long term muscle weakness and fatigue

When i was 19 yrs old i started having tiny spasms close to my knee / arm joints. Over the last 15 years its spread to my entire muscular system. Disgustingly painful rib cramps that double me over, muscle spasms from head to toe ..Seen a bunch of specialists. No one diagnosed me with anything like MS or fibromyalgia. In the last few years fatigue has kicked in and i havnt woke up feeling remotely restored in along time.

Recently saw a herbilst and he told me he believes ive had a long term magnesium deficency so ive been drinking this powder for 2 - 2 and a half mnths. Havnt noticed much improvement. My homocystiene levels were very high at 15.6, taking sublingual b12's and folic acid daily has got that level down to under 10. Besides that there hasnt been much improvment. My testosterone level came back at 11 (5-25) - despite applying .5 ml of testosterone cream twice a day . Lutenizing hormone is at zero! (2-200) and my igf-1 levels over the last year are dropping dangerously low. last time i had it tested was at a level of 12. My Vitamin D levels were basically non existant, started taking caltrate plus and they went up to 70 (50-300) but they dont seem to be going up any further from that. Iron levels are high but the doc said something about something else can cause a high ferritin blood result other then actually having high iron levels., and that he believes my iron levels are actually low...

In the last week the muscles in my arms have become ridiculously week, only thing ive been doing different is taking vit d3 drops under my tongue, and ive been under some stress due to losing my driving lisence etc.

any insight or comments would be appreciated. thnks
