hi there, for the past 4 months ive been in agony with deep pain in my legs and arms. theres no relief from it. i get tingling in my hands and feet. i keep dropping stuff that im holding. im constantly tired...i can sleep for days and still wake up exhausted. ive had tons of blood tests for thyroid, iron, liver, kidneys etc, but all came back clear. Any ideas what this could be?

  • how old are you....are you a woman....perimenopause or menopause cross my mind...can start as early as mid thirties...if you think this is a possibility check out www.power-surge.com/ non-commercial site for those of us like this. And thryoid is tricky and most docs. not up on latest.....what is your FT4, FT3 and TSH values? You still may benefit from more thorough and better thryoid testing and possible treatment. ALso have you had an MRI? Neurological problems also come to mind..... Joan

  • Huntingtons Chorea. my father died with that disease and he had VERY similar symptoms, im not trying to frighten you but its better to know. go to a doctor and suggest this. if they shrug you off as crazy or what ever you must find a good doctor to help in a diagnosis. but it does sound like huntingtons, sorry

  • A woman I once worked with had similar symptoms, especially dropping things. She would also hold a glass of water and it would be tipped and spilling over and it would not register in her mind what was happening until someone told her.Please have the doctors look for multiple sclerosis and rule it out. Best wishes.
