Before considering that it's "sympathy pains" ... I'd likely take him to the doctor, tell the doctor about your shared symptoms...and see if there isn't something environmental going on, that's affecting both of you.  Low levels of carbon monoxide? Radon? Something in your drinking water (do you have your own well, for example)? Something that you're both allergic to, in your house? some chemicals you use regularly for cleaning, or painting? Some other way that you are both being poisoned by something you are sharing?

...I am not a doctor, nor health professional, and don't pretend to be one, here.....

thanks for the input-- we will look up the poison thing-- also he's had fatigue and chronic heartburn chest pain stuff in the past that was chalked up to stress by a doctor-- just wondering what is going on-- agreed should consult a doctor-- it comes and goes and travels as far as the tingling and pain-- and weakness--- more strength and energy in both of us after running our pup in the field (not heavy running just a bit back and forth) also has had trouble in the past with slurred speecha dn cognitive stuff before we were together and anxiety and depression-- it's quite curious

Hi Zoe,
 
    I'm sorry your hubby is having some issues.  I would have him checked out to be on the safe side.  As a spouse with MS myself, ironically my own health issues worsened about the same time my husband was diagnosed.  Coincidence? Perhaps, but I think stress had a lot to do with it too.  Please let us know if you find out anything and best wishes to you both.

Hi Zoe,
 
   Boy when I type stuff I reread it a few times to make sure it makes sense and it did to me last night.  Reading it again now I can see why you are confused!  To clarify my husband has MS, my illness is something totally different.  Sorry for the confusion :-)
