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.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
