Do recognise the following symptoms..?
I ache on exersion - the pain I experience effect all and each of my muscles when there is pressure on a muscle to perform, chewing, for example, my cheeks will hurt. However when I stop chewing the pain stops and starts again when I start chewing again.
More importantly the pains are progressive - the longer I chew the worst the pain gets.
This applies to each and every muscle of my body.

Please help - no consultant has been able to diagnose these symptoms ...

  • Thank you for your prompt reply. I am really greatful that you have taken time to reply to me. That is the kind of response I was hoping to generate in order to acquire some leads. I am of course going to research Glycogen storage diseases/McArdles disease. To answer your question..The pains began in summer 2004 after a severe allergy to blood plasma transfusion. I am told that the transfusion had nothing to do with it but frankly I have doubts. Yours faithfullyZahia

  • also look into gylcogen storage disease VII:http://www.emedicine.com/ped/topic2209.htmIf you think that either of these are possibilities you should get your creatine Kinase levels tested. high levels indicate muscle damage.. Although, this could mean a lot of disorders involving deficient proteins.

  • Phosphoglucomutase deficiency could be considered Thank you for your reply. However, I cannot find anything that explains what 'Phosphoglucomutase deficiency is'. Can you help? I am in renal failure dialysing three times a week since 2003. No one at the hospital experiences these symptoms.Zahia
