Question - Muscles shaking/trembling/quivering

Hello. I have asked this question before but didn’t get a ton of feedback so I’m going to ask again. Does anyone on here have muscle shaking? The best way I can describe this is when someone goes to the gym and works out their legs super hard and you can literally see their legs trembling or quivering. This is not a fasiculation. I get those and know what those are. This is literally a rhythmic movement that can literally make my entire thigh move and it… read more

Coping with the Loss of my Cousin at Age 54 from RA COPD and Interstitial Lung Disease

I found out in a round about way that my closest cousin (relationship) was in the hospital in S. Carolina and had been since around Mother's Day. Nice to find these things out from others instead of where you should hear them from. Last year he had been diagnosed with RA and then came the COPD and finally the interstitial lung disease. They had had him on Humira and methotrexate and he was warned about what they could do to… read more

Compression Sleeves?

Has anyone tried compressions sleeves for muscle pain? Have you had good results? I remember wrapping my legs in ace bandages in high school when my shin splints were really bad and the pressure eased the pain a bit. At least enough for me to walk. I wonder if sleeves would help my forearms when the muscles feel like they’re seizing up.

Lipitor Issues?

I found a few questions about this but they were old, so I wanted to ask again. My doc just put me on lipitor for cholesterol and my throat hurts and feels tight, as well as very bad upper back/spine/lower neck pain. I had read that statins cause muscle pain and I figured it wasn’t going to work out. Are there other cholesterol meds that any of you take that don’t cause fibro pain to worsen?

I kindly ask you not try to sell me on it and I will delete and block anybody that does-on this thread-. I have many what I consider to be friends on here but I draw the line… read more

How do you cope?

I’m struggling to get the energy to attend appointments including psych visits I’ve been waiting months for. Aside from going through an extremely rough patch Ive gotten to the point I’m not leaving the house. Im just not coping with the pain with doing basically nothing but breathing (what I’d give to have a shower and not regret the movement). I’m honestly afraid to venture out and risk exacerbating the pain and fatigue as I’m barely keeping it together now. Divulging my thoughts to my parents… read more
