Weakness that comes and goes

The odd thing about muscular weakness with fibro is that it is often temporary. You may find that for a while you have trouble picking up a cup of coffee – and then one day you can, but then your ankle starts giving way if you're not careful. Muscular (or connective tissue) weakness in fibro moves around a lot. Many people find that an ace bandage or other muscular support device is enough to allow them to function almost normally.

This explains why I fall sometimes for no good reason. One day I can lift a gallon of milk or tea and the next day I can not. Thank you so much.
