: 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.

I was disabled with endocrine -hormone imbalances! similar symptoms...if you also have hot/cold temperature changes, hair loss or excessive growth, fatigue, depression, belly weight gain or weight loss, all or none of these symptoms, have thyroid checked..if the TSH seems normal to the doctor, INSIST on a TRH test which will show underlying low thyroid when the TSH seems normal..also if the TSH is around 5.5 or so, it is now a known fact that we do better at a 1.5-2 level of thyroid. Get the book,
The Thyroid Solution available over the internet.

I am doing ever so much better. I was in sad shape...it is a slow process, so don't get discouraged and keep plugging along. Get yourself educated on your thyroid needs! This affects women more often than men, but still does affect men...esp. if you have or do work with chemicals, pesticides, and many other toxic substances, such as chemotherapy!
Check it out!
