Hi, I have been to specialists and my GP, but can't get any answers. I am having all over muscle twitching, muscle fatigue, exercise intolerance, and some muscle cramping in my calves and a burning sensation on my quads. There are days when these symptoms are bad, but then ease up on some days, although they are still there. Also, there are some days where I feel symptoms in my throat area, my neck will twitch and I will have a harder time swallowing. It's strange because the symptoms seem to migrate somewhat, get better and then show up somewhere else.

I am scheduled for an EMG on Wed. and had lots of blood work but nothing has come up. I am on Doxy because my Dr. suspected Lyme, but i don't have that. I asked if he could extend the cycle because I feel somewhat better on it and just read where Doxy can act as a anti-inflammatory drug. I am getting very anxious after surfing the web as to what this could be. I am at a loss and it's been going on for months. I did have a neuro exam and it was unremarkable.

Thank you.
