    Pain on right side of my body?
    Help Help
    September 08, 2009

    I had Stage IV Non-Hodgkins lymphoma, chemotherapy, radiation, and a bone marrow transplant. I have been cancer-free for two years now, but I have chronic pain that is only on the right side of my body. It goes from my neck and down and includes my arm, back, leg, hip, etc.  I have had PT, but it didn't help and am currently getting testing from a neurologist, but nothing diagnosed yet. I also have some muscle weakness in that side and my hand and foot gets very cold and numb. I can't tell if it is nerve or muscular pain. Any suggetions?

    Hi there, Help -

     

    Did you ever find out what was causing this pain and numbness on the right side of your body? Given your medical history, this could be something that's related to the treatment you have for your lymphoma, or it could be something else entirely. I'm curious to find out what happened with these symptoms, and perhaps your answer could be helpful to some of our other community members.

     

    Here are some links for dealing with pain that might be helpful for you, by the way.
