For the sake of myself and other people who might search up this post and find it useful, I decided to keep a record of what is going on with me.
Background info: I am a 29 year old male, exercises regularly and works an 8-5 office job. Prior diagnosis before all mentioned symptoms was migraine with aura.
Symptom: Fasciculations all over body, mostly present around legs and lower spine area. They are good to me on certain days where they decrease in frequency.
Neurologist: Performed reflexes tests. All passed. Nerves on clinical check without tests were highly conclusive of no damage. Could be due to stress and anxiety.
Symptom: Leg, arm and abdominal muscles easily tired out. Feels crampy or about to get cramps. Shaky knees. Limbs feel heavy. Pain in muscles or joints intermittently on some days.
Neurologist: Analyzed tender points and were slightly painful. Possible fibromyalgia. May cause easy fatigue and deep ache. High muscle sensitivity. Performed strength test and concluded Perceived weakness.
Symptom: Labored breathing that comes and goes. Feels like lungs are congested and airway constricted all the way to the throat. Usually disappears after a few hours. Occurs Everyday.
Neurologist: Fibromyalgia will not cause breathing issues. Most likely anxiety.
Presently, over 3 weeks now, the Fasciculations increased with admittedly stress levels remaining the same due to new symptoms surfacing. Feeling extremely uneasy about the muscle issue as now I notice my tongue muscles just above the larynx or Adam's apple is stiff and tires out easily. Also noticed because of this, I am more aware of my speech issues as I felt more tired and lazy to use my tongue. Note that this also comes and goes. Occasionally wake up with pins and needles all over now.
i am going to see the neurologist again on Monday and will ask for a EMG test for arms,legs and tongue if possible. Going to lung specialist on Friday to determine if there is any isolated cause for the occasional breathlessness. I'll update after each visit is done.
Question for the experienced guys here. Do you concur that fibromyalgia or CFS will produce symptoms like this?
Sirry for the Long post. I hope as a new member I'll be able to contribute back.
