Hello, new here.
Been having many strange symptoms on and off for years but in the last couple of months have intensified with new symptoms.
I’m 48, F and about 20 pounds overweight. I’ve always suffered from fatigue and joint pain which has been loosely diagnosed as fibromyalgia. However, the new symptoms are making me wonder if this is something else.
Specifically I have joint pain mainly in wrists and feet, sore muscles like I’ve done a big workout (I haven’t) especially backs of thighs are always sore. My right leg and arm feel weak and heavy. I’ve seen GP for numbness in legs before, my fingers and arms are twitching like crazy. I have blurred vision like a film over my eyes (been for eye test and prescription is up to date), I’ve seen GP and breast clinic for electric shock type pains through breast a couple of years ago. When I eat carbs, I feel very ill and have palpitations.
Lately I’ve had horrendous shoulder pain and when pressed it feels very tender and sore.
So the main symptoms are the twitching and sore muscles and the weakness.
Does this sound like anything anyone here can relate to? I don’t smoke, I’m teetotal and don’t drink much caffeine other than three or four cups of tea per day.
I’m at a loss where to start really as my GP is not the most helpful.
