I'm not sure how to describe it, but I feel weak in general recently (the last few months). Walking is painful and exhausting as is things like bending down or lifting things. I went to the doctors about it and he mentioned Fibromyalgia and also sent off blood tests to check for any inflammatory issues as well as deficiencies (Iron/Vitamin D etc).
Going from sitting to standing is a chore, and standing up for a few minutes (like when stood at the cooker or in the shower) is exhausting. I feel weak and like my legs are slowly getting more and more tired even after just being stood there for a few minutes. I have a slight ache in my lower back and I feel the need to steady myself by holding on to the counter or something. I don't think I would fall over necessarily, but the weak/exhausted feeling makes me fear falling over or fainting. I also feel somewhat out of breath, but I don't breathe heavily and all that - I just feel like my breathing isn't strong and I need to sit down and regain my composure, I guess.
It also doesn't feel like something sleeping would help; after I used to do exercise at school, I'd be out of breath and tired but after sitting for a few moments and catching my breath I was fine. Its that kind of exhaustion; not the brain-tired/sleepy type of exhaustion.. I don't know how to explain it better.
This is on top of the pain and such I feel on a daily basis.
I don't know if its worth noting, but I seem to have bad circulation in my lower legs (my feet are perpetually cold and almost purple 90% of the time and my family tells me its bad circulation, but I have no idea). I shake constantly and I'm feel frail and fragile in general.
- I'm 20 (female) and I don't do much exercise. I walk my dog when I can, but that's maybe once a week at best (she gets walked by my mother other days). My eating isn't the best but I eat enough and it's balanced, just very irregular. Same with my sleep (I get enough sleep, but its irregular due to no school at the moment).
