I have been suffering with progressive muscle/nerve pain for over a year now. I have been unable to get a diagnosis. My symptoms are generalized muscle pain, intense muscle rigidity in my right thigh, and muscle spasms throughout my body. There's a burning-shooting discomfort down my right leg. I also sleep walk now, and have difficulty waking, I fall alot... I'm not sure if I fall asleep or pass out. I am forgetful, easily fatigued and have very poor balance. The changes in weather seem to increase the pain, but I have a negative RA factor. I've had numerous blood tests done that were bad but got normal after a while, yet my symptoms persist. My description could go on and on, but you get the picture. I'm absolutely miserable and have no definitive diagnosis. If you have any ideas, or anything that might help me, please respond. I have an appointment with a neurologist on the 15th of April. My PC is trying to help me, but seems to be at a loss. I have a pain doctor, but I'm 38 y/o, I shouldn't feel like this. I've always been pretty healthy. I would appreciate any input anyone could give. Again, please help me. I'm at my wits end and the pain is becoming unbearable. I really need some direction.
