Please somebody help me! I can not walk too long. My leg muscles get very heavy, stiff and weak whenever I stand or walk. My legs hurt (a burning aching feeling) when I stand up and put weight on them. This has been going on for a long time and getting worse. I can NOT do any physical activities because of this. And I used to do a lot of walking and exercise. Then, a few months ago my shoulder muscles started hurting and getting stiff and weak when I used them. It is like the symptoms are moving up my body from my legs into my arms. My doctor does not care, or listen to me. I do not think he believes me. What could be wrong? Muscle function tests (creatine kinase) were normal, and now the doctor ignores me!
