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.

Many possibilities

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).

Dr. Ronald Krauser answered:

I have painful dry eyes, mouth so dry nothing quenches my thirst, joint pain, rash on arms, blood work normal, what could it be?

Possible Sjogren's

Joint_pain
Without knowing exactly what blood tests were performed, it is difficult to answer your question with certainty. However, it could be Sjogren's syndrome and there are effective meds for dry eyes and mouth even if the tests for this disorder are negative. Talk with a rheumatologist.
