I have lost range of motion in my right shoulder...don't know what I did to cause it.  I can't reach behind me for something, or put my arm in a coat sleeve by myself.  I thought I might have frozen shoulder, but some days are better than others so I don't know.  Just anothr fibro thrill, I guess....

If you were to get into a pool or hot tub, you could work on your range of motion by slowly stretching and moving around.

It will take a while, weeks, but you can get your motion back if the reason is fibro.

But, if you do not work on it, your body will stiffen up more and you will lose more lean body tissue, muscle.

One of the best things for range of motion in the leg is a stationary bike.  I only know this because of my torn meniscus.  Even if you can't go all the way around, just go back and forth until it loosens up.  It took me about 2 to 3 weeks before I could go all the way around.
Just remember the old saying...."use it or lose it"
