I've noticed more and more lately that objects just fall out of my hands when I'm holding htem. It's like my hands forget they are holding something.  Is this part of fibro or am I just a clutz?

Hi Saintsfan, Do you have problems with your hands being numb in the morning because that can also be a classic symptome of carpal tunnel. For me it is a clutz thing because it doesnt happen to me alot. lol

Good question. I'll be interested to see what the others have to say.

Do you take any meds that might have this sort of side effect?

On the other hand, us fibromites can be a bit clutzy - in my opinion.

And I believed I was the only one, for me it is when I am really really tired or in a lot of pain.
On the days when I know it is bad I do nothing that will involve plates or cooking anything because it will end up on the floor.

No numbess, and this has been going on for a couple of yrs now; baut not everyday. I wouldn't contribute it to meds either because it started before I was taking any type of medicine. Kathy, I know what you mean; when it's bad I have to get my husband or one of the girls to help me.

Oh, yes, we drop things frequently.  I especially love when I drop something, pick it up, drop it again, pick it up again, and still drop it again!  Talk about feeling stupid!
 
Fibromites are really good at walking into walls, too!  This is one of the many things that makes us so charming!  turn    Hey, if you don't laugh at it, you'd be crying.  Keep a good sense of humor.  That goes a very long way with this illness.

What about being off balance? Anyone have this? Sometimes I have to actually catch on to something so I don't fall.

Oh yes, I often tell people that I suffer from "dropsy."   idea    Never knew what that actually means, so I just looked it up and it's 1. edema or 2. an infectious disease of fishes.  I still think it's funny!
 
I've noticed for years that when I've had my back adjusted, I'm more likely to  bump into things, or to squat down where there's no room to squat!!?  It's like the familiar nerve pathways have been disturbed and my body can no longer sense where it is in relation to other object or something. Weird.  But then, this whole condition of ours is WEIRD.

ps - I do get off balance too, and this week, for whatever reason, way moreso.

Sherrine, your right, if we can't laugh at ourselves who can we laugh at,lol. And yep, walking is sometimes an adventure-there are times when I look like a drunk staggering off tho the side.

Oh yes...I went to put a cup on the counter the other day and missed it completely.  If I have something fragile or valuable in my hands, the hubby follows me around, ready to catch it if it mysteriously flies out of my grasp. I have bruises on my shins from slamming into the open dishwasher, coffee table and right now I have a beauty from walking into the wooden arm of a recliner.  It's just a normal day in Fibroville!

That's why my husband nicknamed me "Grace" *lol*.  I"m the biggest clutz he's ever known.  I walk into walls, stagger sideways, drop things.  I never know when my hands are going to just let go.... or occassionally refuse to let go.  I have fibro, oa and carpal tunnel.

Frequently I am walking along with a full glass of something and my hand just decides to let go. I spilled a full glass of cherry juice in a long stripe right down the middle of my family room rug. Stanley Steamer got it out, but now it is coming back again. If it weren't so hard on my feet, I'd get floors that are concrete. Diane

thank you. I am new here and recently diagnosed. I didn't realize this was so common. I hate 'lurching' when I first wake up. I use the bed posts to swing around like an ape. Does anyone else's hands feel like catchers mits? like they are swollen in an allergic reaction yet are perfectly normal ( rings fit and all) My meds so far are worthless, All I'm getting is hallucinations. Time to change them. UGH!

Hi Stoneoakcroft and welcome to our fibro family, we have a great group of people here that are always willing to help out. Please write an introduction for yourself so that others will welcome you to the group. I also have problems with getting up in the morning and moving around I have to work out all the stiffness first. and I do that gradually in the morning. My hands do actually swell some during the night and if I have to have my rings off for anything I try to do it the night before when the swelling is down.
Anyhow Im glad you have found us and you are always welcome to ask questions, vent and offer advice, you can also let us know when you are having a really good day, it cheers us up and dont be afraid to join in on the fun either.
I have to go now or I will be late for Sherrines party. lol
