    @Michael Scally MD @Dr JIM
    For the past 3-4 months I've been experiencing very bad pain and spasms in my muscles. This is a daily occurence.
    Just walking up stairs gives my entire body a painful "pump".
    Lying in bed at night is a living hell as every muscle violently spasms.
    Have addressed this with all my docs. Bloodwork was done 2 weeks ago. Triglycerides were high at 354. And uric acid was high normal at i believe 6.9. Creatinine was slightly elevated. Everything else was perfect.
    PCP has no idea. Dr. Marieb suggested possibly doing a muscle biopsy.
    I've read a few studies on stroke patients who later on have muscle "complications".
    Any advice from anyone would be greatly appreciated.
    Not on gear. Just arginine and protein powder.
    This is really fukin with my quality of life. Not a happy guy right now.
    Thanks in advance.

    HC I suggest a return visit to your rehab facility as the initial therapy.

    Yup i see my Doc on wednesday. Going to have to go back for physical therapy.
    Kind of sucks because i was finally back down to 260lbs.
    Momma is a little sad as we had to drop the oldest off at college last week.
    But all the kids are doing fantastic.
    Hope all is well on your end big guy.
    Stay safe with that Hurricane coming.

    Sucks to hear bud. You’ve been through worse you’re and strong guy you’ll get through this!

    I remember that with my son. Wife cried all the way home.

    Can’t complain too much my friend. Business is good and waiting on a reply to a bid on a very big contract. If I get it my driving days are over and will be full steam ahead running the business as I’ll need probably 5-8 more drivers on top of what I already have.

    Looks like it’s turning north so we should be good. Minus some wind and rain everything will be ok. Wish you luck getting this under control.
