Bone pain can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'worrying' to 'generally fatal'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose bone pain, we could:
|Sickle Cell Disease||17%||Unlikely|
|Chronic Fatigue-Fibromyalgia||1%||Ruled out|
|Phosphorus Deficiency||1%||Ruled out|
|Bone Cancer||0%||Ruled out|
|Vitamin D Need||0%||Ruled out|
Do you suffer from diffuse bone pain? In other words, vague bone pain that is impossible to pinpoint exactly? Do not include pain that is due to a known injury.
Possible responses:→ Pain is due to an injury / don't know
→ Slight, not always noticeable
→ Significant or always noticeable
Diffuse bone pain can be caused by a diffuse cancer. Pain usually results when a tumor pushes on bones, nerves, or other organs in the body.
Bone pain, especially in the legs, can be a sign of ALL, CML, or hairy cell leukemia.
