limbs heaviness

Is it only me or its common for leg and arm to be heavy.

I do not know if this is common, but it happened to me. The heaviness continued for a long time, but has now eased. My leg feels ‘normal’ but I still have tight muscles at the top of my weak left arm. At first, I could not lift anything with the hand at all,or hold anything, but can now hold light objects. Hope things get better for you.

Thanks Jeff. My mind at ease now knowing someone understand . Sometimes it's not easy to wake up with heavy part of body not knowing if you getting worse or u have set back.

That is our problem..we become ultra sensitive to our bodies. I still have tightness round the shoulder, but in the early days my arm felt like a lead weight.
