Weakness and Fatigue
Has anyone every experienced weakness of the arms and legs, and severe fatigue as a flare?
I had been doing really well the last several months, then last Thursday that "bone sucking fatigue" feeling started to come back. Along with some pretty thick cog fog and a bit of muscle cramps. I have felt like crap ever since. Could that be a flare?
The everyday normal stuff, (vibrations, pins, needles etc.) has been pretty stable. Not an increase or change in them.
I go back to my Neuro Friday, so I'll ask then. Just wondering what others think.

Right there with ya!
I woke up this morning and aside from the fatigue, it hurts like hell to move my right arm. At first I thought maybe I just slept on it wrong. That was 12 hours ago and it still isn't better - in fact, maybe even hurts a bit more.
I will say that over the weekend I also had issues with choking on my own saliva, and I dropped & dragged my foot a bit more. I've been having issues with my leg since the end of September, but the arm, the swallowing, and the bladder issues are all somewhat new or re-emerging.
Hang in there and let us know how your appointment goes Friday. I just had a t-spine MRI, but it was clear of lesions. So for me it's still all in my head - literally.Erin
