What is wrong with me?

I don't know if anyone can relate to my problems and can give me some insight...

I suffer from muscle tremors and don't know what causes it. It is not something that can be observed with the eye, but I can feel it from the inside out. Occasionally they are so intense my husband can feel them. I try to sleep, and the tremors keep me awake, or the other way around; they will wake me up from sleeping.

There are a couple other things that may or may not be related to this;
1) No matter how much sleep I get, I am always tired.
2) I cannot loose weight. I've been on every diet, pill, etc that there is, I am a fairly active person and eat less than 1,200 calories a day and still continue to gain weight.
3) My memory is horrible. I can't accurately remember things that happened within the past 5 minutes, and I forget easily.

I've had my thyroid repeatedly tested, and it always comes back normal.

Is there anyone who can give me some insight?

Re: What is wrong with me?

have you been to the dr at all for this? have you been treated for lyme disease and co-infections? also, have they tested you to see what your ebstein barr levels are? ebstein barr virus can cause momo or chronic fatigue syndrome. the foggyness and forgetfulness make me think if lyme or ebv (cfs mostly)

I've never had a fever with any of this, so I don't think it would be either one of those.

Hi Hammond,

Just wondering if you have had your Vitamin B12 levels checked? Your magnesium potassium and calcium levels would also be nice to know in case they are off.

If you are constipated calcium intake is usually excessive... If diarrhea is the problem usually too much magnesium can be to blame.
If you are eating a lot of bread and white flour products, constipation usually
is the result. Try avoiding all breads, pasta, cookies, crackers, bagels,
pretzels and white rice for a couple of weeks to see if that solves and constipation trouble.
