Anxiety?: I am assuming that you have consulted your primary physician who found nothing wrong. Consider a consultation with a clinical psychologist as you could be having a panic attack or anxiety disorder. ...Read more

Distal polyneuropath: Skin biopsy is useful for detection of peripheral neuropathy predominantly affecting small unmyelinated nerve fibers. A few biopsies obtained from the right location may be needed. Depending on the clinical presentation, nerve and possibly muscle biopsy is needed. Mri (cns/spine), labs including blood & CSF serologic studies, consultation with neurology, internal med/rheumatology may shed light. ...Read more

EMG has limitations: It can still be nerve pain even with an emg/ncv, this test does not detect damage to the small nerve fibers that transmit pain. 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. Need to stop the meds and check to see if you have enough magnesium in you body you probably need magnesium supplements. ...Read more

Fatigue and Muscles: With lupus, fatigue is one of the major symptoms that affects quality of life. If you have overexerted, then those muscles requiring power can feel even more tired. In some patients, muscles themselves can be affected in the lupus disease spectrum. ...Read more
