I have officially had fibromyalgia since 2013, but had sporadic symptoms for at least 15 years before that. I have been as active as possible, digging garden beds, hauling wheelbarrows of rocks, dirt and mulch hither and yon on our property. I have noticed over the last 5-7 years that it is getting more difficult for me to climb chairs or get up off the floor.
I searched the web about this since it seems every new symptom seems to be linked to fibro. I found one study and a number of anecdotal reports about upper and lower limb weakness in fibro. My takeaway is that I need to slowly restart my weight training again.
