We were just told my mother has AML Leukemia. She has been getting blood and platelets off and on since we found out. But now she is suffering with a horrible stiff and sore neck. She can barely move her head up & down or side to side. Could this be related to the AML or is it just a pulled muscle or stifff neck from her being so tense and sitting in a very uncomfortable chair 3 days out of 7 getting blood.
Hi. Sorry to hear about your mum. I just wanted to say that it could be the AML, but also could easily be a bad seating position. I was diagnosed with AML May 2009. Prior to having the diagnosis I had been stiff the full length of my back and into my neck for about 6 months. I am also a massage and myofascial release therapist. Bad posture and inactivity are big factors in a stiff neck. If it is from the AML, the treatment from the doctors should help get rid of the stiffness. My back is so much better now.
I had 4 lots of heavy chemo during 2009 and was barely out of hospital. I have since had a bone marrow transplant in April of this year and am doing well. The doctors have done a really good job, but I also put my brilliant recovery down to a positive attitude and lots of Reiki healing and meditation. PLEASE GET SOME REIKI....
