User avatar Hi Jlarder,

I am not particularly familiar with this syndrome but wanted to give you at least some information. Bone pain from metastatic disease can be very severe and difficult to treat. The area of the pain depends on where the bone is affected. Commonly, cancers that spread to the bone will spread to the spinal column but other bone involvement is also possible.

Follow up with an oncologist is important.

Best wishes. Sorry I cannot be of more help.
