Horrible feeling in arm and leg

Postby davidb75 » Wed Jun 03, 2015 3:19 pm

Hello im quite new to the forum so please forgive me if this has been covered already.

Over the last few weeks i have been getting a feeling only down the right side of my body that where my arm and leg feels very weak and a bit like when you wake up with a dead arm and it comes back to life.This is all the time,not just at night or when im laid down
The feeling also makes my arm and leg twitch like restless leg syndrome,also sometimes my knee will collapse without warning.
Has anyone else experienced this?

I know exactly what you mean David - I get it all the time. One thing that's helped me (especially with the restless leg thing - along with muscle twitches) is taking Magnesium + Zinc - might be worth a try.

Re the limbs giving way, unfortunately a very normal side effect when fibro is at it's worst - rest up as much as possible, but keep active when you can.... it's hard, but you have to find a balance that works for you

Hope things improve xx
