I also suffer from FSH MD. I can not get my arms above my head, have pain in my arms and shoulders. I also have great pain in my back. I have started to stumble and have even fallen. I am only 34 years old. I can not do much of anything that requires use of my arms. My father was diagoinsed back in 1981. It is a very hard thing to deal with. Are you still able to work? :wave:[/QUOTE]

I am glad you wrote back!!! My left arm became weak last year. But I am right handed. Now my left upper arm is starting to hurt and every time I use it too much it hurts. I am over compensating for my left arm weakness.
My both parents passed away in 1980 and 1981. I do not know which one had it. This year I have been getting fatigued alot so I cut my hours down a little. it has helped. I have been having some personal stress and I think that does not help. My back does not hurt me but my neck gets very tight. i have learned some stretching excercises that help. I have been putting pain relief patches on my arm from any pharmacy and it helps me.

I also took a fall in front of the place where I went for Physical Therapy. I thought that was ironic. after that I have been taking a cane with me. It has helped tremendously. I also have a dog and I walk her and she sometimes pulls and I go flying. Tell me more about how you are handling everything.

look forward to talking to you
