I've got a couple of health issues- and have nevr been officially diagnosed with fibro or chronic fatigue or myofacial or anything but docs suggest it 'might be' fibro- Thing is i don't have any tender points- supposedly you're supposed to have like 8 out of 15 or so or something like that?
--Exhausted al the time-
both heat and cold intolerant (I never was years ago- came on gradual- heat and humidity is the worst- makes me weaker, shaky, sick to stomach- etc)
--Get run down very easily- feel just awful for a few days if I've overdone it- and by over do it I am talking about only being able to do 1/4 of what i used to be able to do- it doesn't take much before I begin feeling run down now-
--some others, can't remember now- thanks to brain fog-
--I need naps during day to recharge enough to get through day- and to help relieve muscle weakness and pain some
But the main issue i have beside the weakness is whenever i try to do things like say something above head, like say painting above head, or going for a walk- my muscles tighten up, and won't release or relax, and i get a painful burning sensation like lactic acid buildup-
I've been forcing myself to walk about 1 mile a night for a couple of reasons, and i thought at first that I'd build up to the distance and it would get better- but it's just getting worse- not even an 1/8'th mile in my calf muscles tighten up and they are that way for the whole walk- the pain is nearly unbearable, and by the end of the walk, I'm kinda waddling side to side because my legs are so stiff from the pain-
--Another condition i have is my muscles are always tensed up- I'm constantly catching myself tensed up and have to consciously force myself to relax- but within seconds, I'm right back to tensing up without realizing it
Magnesium does help but i can't take much of it because of one of my health conditions- I can only take about a 1/2 pill- and it does help relax muscles as I'm resting some- but not much when working or walking
Does any of this sound like fibro? Especially the lactic acid-like burning muscle pain?
