Long story short here are my symptoms....
#1) SWELLING in the joints of both hands for four months now - negative ana and other arthritis tests.
#2) MUSCLE WEAKNESS mainly in my thighs - really uncomfortable to go up steps.
#3) NAUSEA - taking prilosec dx with gastritis
#4) SWELLING of eyelids
#5) BRUISE easily
#6) INSOMNIA - taking ambien
#7) difficulty WAKING UP - even without the ambien
#8) intermitent DIARREAH
#10) HEADACHES - lessened with medication
#11) INABILITY to participate in social activity from FATIGUE and PAIN

hands feel "TIGHT" when i make a fist. pain seems more muscular than joint. muscle weakness began approxamately four years ago - would come and go - its now present everyday.

Doctors tried to diagnose FIBROMYALGIA - I dont see how thats possible with my symptoms - they dont fit. its not my THYROID levels are normal tsh,t3,t4,reverse. IRON(FERRITIN) levels slightly elevated at 154(normal is 150) B-12 on the low side 294.
