Sudden Muscle weakness, Joint cracking and popping?

Posted , 38 users are following.

My age is 29, from the last 4-5 months I have been experiencing strange symptoms. All my joints are cracking, muscles are weakening day by day. It appears that the Flesh beneath skin is vanishing. Sometimes I feel mild pain while moving my joints. Mild nausea, previously I had bowel movement once in 3 days now it is on daily basis, it seems like the body is not able to properly absorb nutrients. I can see losse skin on my hands, arm pits etc. The strangest thing is that if I put flashlight under my hand then I can clearly see the veins, why the flesh had become transparent? Hair loss from all over body, especially from the scalp. 2 Months ago I gone through a number of tests and the only thing came up was Vitamin D deficiency (23 ng/ml). Montly dose of 200,000 IU was prescribed. Itchining on skin, it gets red too quickly. What all of these symptoms may meanm not that I do smoke about 10 Cigrates a day and slo take Tea 2 times a day. Furthermore I was not tested for Kidney and Thyoroid. Could there be any problem with these two?

    Have you been diagnosed with ME/CFS? If so, thyroid is a really big issue, and you should get a complete thyroid panel done. I don't know about kidney. Ten cigarettes a day, of course, is not a good thing. But you knew that. Also, most tea has caffeine, which is another thing to avoid if you have this illness.

      No I haven't been tested for this. One thing I do remember is that it all started after one month of when I was cured of FLU. During that time I had cough, green mucus in throat/chest, but I was cured from that completely. But after one month I started loosing muscles.

      Sudden onselt of ME/CFS with the flu is very common. But you don't mention if you have the key symptoms for this illness, which are extreme fatigue, postexertional fatigue, sleep problems, orthostatic intolerance. Other symptoms include those you describe, like weak muscles, muscle and joint pain, dizziness, nausea. There is no test for ME/CFS. It's a diagnosis of exclusion, so you should have a complete blood panel done  (maybe you've had this already). If nothing comes up, you should see an ME/CFS specialist, preferably an infectious disease doctor. And take it easy. Don't push yourself, or  (if it is ME/CFS), you can greatly worsen your condition.

    Putting a torch underneath the skin and seeing the veins is normal, I can do that.  I sometimes get itchy skin and it goes red quickly never worked out what causes it. Pain in joints is not uncommon if you have arthiritis setting in and it can start at any age. Why do you think the flesh is disappearing, I suspect not. Daliy bowel movements is good, I would worry if you only then once every 3 days as that doesn't sound good. google vit d deficiency and some of your problems sounds like it could be related.

    I would be more worried about what smoking 10 cigs a day is doing to you. Go see your dr and discuss your concerns.

    I have the symptoms but I don't have weakness in my muscles. Since January my muscles in my chest have gone down with sternum pain. It hurts almost all the time at different degrees of pain everyday. I'm cycling between one day pain in my chest and my arms a little, and another day a lot of pain in my arms and my chest a little. The joints in my hands are starting to hurt also lately. I am a carpenter. When I'm working it seems much better. I don't notice it and I do not feel weak. I've lost about 15lbs since the start of the year, dropped one shirt size, and 3 inches off my waist. My blood pressure seems better than it's ever been and my LDL is in the low range now. My CH50 was high and my doctor refferred me to a rheumatologist. He ordered more blood tests and they came back normal and wrote me off without a diagnosis. My thyroid and urine tests came back normal. I don't have any other issues except this sore muscle pain joint popping thing and weight loss. I have noticed on a "good day" my muscles feel like they're pumped like when I used to lift weights. They will feel like that all day and look like I just got done lifting for that entire day. But the next day these symptoms come back. I have an MRI coming up for my chest to make sure it's not a serious underlying condition. As far as my diet, I've cut the sugar out (about two years now) with foods that hardly contain it. No sucralose, aspartame, and stevia. I'm allergic to ragweed. Since I've taken out the stevia (protein powders) my headaches and "full feeling" in my head have gone away. Hope more people will post so we can try and figure this out...thanks!
