Dr. Earl Smith answered:

Why does taxol cause muscle and joint pain?

It hurts all over

Taxol
I work in Palliative Medicine, and I have seen patients w. various types of pain when on chemo. Often, they are given opioids (morphine, etc.); some patients do better w. "adjuvant" pain medicines such as seizure meds & anti-depressants, even though they are not having seizures nor depressed--like a fibromyalgia patient! Doses vary a LOT; close followup w a Palliative Care doc is a must.

All of a sudden I have painful joint pain on my legs and my knee is feeling inflamated even have trouble walking because of the pain. I am 53 years?

Joint pain

Joint_pain
There is a number of reasons for joint pain. Acute joint pain in the absence of injury or trauma might be suggestive of gout. Osteoarthritis, which is by far the most common type of arthritis in the joint, particularly the knee is another possibility, although, usually it is more painful than inflamed. I would recommend being seen by a doc who can hopefully sort this out for you.

Stop taking shots!

Perhaps you are having an allergic or autoimmune response to something in the injections. Each time you do this the response from your body is amplified. This is called an anamnestic response, and could be potentially dangerous. Whatever you are trying to accomplish could probably be done in a much safer fashion with oral supplements.

Experiencing joint pain in fibgers and a bump on knuckle painful to touch?

Many possibilities

Hand_pain
Your pain could be as a result of many different things. A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. Causes of pain may include: Trauma (fracture, sprain, arthritis), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormality and Neurologic conditions (neuropathy).

Crohn's disease is an autoimmune disease that just does not affect your GI tract. It has been associated with a sero-negative arthritis similiar in many respects to Rheumatoid arthritis. Have your doctor get you a consultation with a rheumatologist to confirm and aid in your complex treatment
