From this study (1 week ago):
My muscle tone started diminishing, had changes in skin..thinner, uneven tone. weakness. heaviness in body, weight gain only around middle, fatigue, weak grip, lose balance sometimes, funny feeling in stomack and chest, panic like attacks, but it's not panic attacks all the time, swollen face and facial features and expression has changed, eyelids drooping...sight affected...feels like I'm not getting enough light to see. I haven't felt like myself in a very ,long time over 10 years. Sought answers but everyone tried to give me antidepressants to mask the symptoms. They made me feel like a space cadet but did nothing to solve the problem. I have had to struggle to raise 5 kids, help my family, take care of my elderly Mom and watch her die, and now trying to help with the grandkids all with this horrible problem. I want answers...I need help.
