My story is short , in 2013 I had a slight fever sore throat and felt I was getting the flu. I rested . Felt better than went back to work . My whole life changed that day . My body went into a all over muscle spams . I was admitted to the hospital given Valium flexeral. Stayed a week , no answers . My health kept decling. Every day all day I spams with joint pain. It's 2014 3 months latter and I'm still fighting this unknown thing. I'm hypothyroidism . My manganesium levels are good. I've been admitted again to the hospital for pain with the joints and muscle spams . Done a MRI and tons of blood work . All negative . Yet I'm using a walker my health sucks . I'm lost for words. They are testing me for stiff persons syndrome. Any other suggestions I'm up for it. Oh my doctors don't think I'm crazy there taking this very serious.they feel it's a very rare thing that is happening to me . I told my doctor he can name it and publish this if we find out what is wrong with me.View Thread
