Please help. I have had a neuro-muscular disease for about 3 years that the doctors haven't been able to identify. They say it is probably chronic fatigue with fibro-myalgia. I get intense pains starting in my wrists that work up my arms,then into my back and down my legs until my whole body is engulfed in unbearable pain. Then my heart starts beating erratically and I get chest pains and short of breath. My vision is failing rapidly,and I get intense fatigue with it. Sometimes I get seizures as well. Migraine headaches also. I do have some impairment with the motor responses now that make it almost impossible to write anything longhand. Tests show nothing amiss. Including mri's. Some days I feel almost normal. Can anyone help me by telling me the symptoms of M.D.? I would like to find a cure for this. I should state that 25 years ago I had 3 years of chemo-therapy for an advanced case of Hodgkins disease,that went into remission and never came back. I am now 51 years old if that makes any difference. Please help.
