I am 30 yrs only and a year ago I I started getting episodes of tingling and trembling allover my body with strange throbbing or call it pins and needles in my both legs,with weakness in my hands and inability to perform any thing fine with my hands,progressively these symptoms became chronic and I suffer from real muscle or bone weakness,Icouldnt sometimes stand on my feet,nor have the energy to walk,and a week ago now I started having chronic bilateral knee pain which added to my sense of weakness and fatigue.I am not diabetic,I dont have thyroid problems,and Im not obese.I tried taking vitamin b supplements and other multivitamins but nothing changed.Maybe months ago I was curious to know the reason of these symptoms but now Im so desperate just to know what could releif my symptoms so that I could go along with my life.:confused:

  • have you had blood work? Mg will show up in an acetyle choline receptor test. ask your dr to run one. I suffered for many years untill the correct dx was made.

  • Hey Omomar.I'm sorry to say that this is just a guess but there's a condition known as ME which involves weakness of the muscles. I know a young girl that has it. Basically it makes you weak and tired. Sometimes you can't move because your muscles are too weak etc...Unfortunately other conditions such as MS also have symptoms that including tingling, weakness etc... But as far as I know there's no cure for that.Just a guess, as I say, but it could be something like that? I'd go and see a specialist.xxx

If you would like, I can get the doctors name. He is on the cutting edge of Myaesthenias Gravis. My cousin is doing much better then what she was 6 years ago and she is progressing better then any doctor could have even hoped for.
