Hello all,

here it goes:

random small yellow bruises - quarter sized (appearing unevenly in time and place)

skin that gets really dry and shiny, with purple and yellow tinge to it

brusing very easily

slow steady weight loss despite healthy diet and continued eating

spongey muscle - this one is the wierdest, my forearm and calf muscle feel like a sponge when i squeeze on it, a sponge that is filled with water, slowly losing the water

random soreness and general exhaustion




Most of these symptons are occurring in my legs and arms, with my right side of the body experiencing the worst part. A year ago i was running 40 miles a week and felt great, and now i can't even run three without feeling like my shins are going to break in half and that my lungs have shrunk.


Here is what i've been checked for that came out negative:
HIV
syphillis
Hepatitus
lyme's
gonhorria
anemia



any ideas?

You may have cancer, you really should go to doc and have it checked out! Perhaps possible leukemia or some other type, it is your right whether they believe it to be a possibility or not to be fully tested for this and have it ruled out.Good Luck~
