2nd opinion: You may want to consider a second opinion, sometimes it can help to get a fresh look. One possibility might be a pinched nerve in the neck which can cause pain running into that area, there are other possibilities as well. A good exam and appropriate studies can usually determine the cause.

Fibromyalgia: When discussing with doctors, point out the different areas of your body that hurt, and include all of them. Also, mention what aggravates the pains, how long the flares may last and what may help with the pain. This gives the doctor information to use in coming up with a correct diagnosis and treatment plan.

Not a major concern: The paralysis itself is of concern. The paralysed muscles will invariably atrophy due to lack of use. Once the muscles recover and start being used again they will enlarge.

Is there a disease that causes muscle weakness and weight loss?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Yes: Generalized muscle weakness is a sign of a significant illness (auto-immune or thyroid diseases are possibilities). Unintentional weight loss is another sign of a significant problem (cancer, thyroid problems, psychological issues, or auto-immune diseases are possibilities). A person with both symptoms should be at the doctor's office getting a full evaluation.

Call or go back VA: If the medication is not working, i'm sure the prescribing doctor wants to know. Call the doctor or go back to the va to get re-evaluated for possibly another treatment regimen. Depending on what was given, sometimes it takes more than 1 day to feel better but if you are concerned, definitely go back.
