I have been suffering muscle weakness for 3 years, it affects both arms and legs, I cannot use my wrist or ankle flexors, take a proper step or raise my arms above my head, it comes and goes with episodes lasting 5minutes or 5 days, the longest I have been without an episode is 5 months, when it comes on my hands become swollen and I feel fatigued. I have had MRIs and Emgs and countless blood tests all of which have been in the normal range. help anyone?
