Yes, and yes, and that grouping of symptoms was one of the reasons I was evaluated for "why, it must be premature menopause". That was after we played the "why, you must be depressed" game and then the "well, TSH is NORMAL, but maybe it's your thyroid" game. With months for med trials, and repeat blood work. Where you out in sunshine? That is often a big trigger for me, and I describe the clammy chill as a bone chilling burning, and the muscle weakness so complete I have to lay down, anywhere, somewhere, before I fall down. And the rest doesn't help. And get nauseated and dizzy, and there have been times I supported myself against trees to lower myself to the ground. My big 120 lb. shepard mutt actually learned to lean on me to hold me up, and let me use his neck to pull me up. I learned the hard way not to walk anywhere, thank God for my cell phone, and to be grateful I didn't break a bone when I fell. I have cns lupus, and taking neurontin was like a miracle cure for me. Hope your good days are better soon,
God knows, even if I don't....
