. You also have high blood sugar, cholesterol, uric acid, and abnormal LFT (liver function tests) values. Kindly attach your reports. Please mention whether you have done a thyroid function test. You need a detailed physical examination as you have weakness in your hands and legs. Please mention in detail about your initiation of weakness. Please mention whether it was progressive. Please mention whether you have weakness reaching above your head during combing. Please mention whether you have weakness in lower limbs, any burning sensation, loss of sensation, or numbness. Please mention whether you have increased weakness after doing any activities. Please mention whether you have any cramps or muscle pain. Please mention your color of urine. Weakness can occur due to uncontrolled sugar, vitamin D deficiency, and hypothyroidism. For having symptomatic relief, you can take Paracetamol. You can apply Diclofenac gel locally. You can stop taking cholesterol-lowering medications such as Atorvastatin, Rosuvastatin if you are taking it. You need to modify your diet for reducing your uric acid levels. Avoid taking red meat, processed foods, refined carbohydrates, sugary drinks, alcohol, beer, and hard liquor.
