Ok heres the deal,,when I get tired I drop stuff over and again.  It doesnt matter how hard I try not drop say,my cigarette, theres no way I am holding on to it.  I am wide awake when this happens but just tired.  Same goes for tripping over things.   Anyone else have this problem?

ahh! yes! I am sooo bad with the dropping and bumping. I went shopping yesterday evening...and I am not joking when I say this...I picked up a pair of socks to buy...and dropped them literally about 10 times before I paid for them...I mentioned it to my sister in law after about the 5th time...like "could I drop these socks any more than I already have...?" and I did... this happens all the time...

I also used to have big bruises on both of my hips from bumping into prep tables in the kitchen when I worked in a restaurant...no matter how hard I tried to watch out..it still happened...I always thought maybe I was just a little less graceful than the next girl..but maybe its a fibro thing.

Hi Karen-

When I first got fibro I would read alot about others that dropped things or tripped easily. I thought, is this another thing I am going to get?? Yes, I do get that now. Not at the same degree some have but I drop things and trip more easily. Mind you I have been pretty graceful all my life till now. So I think it is a FM thing because I never did that before.

Just the other day I was reaching to warm up a cup of coffee to put in the microwave and I misjudged and hit the open door of the microwave and the coffee spilled everywhere! Glad it was a "cold" cup of coffee! And I was not tired-

Watch those lit cigarettes Karen! shocked

I don't have to be tired to drop things and bump into walls, door frames or trip over a piece of lint on the floor. I use to be as graceful as a swan. turn

I dont have to be tired to drop things, of course more tired makes it worse.
I dropped a plate of food on my son on accident, its like my hand gives out. I get alot of bruises on my legs from trippping on things.  I think its a fibro thing too.

I trip and drop things occasionally.  It doesn't matter if I'm tired or not.  It seems it will happen on a particular day.  I can be dropping things a lot that day and then I'll be fine for weeks. 
 
Marlee...graceful as a swan???  Does that mean you were an ugly kid?       Honk, Honk devil

I iwill have to say i have never been graceful, maybe even abit of a clutz, but no where like it is now, the worst thing is dropping glasses, i have went through many glass sets jut by dropping glasses on the floor, so much that one time my hubby bought all plastic cups.  But i really prefer to drink out of glass not plastic, so he had to get another glass set, i wouldnt settle for the plastic shakehead

Nope, no ugly duckling here, I was born beautiful and graceful. Then I hit 50 and and lost my feathers, forgot where the pond was and got so fat I can't swim. devil
 
I noticed bruises on my arm when I showered earlier and I have no idea what I hit.

Hi ladies and thanx for the feedback.  Ya I am rather clutzy on a reg basis which was never a problem when I was younger.  Rugs are the worst for me I always catch my foot on the corners specially since I had my strokes,I have a tendency to drag my right foot or rather when I step my foot stays very close to the floor or ground.  At night though is the baddest time for hand dropping.  I have had glasses slip right through my fingers.  I feel like I have a grip on it but its not tight enough to hold the weight of the glass.  And cigarettes,omggggggggg I have 2 pairs of nice pj's with burn holes on them.  I will be holding the cig and it drops right outta my hand and if I'm not paying close attention I dont notice it isnt even in my hand till I feel it burning through my jammies!!!!  Ya  Iknow a perfect reason to not smoke huh?  ahhhhhhh still not ready for that yet but this is p**sing me off.  I drop food alot too when trying to say have a chip or something ugh annoying.  But I think it is fibro related,this never happened till I was noticing fibro symptoms even before being dx'd.  Oh and I thought of something today(imagine that all on my own lol) I was reading posts in the chronic pain forum and noticed that ppl are always writing have a low pain day same as in here and there are all these abbreviations for things like ppl and dd and such so how about LPD for low pain day as I dont know about you guys but I write that alot and I think it would be cool to abbreviate it?

I'm kinda clutzy most of the time, but sometimes I have these muscle spasms in my arms that cause me to drop whatever I'm holding.  It's like I feel the muscle "jump", and then my fingers just sort of let go.  I just have to hope that I'm not holding anything fragile or important when it happens. 
 
Gotta love all of the weird stuff that goes along with fibro. rolleyes

Hi Karen! Amazingly, the "dropsies" have never really been a problem for me.....at least not YET! At least not with anything "animate" anyway! I do seem to have serious problems though with dropping "trains of thought", "memory", "pain thresholds", "sanity" and "motivation".........just to name a few..............(LOL) turn tongue wink smilewinkgrin

I'm with Marlee......always beauty and grace and, with me, it's STILL there!(LOL) devil   Watch out for that "hard" water in the shower dear.....it's can be murder! nono

Gentlest of hugs,

John
