Hi there, i am new to this community, i dont know where to post this but see others have posted here with their health issues.. i am wondering if anyone here can relate or thinks they might have an idea of what is wrong with my body.. ive been suffering from global weakness for about 2 years and it has gradually gotten worse.. this time last year i was not too bad.. this time this year i feel horrible.. i am not exaggerating but sometimes i really feel like I'm dying, i am confused, last 4 months have been the worst. I am really suffering, i dont know whether to attribute this to a muscular or nerve problem but i believe its a bit of both.
To go into my problems a bit more there was this one night where i was sat down at my PC desk eating my dinner and watching a film, just as i ended my meal i started to feel suddenly very ill and very tired.. all i remember is going to bed thinking "i will go sleep this one off" and i woke up about 4 hours later with bizarre symptoms.. firstly i noticed how weak i was like when you have a bout of flu and though i could walk around the house a bit i needed to sit down, next i was shaking like shivering but also like you do a bit with a seizure.. like my arm was just going crazy even in a relaxed position.. it was a shock for me.
Yes i did feel nausea that night and very tired.. i thought it was probably a virus.. however the global weakness i got from this illness never truly went away, it was like getting an illness and recovering 50% but still having it, the nearest thing i could explain it as is like some kind of 'chronic fatigue'. In fact today i am sat here typing confused as to why my legs (especially the thigh muscles) and my arms (especially the upper muscles) are so weak, i feel i am lacking in energy to do anything. I had to stop doing my job which is article writing because my arm strength is just non existent, typing on the computer and writing on paper is difficult, lifting my arm in the air is like trying to lift your arm while someone is pulling it down. The same applies to my legs, if i try to step over a small wall or fence my legs are hard to lift over it.
There are other symptoms such as my muscles becoming sore and painful at night time when they go into a relaxed state.. I really have no clue what has caused this.. Ive been for some scans and tests so far because I'm fed up of having it so i have been on a wild goose chase doing every test/scan on the planet.. my guess is something is up with my back such as spinal damage, i am currently waiting for some results. I am 27 years of age and i can no longer do physical work, socialize much if at all and for that matter i find it hard to exercise.. i really wish i had an answer to what is causing this, if any of you know what this may sound like please let me know. Any other details you require i can share no problem.. thank you for reading.
