Male, mid 30's. Average height and weight.

Symptoms starting approx 2 years ago.
Charlie horse like cramps in arms, legs, and back
Joints swollen/sore (off and on) (wrists, fingers, feet, ankles, elbows)
Muscles hurt for no reason, no new activity(pain is like after doing a major workout the day before)
Muscles spasms/jerking- at night - random muscles ***k all night long, every night.
Muscles spasms- during the day - can sit relaxed and watch a section of body and see Muscles contract again and again and again. This is happening all over the body, arms/legs/chest/back/etc.
Throughout the day having dizzy spells. One fall to ground due to this.
Tingling in both arms from shoulder to hands. Tingling in chest from belly button to shoulders.

Been to 3 doctors, an arthritis doctor, a nerve doctor, a heart doctor.
Testing, lots and lots of blood work, cat scan, muscle test, ekg, mri, and etc. everything comes back normal. Doctors have no answers. Tired of trying medications that do nothing to help the issues/pain.

Does anyone have ideas or specialist that may be useful for these problems.

I have fibromyalgia. Try drinking 32 ounces of gatorade daily for a week and see if that solves the muscle issue. If it does, then get checked for fibro, since fibro eats up the electrolytes in the body. Basically, it sets your muscles into constant "fire mode".

  • Just curious to see if you found anything out. Your symptoms sound just like mine - but my dr. doesn't believe fybromialgia is real - so I haven't been tested.~Rebekah
