I have number of symptoms, which include vague muscle and bone or tendon pain (especially in joints like knees and elbows), joints popping and crackling noise, tinnitus, pressure in the head, blood sugar near upper limit or slightly over (varies from times to times), dry palms, and wrinkled fingertips (like dehydrated), sometimes pain in other joints than knees and elbows. Could this be all due to stress or and should i ask help form a shrink? I used to workout a lot, recently i changed my lifestyle dramatically, i get up early go to bed early, au contraire to what i used to do. Symptoms started after i had some stressful periods in my life. Some doctor said that i might have pre-diabetes. Please can you help me and give me some advice. Generally i am at good health except mild symptoms i mentioned above. I am 31 years old. I dont smoke, but i used to. I am in good shape and weight about 77kg snd 182cm tall (about 6ft).

Thank you very much, i appreciate your help!

  • I was pre diabetic, with all your symptoms including the palm thing. My fingertips looked like they do after stepping out of the bathtub! Anyhow, I also have hypothyroidism, so am not sure what cured it, because I started eating a GI diet just about the same time I started my meds.

  • Thank You for your reply. Can i ask few more things? Are the problems with your joints gone now? And other symptoms? Is your blood sugar in normal limits now? What meds do you take for thyroid or for diabetes of for both? What is your age now? Thank You very much and best regards! Djordje.
