then developed onto clicking aching wrist thumb and shoulder joints
muscle aches at the back of my knee on one leg and all down my arm on the right.
my shoulder joints can be painful enough that i can no longer always sleep on my side.
i also get leg aches and back ache when resting.
and have sweaty clammy hands feet and underarms all the above are new syptoms that started just over 5 weeks ago. I am not needing as much sleep as i was 5 weeks ago I can go all day with no req for sleep but am still having bouts of muscle/limb weakness and general lethargic episosed were all i feel able to do is lie in bed all day watching TV which has lead on to depression due to fear of possible M.E
i also have all over muscle twitching which is something i used to associate with a candida flare up but it has never lasted 5 weeks
