    I am finding that the longer I deal with CFS, the weaker my hands are getting.

    Anyone else have this problem? If you do, what can be done?

    I have FM and my hand's get weak when my shoulder's get too tense.

    My p.t. said it trigger's a nerve that control's the hand's strenght and dexterity. When it happens I tend to drop things ( happen's when i get overly tired too)and have a hard time picking up small object's( like my med's).

    I don't know if that relates to your question, but that is my experience.

    Best wishes,

    Claudia

    I get weak hands also. My left worse than my right. I'm RH. I have RA also and always blamed it on that. Don't know. My husband always warns me, especially when i'm carrying our youngest grandson who's 3 months!!
    Good Luck.

    I had very weak hands. About two weeks after taking Calcium Pyruvate, my hand strength has come back, not 100%, but a lot.

    If I miss a dose for even twenty-four hours, the strength starts to go away again. I cannot explain this effect, but this supplement helps me with hand strength :).
