Hypothyroidism?: Depending on family history and other symptoms - hair loss, constipation, weight gain, menstrual changes, your symptoms could be due to hypothyroidism. Your symptoms could also be related to anemia. However, I am concerned that you could be suffering from Dysthymia - low grade chronic depression. Please seek medical attention asap for further evaluation and management. ...Read more

Workup and PT: There is no good evidence that JHS in and of itself will cause such significant pain. With that said, many people with JHS do present with chronic pain, fibromyalgia, fatigue and even autonomic symptoms such as you're describing.

Constant neck clicking when taking breath, turning head etc Muscle twitching Weakness Extreme fatigue Cold sensitivity Feet tingling Any ideas please?

Constant neck clicking when taking breath, turning head etc
Muscle twitching
Weakness
Extreme fatigue
Cold sensitivity
Feet tingling
Any ideas please?

See an MD: i would consider a nutritional deficiency or a hormonal imbalance. Both can be discovered with a good talk with your physician, and simple lab work. The neck clicking might be something else, if not really something we call Chvostec's sign, which is due to low calcium. (Since breathing associated too)...not entirely certain. Start some multivitamins in meantime....and see doc. Get well. ...Read more

HIV highly unlikely: It seems you are having some recurrent colds and possible ear infections and are concerned they are symptoms of an acute HIV syndrome. Given your negative HIV tests, presumably 4th generation, it's highly unlikely you have HIV. Most patients with acute HIV will have (+) p24 antigen by 2-3 weeks. If still concerned an HIV PCR RNA test would be definitive. ...Read more
