I am a 34 year old female who has been healthy up until this past year.
I began having night sweats...not drenching...one year ago...every single time I sleep...day or night.
My family doctor did a TB test (negative), thyroid levels (normal), & she said I don't have lymphoma because my white blood cell count was normal last October.
Since last November I've been having bone pain...almost everyday. It's mostly in my shins & thighs. Deep dull, shooting, throbbing pain in small areas. My family doctor hasn't done anything about it. Not even a calcium level or hormone levels. She said it sounded like shin splints even though I told her my activity level hasn't changed at all. I don't exercise. I also reminded her that the pain is in my thighs too. She questioned as to whether it was bone or muscle pain. It's deep...pain I never felt before.
I don't know what else to do. I'm not getting help, but I don't even know if I need to be more persistent. Does this sound serious to anyone? Any suggestions as to what to ask for at my next visit? Please somebody help.
Your sweats could be an early menopause symptom, but with your bone pain, it is probably a calcium deficiency. Please go back to your doc and get your calcium level checked. In the meantime, a good calcium supplement would not hurt. Personally, I think coral calcium is best, but calcium lactate is good, too. Good Luck.
