Distal polyneuropath: Skin biopsy is useful for detection of peripheral neuropathy predominantly affecting small unmyelinated nerve fibers.

Fibromyalgia although less common in young men, can present with muscle pains in all 4 quadrants of the body, above & below waist, left & right side. ...Read more

Medication complicat: The symptoms are from the atenolol and if they are from that med you probably have an intolerance to all beta blockers and medication metabolized by cytochrome p450 system in the liver.
