Probably my absolute worst symptom is my entire body changing, getting very smooth, rubbery, and grayish skin. Lots of muscle loss, and a very bad, dead feeling inside my abdomen. The dead ,cramping feeling inside my abdomen tells me that my muscles and metabolism are simply not responding anymore. Whatever it is that keeps men looking dense, their metabolisms revved up, and the ability to maintain lean muscle mass, it has completely shut off. It’s like the muscles around my stomach and everywhere else are offline. There’s a steady twitch in my abs that you can see, it’s like a heartbeat. It is there constantly and never goes away. When I go for a jog or quick walk, it speeds up and I get a runner’s stitch very easily around my midsection. It is absolutely horrific. At this point, I worry about gaining a disgusting amount of weight, as my body has basically shut off.
