I was bit by a Brown Recluse spider in Nov of 2007,shortly after started feeling achy and weak. The weakness continued but had no insurance to go to a Dr. until April 15th 2008. Dr. ordered blood work with revealed elevated liver enzymes. More blood work and a ultra sound show no Hepatitis or Hiv. Liver enzymes are 100 pts lower but still high and muscle soreness and weakness is getting worse. I can no longer walk up stairs or have any strengh in my arms or legs, have Atrophy in upper arms.Went to the Dr.(gastrologist) on 6/11/08 she ordered more blood work to test for muscle diseases. I'm afraid Im not going to be able to walk or end up dying before Dr.'s find out whats wrong with me.I have horrible insurance and my Dr.'s keep sending me back and forth to each other not knowing whats wrong. Starting to get depressed andsometimes cannot get up out of low chairs or even toilets! This should not be happening to me I'm 49 yrs old!
