For 6-7 mo. my husband has experienced muscle weakness and joint stiffness/inflexibility. He cannot do many things he could do, or struggles with simple things like turning a key. He is 61, but always very active and athletic, working out at least 3 times a week. He also has extreme fatigue, especially in the evening. His blood test are normal, thyroid normal, venous doppler, normal, kidneys normal. heart, blood pressure, all normal. I believe he may be experiencing some speech problems. He is also experiencing constipation, altered sensations as to hot and cold, and many other irritating symptoms. He did have West Nile about 5 yrs. ago--was not hospitalized, but very sick, and took a long time to recover.
I am wondering about ms, als, or other possibilities?? Any help appreciated.
