I am a male in my late 40s. Since I was ~ 25 yrs old my syptoms have steadly increased to where i am now in serious trouble and the Doctors can not find anything. Syptoms - shortness of breath with any exercise, fingers swell each day, mussles in my upper back tighten and knot up if I sit for more than 1 hr.
Upon standing my arms and legs get real heavy and feel kind of numb. I loose my balance and ability to walk straight. If I do not sit back down I will fall down. Sometimes I get double vision resulting from an eye mussle spasm. Everything seems to be mussle related somehow. I have had almost every test possible. MRI, CAT, blood work, CRT,
At this time, I am looking into water retention related causes as I suspect this may be related to breathing difficlties and fingers swelling.
Tired and worn out, not scared anymore just plain angry and tired. I would like to be around for my Grand Kids.
