... weak, suffered occasionally from nausea and diarrhea and seeing imaginary spots, etc. My muscles seem to be dead. Can you help me? The weakness caused my ower vertebrae to sink, causing pressure on both hip bursas and I suffered from severe trochanteric bursitis for four years. Where my muscles should be I am sore to the touch and suffer frequent bruises, red rashes and burning sensations. No stairs, need help getting out of a chair, and before this I had a strong constitution, doing yard work and room painting. I had extreme calcification of a heart valve and had surgery Jan '12 to insert a cow valve, repair another valve, and do a bypass. I am getting weaker slowly but continuously and have lots of body pain.
