Hi, thank you for getting back to me.
I wouldn't say it's neck and back pain, just that they're very tight.
The muscles are not weak; I don't feel any loss of strength.
Nope, doctor didn't notice anything, just ordered a blood test.
Cramping does not come on when working out or playing sports; actually, don't really notice it during those types of activities. It's more at rest and it's definitely random.
Thank you for your response. Two other quick questions before I accept if you wouldn't mind:
1) Some of the symtoms sounded a bit to me like Lyme disease. I was in Belize for two weeks at the end of September. I don't remember seeing any "bulls-eye" but I was covered in bites and red all over. Does it sound at all that that might be a possibility?
2) And I partied pretty hard for the month or so leading up to this, doing ecstasy three times, 1-2 pills each time. I know that usually plays with seratonin levels; could that affect the nerves as well. I don't do it a ton, maybe 4-5 times a year for the past five years or so. I know it's not good for you, but wonder if it could cause these muscle issues.
I will ask my doctor about the other tests you mentioned as well. Thank you!
