Update :)

Thank you all! No cancer. Menopause is here. The pain is from extremely fluctuating hormones. No caffeine for three weeks to see if that helps. With the dr, her PA, DH, me, and all of you, the room was quite crowded! Thanks again.

I was ignorant of the cancer scare so I get to happily feed on a dinner of good news without the apprehensive first course. lol So happy for you tami! It has to be a rocky period of time between testing and results.

Thrilled that it isn't cancer. At least with menopause you know you will get through it - although it isn't a pleasant 2,3... years. But no Caffeine! oh my, good luck.

Well, so far today, I have made it without any tea or chocolate. It hasn't been easy! But last time I cut out caffeine I didn't have any withdrawl symptoms. I don't make ice tea at home anymore, but do drink it when I am out. Lately I've been drinking hot tea to warm up. Oh, well, we will see! I'm just happy nothing was found. I can deal with hurting all the time if I know there isn't anything but hormones causing it.

Tami, I'm very glad the news was good; Would something like "Ovaltine"--is it even made, anymore?--be a possible replacement for the caffiene?
