I’m not comfortable writing this and haven’t shared this with anyone bar my best friend in case the docs are barking up the wrong tree. However, it’s playing heavily on my mind (obviously!) and I have no one to talk to as I’d rather present something definite to my family etc than take them on another worry road with me.
Docs are currently investigating (in snail time) an alternative diagnosis. I have a hard, immovable lump and definite thickening in my breast. Next week I will have a mammogram and ultrasound. Today I had my blood test. It is quite possible that I have paraneoplastic neurological syndrome. Apparently, this would mean that there is a cancer in my body which my immune system has tried attacking but has gone haywire (as far as I understand it) and has also attacked my central nerval system thus provoking the neuro symptoms I’ve been having.
It’s a very possible alternative diagnosis for me. I’m not sure what to think or what to feel at the moment!
