I know no one is a doctor but I'm just looking to see if anyone has symptoms such as mine or if they can relate. I'd really like any direction that points to a diagnosis and/or possible relief that I can ask my doctor. I'll try to keep it summarized with my symptoms first then what tests I've had done (spoiler: 98% normal).
Symptoms started 1-2 years ago with waking up in the mornings with very sore joints: ankles, arms, etc.. I would try to exercise (regular cardio) but the next morning I felt as if I could barely get out of bed, my body ached so bad. Thighs started aching randomly a few months after and then I noticed the heaviness in my legs getting out of a friends pool. Very insidious.
Since then, body gets so fatigued I feel as if I'm carrying twice my body weight. It is extremely exhausting to walk around a department store or even shower. Also, my brain is not necessarily always tired, just more so my body. Since then, my left leg has become very heavy and it has caused me to walk off balance. Walking on it for long periods of time is very exhausting and my foot starts hurting. It also feels as if the arch of my shoe is oddly pressing into my foot. My face, fingers, thighs, calves, and feet will twitch (not all at once). I drop things and my arms ache so badly a lot of times it wakes me from sleep or I am unable to sleep. And I experience numbness in right side of face, forearms, and shins.
I also now have slasthma and Ménière's disease.
