I have been suffering from muscle pain and weakness for about three and one half years. I have had two MRI's and seen three neurologists. My large muscles, mostly my arms and legs are weak and feel "squeezed" at times. The pain can be unbearable at times. I currently take 1200mg of neurontin, 800 mg CoQ 10, 15 mg, meloxicam daily. I also have a cream used topically for the needle like pain I get in my toes. The weakness seems to have been stable for the past 6 months. The pain has been off the charts for about two weeks. I have recently been having some breathing issues and have a chroninc or irritative cough since 9/2009. I do have arthritus in my spine. EMG's are normal. MRI's show white matter damage, but supposedly doesn't look like MS.
Do you know of a condition that may be causing this?
