Since going into CR last April things have been really great until last October /November when my arthritis flared up,it really began paining me in my left knee but was told that it was very mild.Since Christmas the pain down my left side has increased 10 fold,difficulty inwalking and other areas of life too.Last week I had to pay for an MRI scan to see if anything was wrong and have evidence ready if I needed to see a specialist!!!!.I am wondering whether this is connected to my CLL and does anyone know anything what I can do to help myself.

I know I am replying to my own post but I thought people might be interested to the results that came from my MRI I had in February.The results showed slight bulging of the lower vertebrae and nothing significant.Well since then until the end of August I kept bein g told that it was sciatica ,I was seen by the pain clinic who changed my painkillig medication and was told I could have hydrotherapy and more physio .Well I went to see my dr who happened to be a locum dr,he read my notes and lo and behold I got an appointment with orthopedics.I dont have a trapped nerve or sciatica but my left hip is absolutely shot and I need a replacement urgently.In his write up to my gp he does`ntrule out that the RFC chemo may have enhanced my arthritis and does`nt think that there is any tumor present.Has anyone any advise on this subject it would be much appreciated.
