I have been going to Drs now for about 20 years. No one can find anything wrong. Here are symptoms. Please help if you can think of anything.
Chronic fatigue
muscle cramping
muscle weakness
shooting pains in legs
red eyes
red streaks in fingernails and toenails
fingernails sore to touch
restless legs
feet or hands drawing
stiffness
clicking joints

I have been checked for rh cfs and many others they can't find anything wrong. I can't even get out and work in my yard anymore I just don't have the energy. I use to build things create things and now I have had to give it all up. If I do get energy for a day I am in bed for 2 days trying to recoup

  • I reckon you have EXACTLY the same condition as my wife(exact same symptoms anyway!). It's called "Fibromyalgia". It took a long time for the doctors to diagnose it as the medical community on the most part aren’t too familiar with it.It might seem like the wrong thing to do (especially for the first couple of painful weeks) but the only relief she gets is through regular exercise walking & gym stuff etc..

  • Thank you for all the input. I had asked my doctor about both things you both have mentioned and he says its been ruled out. My hands are now getting so stiff its really hard to go to work and its really really hard to climb any stairs. I don;t really have any pain. I am just stiff everywhere and my muscles don't seem to work. I could sleep all day and all night if I was able to. Thanks again for your input

  • Wow- 20 years is a long time to have no relief and no diagnosis. Have you considered an alternative approach? I recommend something called NAET. You can find info on this treatment at www.naet.com. It is a revolutionary form of medicine and is very helpful for chronic unexplained illnesses. Dr. Nambudripad believes that many chronic conditions stem from allergies and an overactive immune response. Please look into this - it is amazing. Best wishesDOM
