Cancer, Arthritis, Or Back?

I have severe back pain. I do have back problems that show up in MRI-3 bulging discs, 2 levels of spinal stenosis and 2 levels of facet hypertrophy.

But my pain seems to go beyind this.

I have severe left leg weakness including no reflex in the left leg. My left hand has becomes pins and needles numb with joint problems. I have psoriasis on my hands and legs.

Lately, I have had this STRANGE PAIN...feels like it is coming from deep within me, making my inner body painful.

I have the usual pain down my left leg and sciatica areas along with major discomfort in left and right hip.

Feel a litle more fatigued than usual, especially when I get that weird inner pain.

Bone scan showed degenerative bone activity in right knee, right hip and shoulder

Had some wheezing lately.

Few years ago, CT scan showed shadow on lung. Retook scan next day and it was clear

Sharp pain top of legs into groin

Can this be lupus? If not, is it my back or can it be something like lymphoma or cancer?

Re: Cancer, Arthritis, Or Back?

i have had all the same symtoms over the yrs. i have degenerative joints and spine with fibromyalgia. you really need a specialist, first go to an othopaedic doc, he should send you on to a neurologist if he thinks that is best. i have some wheezing also, due to 42 yrs of smoking!

good luck and hope you get an answer soon.....bevann
