Hello Everyone, I am 81 years old today, and new to Pro Health's Message Board. Have been suffering for the past several years from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. It keeps me from going anywhere. Had been to 7 different doctors before it was finally diagnosed 2 years ago. It came on gradually with lightheadedness, hypoglycemia, poor coordination and balance problems...left me with the feeling that from my hips down I feel very strange...as though the bottom half of me doesn't work with the upper half of my body. It's a weird feeling, and I have great difficulty walking...not only the muscle spasms and weakness, but the weird feeling of floating as I walk. I can only shop at the supermarket or I have to spend a good part of each day lying on the couch due to allergies, terrible muscle and joint pain, severe weakness, bladder & bowel problems...and numbness in my feet an legs just below the calf. I asked my doctor about the numbness, but he didn't answer. Have any of you experienced this? Would appreciate a reply. Thank you so much. Blessings, Doris D. Garza CFS/Fibromyalgia have numbness like this?
