Re: Dercum's disease, not fatty tumors. These are painful!
Thank you, Tardis, for the information. You have obviously researched the condition, and It is good to hear from someone who has some experience with it.
Since that posting in March, I have lost 20 lbs; and I've been taking high doses of magnesium along with other supplements. I don't know exactly what brought about the change, but there is not near the pain level from the lumps. The lumps haven't decreased at all, though, and at times it is still painful to lie on either side where there is a large lump very close to the hip joint. I can use my arms without pain now, but there are still many lumps. It's a mystery to me what has changed, but I'm grateful!
