Hi welcome to healthcaremagic Forum

A detailed clinical examination is necessary to find out whether there is loss of power in hands or the power is normal. nerve conduction studies may be required, also CT or MRI of spine and brain... hence consult a neurologist for further treatment..

Hi About a year ago I starting losing weight. Thought it was just that I had started running again. But suddenly I began to get sores on my arms, neck & shoulders. Concentrating became difficult and I would get easily distracted. I also couldnt sleep and could stay up for days on end after closing my eyes for 5 minutes Thn suddenly I felt very week one day and couldn t get out of bed - almost like it was a really bad flu I then went from running 5 minute kms for up to 10km 3 days prior to barely being able to breathe whilst walking to the kitchen I would get a heavyness in my chest and found it difficult to sometime lay on my side or back After some rest (2-4 months) of plodding around the house, renovating and not going to work The doctors said it was probably anxiety but the psych disagrees I could breath normally but still cant run I cant put the weight back on and keey loosing I am not taking any meds Now I am coughing up a hard phlegm 4 times daily which is yellow/black green - no cough though I also het a lot of twitches in y right hand and leg. Brusing very easily and gets sck easily - partifularly throat

I have had a throbbing pain for about a year that is mostly present in my right leg. It mostly happens while in the sitting position but occasionally while sitting or lying down as well. When I am in the sitting position. The pain extends from my calf to right below my knee . Can someone please tell me what this might be. I have a curvature in my spine and my arms tend to fall asleep to the point i have no feeling in them so I don t know if circulation or spine problems would have anything to do with it.

I had a subcolectomy about a year and a half ago. I've gained about 30 lbs. No one seems to have an answer. I tried weight loss plans, exercising (including zumba). I am hungry all the time and have up to 6 BMs a day, Now I've tried taking a diet pill. I losted about 8 lbs but couldn't continue with the pill becauise of heart palpitations. When I eat healthy foods, which are all high in fiber, they go straight through me. Still no weight loss.
