I have had for 4 days cough with clear mucus weakness body aches and fatigue and mo appetite is this a virus? And how long before i get my strength an

Probably viral.: We are in the "flu season" and your symptoms sound like a respiratory virus. Generally, with acute illnesses, my rule of thumb is this: However long you've been sick, it will take that much time to feel like yourself again. Of course, factors like age and health influence how quickly we bounce back. If you aren't over the worst symptoms by 7 days, or you get worse, see a doctor. ...Read more

One possibility..: Although rare, there is a neurologic condition, benign fasciculation syndrome characterized by twitches, cramping, tingling without weakness (that is a quick summary). See a neurologist or a physiatrist for evaluation to be sure. Whether it is this or something else, physical exam can reveal a lot. It could be a simple electrolyte imbalance. If neurologic, the nerves can be tested easily. ...Read more

I hope to sstop antipsychotics one day will my former physical strength return when i do?  Or is this joint pain and muscle weakness permenant?

Great questions: But they should be directed to your prescribing physician.Your pharmacist would also be a good resource. However, i must insist that your prescribing physician confirm and agree with the stopping of your meds. You should not do this on your own because you don't like the side effects. Again, confirm with your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
