    5'4 120 pounds
    never been any heavier, clean eating healthy life style.
    skin and muscles suddenly "wasting"
    tested negative for autoimmune,thyroid
    vitamin d deficient
    all other tests normal

    attached is a photo of forearm where it was impossible to pinch skin, this is how my skin is every where on my body, loose and stretchable. it almost feels Inflamed or fluffy. also happening in face.
    appeared within 3 month time frame

    other symptoms
    hair loss (bit anemic)
    pain all over body
    feet swelling turning blue(tested negative for diabities)
    veins popping out all over body
    negative for arthitis
    injuries- feet injured from rubbing on concrete a year ago
    hit back of head about 1.5 years ago

    doctors can't figure it out from basic tests and it's difficult to find a doctor show genuine concern.

    Re: sudden skin change

    I would consider ehlers danlos syndrome for the skin problems. The other symptoms sound like autoimmune. There are so many tests for autoimmune disease that I doubt you had them all done. I would particularly test for lupus, scleroderma and myositis because of the muscle wasting. It often takes repeated tests over time to have something show up. If you have any of your lab results you could post them, with reference ranges, to see your results and what might be missing.
