First, I'm a male 51 years old. I've always been in good health. I was very athletic when I was younger and continued to stay in good shape through the years. I've always worked out and stayed in good shape. I am 6'ft and up to the last year weighed around 175 to 180. The last year I have gained weight up to 200 lbs. The past year I started losing energy and losing the desire to go work out. For several months I would have energy to go work out and then lose it and it would take a few weeks to get the energy back. About 2 months ago it started getting worse. I started having pains all over my body. At first they would come and go. Over the last month it has increased. Sometimes the pain is unbearable. My legs hurt and pain in my arms that hurts down to the bone. Sometimes pain and tension in my neck and shoulders. Along with this pain is stinging burning pains I have in my feet, ankles, hands and fingers. These stinging pains happen sometimes on other parts of my body. Besides all these pains I have sore or tender places on different parts of my body. They almost feel like I'm bruised but I don't see a bruise. My stomach stays upset alot and I can't sleep solid at night. I sleep for awhile and wake up and repeat it all through the night. I've always worked hard. It usually takes alot to bring me down but whatever is going on now is dragging me down. Getting through my work day is very hard some days. I told my GP about this and he told me I may have a vitamin deficiency. I'm not sure but someone at work said it could be fibromyalgia but men don't usually have it. I would just like to get better. Any opinions.
