Had PSA of 98 now 2.6. Hormone inkections in stomach every 12 weeks. Aching muscles. Tiotropium, Prochlorperazine, Fluticasone, Ventolin, Fluoxetine, Quinine sulphate, sorry cannot remember name of hormone injection.
Thank you for that additional information.It is hard to pinpoint exactly what is causing your symptoms via chatting on the internet...and I am sure that you can understand this.That being said, given your history and ongoing symptoms I feel that it is time to stop trying to deal with this at home and make an appointment to see your doctor.It would be helpful if you could bring a journal of when you feel weak, what makes you feel better, how you are sleeping, what nights you are sweating etc when you see your doctor as this may help her to quickly get to the bottom of the problem.Does this make sense to you?It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me. Dr. Rick MD FACS

Thank you for your reply that was what I was thinking, just don't have any confidence in my doctor as my prostate cancer was missed for 6 years even though I had had the PSA blood test in 2007 and this was only diagnosed when I was taken into hospital with a blocked bladder and a gallon off urine in it in 2013.
