My friend has these symptoms and we are trying to figure it out but just can't seem to get a diagnosis for her. She has an appt with a neurologist in a couple of months but her condition gets worse and then seem to be ok, but we are very concerned for her. Here are the symptoms: She can barely move her legs, she doesn't exercise but feels as though she has worked out - she has that soreness/stiffness and they also feel as though they are burning (the muscles). She walks very slow due to this, and it happens from time to time. This is, however, the longest it has stayed (almost 5 months now) she has pain but only if she pushes herself too hard and then will feel it, otherwise it is more of a tightness, burning feeling more pain. She has had many blood work done but everything always says it is nomal. Her potassium level is low but still in the normal range. She also gets a lot of cramps, so she thought she had low potassium. Does anyone know what this could be? Her regular doctors, have tested her for lupus, lyme disease, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis and nothing really fits what she is going through.
I hope someone can help or at least steer her in the right direction. We do think that the neuorologist will help but her first appointment that she could get isn't until June.
Thank you in advance for your help on this!
