      What phase is the clinical trial you are in, Greg? It could be that some of your symptoms are new and a result of the drug(s) you are being given through the trial.

      Bengal- I am now 40 years old, diagnosed age 34. I have had chronic fatigue the entire time yet regularly exercise and practice yoga. Although I don't find myself with more energy, I do enjoy the exercise. The fatigue is REAL and evidently if you don't personally experience it, it doesn't exist as far as some doctors are concerned....

      I have really bad, very low back pain since the cancers.
      Have had all the tests, all the therapies, all the pills and out-patient shots & minor nerve abalations or whatever they are called, but still the doctors can't put their finger on it.
      Yoga, and stretching and warm water and ice and CBD products-- nada! Relief for a few minutes can be found by the stinky creams similar to Ben Gay ointment.

      Naturally, the weight has piled on as exercise/walking is not an option.
      It is really getting too expensive to go to the therapist or doctor or whatever in vain.
