Has any one noticed any Mussel loss and strength in their arms?
I had broke my Tib & Fib 9 weeks ago,still on walking sticks and last week I started to take Metho - Pres.So i have been on these now for about 5 days.
Its even hard to lift a pot of coffee to pour into a cup with one hand.

Hi Johnny.
Maybe, its not muscle loss but muscle weakness. I know some days my body can feel like Im carrying an extra person around and my arms can feel so heavy that they feel like they are dragging on the ground (I call this my 'monkey arms day' lol). Not sure if this is what you meant, but hope you feel relief soon. Joanne

Hi Joanne
You could be right about the week arms.My romie told me that it was mostly from the RA that is in my hands that is causeing me not to use my wrist and arms when they hurt so much.
Some times I just close my eyes [ha ha] and lift what ever and feel the pain in my hands and wrist, but I just tell myself, well the hell with it because I dont think that they break off.
Going to run,see you later,and have an nice day
Cant wait till next week,get my walking boot for my leg,Maybe now I could get to ride my motorcycle.
cant wait.
