Hi Barbara, I’m not sure about it being muscle fatigue as mine starts within an hour of being out of bed but I suppose being right handed I am using that arm a lot so that’s enough to set off the spasms for the day. I have noticed since using the sling on the right arm for the last few days, no spasms are occurring.
Regarding fatigue, I have so much of this that I am even using a walker inside my house which was provided to me by a hospital physio. I’m currently on Canadian crutches outside the house but now the walker at home just to take pressure off muscles when going from room to room. Never thought I’d use it, but when he left it with me I tried it and it’s been great. The hospital physio explained that due to our lack of collagen in all parts of our body, our muscles are working so much harder that fatigue is a big battle for us. I find by 10ish in the morning I am shaking constantly when I stand and have been this way for many weeks now. I even use the seat on the walker just when at the kitchen bench so it’s saving on fatigue constantly. The hospital physio is recommending a walker for my car and a slim line walker for inside my home and is organising both for me to try out, so I’m going to give both of them a go.
