Certainly understand the weakness, floppy arm and having to physically hold with my other hand... one of the first symptoms for me, particularly bad when trying to turn over at night... used to distress me to have to physically move it, felt really scarey! It has got alot better now with the meds but still gets like it from time to time...like last night as I have overdone it a bit lately,wakes me up alot. Hands got swollen but not my actual arm, though it feels like it! Hope that makes you feel a little less alone! Take care

ps also happened in the day alot, struggled to pick up a glass without support or reach up to a cupboard and pick something out without supporting with the other arm..a real pain in the....arm!

Hi Naz,

I think the weakness is not that uncommon. Of course if it's accompanied by numbness and/or pins/needles then it needs to be assessed. Likewise with swelling I'd imagine, I think I would be going to the doc with that, it doesn't sound like anything I've had in the past.

I hope they can work it out for you, but I do urge you to get it checked out. Better to be safe than sorry ((((Naz)))

love
Lily
