I'd like to ask you how you describe the possible pain of lipomas? I know most medical articles state that lipomas do not usually hurt (they are nonpainful). Well mine does, or actually, did. Since I started eating the apricot seeds to remove lipomas
, the pain stopped. I used to have also bothering itchiness but that stopped too after the seeds.
I really didn't care about the itchiness so much, except that it also reminded me about the lumps
because naturally I scratched the itchy spots. I noticed that my lipomas started always itch and hurt more after I had consumed plenty of alcohol. My lipomas also felt extremely hard after some drinking. I still do not know why? Has any of you noticed this?
The worst pain I have ever felt was caused by one of my lipoma. It was located in the outer side of my right thigh. It had been there for some years and it was the size of a half grape. It usually didn't bother me too much during the days, but I woke too many times in the middle of the night because I was literally feeling like someone was stabbing my thigh! The pain was so bad I felt I was going to pass out.
That was when I started to seek for lipoma removal. I first tried the Lipostabil injections but they only made the lipomas softer and although the pain disappeared for months, it gradually came back. I had an lipoma MRI taken at the time and it showed the lipoma had become a little smaller. But I think the doctor didn't a) inject enough Lipostabil and b) Lipostabil is not as good for lipomas as Deoxycholate
I have since had that evil monster lipoma surgically removed but I still remember the suffering it caused me. I think it caused me pain, because as I was sleeping on my right side, the lipoma was pressing on my nerve or blocking a vein or something. And if I moved in my sleep and the status quo was changed, then the pain hit me like a knife! I actually screamed sometimes! Awful.
And the pain didn't relieve immediately, it lasted sometimes minutes before it slowly subsided. I can only imagine how it hurts if someone has a lipoma on their back and it is pressing on some nerve. I'm glad I went trough the lipoma excition although it left me scarring.
I have lipomas in my arms too but they are never causing me any pain. Just the ones in my thighs and buttocks.
Before the apricot seeds, my lipomas sometimes ached in a persistent and pulsating manner. It came and go for no apparent reason?
Of course you could try some pain relieving gels
to ease up the pain. I'm not a huge fan of pain relieving pills since they might be dangerous if used continuously.
I'd like to know do you feel pain or itching and how you cope with it? And do you have any idea why alcohol consumption made my symptoms worse (it doesn't anymore btw)? Have you noticed any patterns?UPDATE 2013:
I am almost pain free
because of the natural lipoma supplement mix
I now use. I strongly recommend on testing some antitumor supplements since they will most likely slow down the growth rate of your existing lipomas and prevent new ones from appearing. I have personally noticed my pain diminish and I haven't seen new lipomas i a year or so!
