My husband is undiagnosed and has the following symptoms:
Pain in toes (moans in sleep) - seems to be spreading to hands, elbows and calves. Feels like burning, needles- feels like neuropathy symptoms...

Weight loss - 15lbs in last 6 months

treadmill -result - took 35 minutes to get his heart rate up - stamina is good
ct scan - chest - normal
mri - head - normal
chest xray, ultrasound and heart monitor- normal
nerve conductive studies... upper and lower - normal
About 15 years ago he had about 4 Gran Mal seizures. He was drinking alot of equal (the blue) sugar substitute. His sister read that they don't let pilots drink it because it does something to your brain, so he stopped and has not had one since.
Anyone have any suggestions???... we have been to an Oncologist, a heart specialist, an internist, and a neurologist. He doesn't feel good, wants to stay home, and isn't motivated to do anything but work because he thinks he is dying and wants to finish his work... sounds like Mozart, he is a lot like DiVinci - he is 48, 1/2 Asian and 1/2 Italian. He is wasting and has pain.
