Yea - i get this. I sometimes refer to the same feeling in my legs as my elephant legs because they are so heavy and dead feeling. My arms can also almost feel bruised. And my hands can also almost few arthritic — like I can’t even bend them or lift them or lift anything with them. Makes me feel real old and I’m only 30. Be well!

Yes..that was one of my primary complaints before being diagnosed. For me, the only way to deal with it is just give yourself a day or two off (if possible) . Rest in bed..watch a movie.
If i try to keep going, it never improves.
I get my kids to cook and my husband to brush my hair. :)

When I am having a bad day, it's taxing on my arms to wash my hair. It's amazing how many little things FM affects.

It’s funny you should ask this cause I’ve been feeling really crappy the last three out of four nights and I was thinking this morning how I would explain it to my doctor. I thought I could tell him it hurts from my jaw to my fingertips and down a bit into my rib cage on the left side, front and back. I’ve actually been afraid I was having a heart attack!
