Welcome to the board! I'm so sorry u'r dealing with this. Yes, as Kimber said, heaviness in arms and legs is very common. I've not been dx'd either (Denda) but i can certainly tell u i've dealt with this many times. It comes and goes. It feels as tho u just can't lift u'r legs sometimes or, as Denda said, simple things like doing u'r hair are an complete exertion and just wear u out. Rest as much as u can. That seems to be the one thing i've found that makes any difference in that and fatigue. I imagine u can't rest too much at work since u said u'r up and down stairs often, but what about
either moving the files (for example) down to where u are or u'r desk up stairs?? I'm sure there are some accomodations that u'r boss would be willing to examine for the good of u and u'r company. Who wouldn't want to do all they can to help a productive employee?? For now u may just need to collapse on u'r couch each evening until all this gets better. If u'r like many here...it will get better, but no specific time frame on that. Please let us know how u are and how u'r appt goes next week. We've all been thru much or all of this and everyone here is more than willing to help all we can. Ask all the questions u'd like and we'll be here. Again, welcome to the board!
Also, please do feel free to join chat on Mondays! It's always a great way to 'personally' connect with other members and get some real time answers to u'r questions. Denda...u DO have a lot to contribute...so please join in anytime u can.
