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.
