    Default Muscle biopsy

    Anyone had one done?? Just got my appointment today for next Tuesday @0700hrs Sheffield Royal Hallamshire Hospital.

    Last year had a load of problems with joint pains all over, a couple of steriod jabs in the ass sorted that but in Novenber all pains started to come back, including muscle and nerve pain in both legs. Had numerous tests done, EMG, Nerve test, what seems like hundreds of blood tests and a load more injections in the ass and now a muscle biopsy.

    Just wondering what to expect really.

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    Try having a discogram/lumbar puncture......you feel like you have had your spine removed lol.

    You say you are having a lot of pain with your joints? I had this last year and it got quite severe. I just happened to run out of multi vits whilst offshore so did not take them and hey presto within a week more joint pain lessened by at least 60%

    I still get joint pain and take voltarol an hour before I train and I take a multi vit every other day when offshore but it made hell of a difference to my joints.

    donating Bone marrow was good fun too felt like i had fallen over on black ice for about a week - slight complication with a blood infection afterwards

    but the worst part was the constipation from the iron tablets

    Hats off to you for doing that. I got asked at a place I worked and I said yes. She then told me about 2 weeks before I was going to do it that she had nearly died because of a serious infection she had got. I withdrew my kind offer and started to give blood instead
