Hello, i have been having frequent feelings of both calf muscle weakness for about 2 months now, some days with arms and neck muscle weakness. I find it so uncomfortable everyday doing household chores and taking care of my 2 kids. It even gives me anxiety that my legs might give out while walking in public.

Just about 1 week ago i started to have tremors while moving a limb and bending, and my muscles gets tired easily. I have been taking OMEPRAZOLE on and off. I have stabbing pains on my legs too where i was advised to take polynerve (B1 B6 B12). My bloodwork last February was fine according to my OBGyne. My ENT and neurologist found no significant findings just recently. Am i this fatigued only? So worried. smhair

Hello lovleir, I don't know how much help I can be with this. I've
always been fairly active and done a lot of hiking. However, about
15 years ago, I noticed the calf muscles in my legs getting sort of
soft. It's before I knew I had chronic fatigue and I also now have
Lyme too which can effect your muscles I've never been given any
medication specifically for this. I had a lot of muscle cramps at night
however, in my lower legs. That was to the point where it woke me
up and I had to jog about for 10-15 minutes to get rid of it.
For this, I've taken Magnesium. That helps with muscle
soreness. Also, I've cleaned up my diet and no longer do any
processed foods or refined sugars. I try to limit caffeine and I
stay away from a lot of grains. I'm also sensitive to Wi-Fi and
don't use a cell phone. I'm sensitive to those also.
I do experience weakness in my arms and legs too. I
attribute that to chronic fatigue. When that happens, I am able
to lie down on the couch. I nap, sleep or listen to the tv. Not
very exciting. But I have to do that. I don't have 2 kids to
chase after or care for like you. But I would just suggest
putting your feet up whenever possible and pacing yourself
as much as you can. If you're out in public, look for
the nearest bench or place to sit down. I feel this is very real
despite good blood work and all of that.
(I assume you've had your thyroid and adrenals checked out?)
I know because I
too have to deal with this everyday.

p.s. I also go to a chiropractor but can't say for sure if this would
help you or not. It does help with my neck and shoulders
and lower back which tend to get misaligned.
