- DX FIBRO
Do you mean fibromyalgia flare? I'd've thought muscles would weaken longer term from lack of use due to lack of energy, not short term from a trigger or flare?my muscles are weakened; whether from a fibromyalgia trigger
I've never had weak muscles at all, just problems unleashing their strength. When my energy is back, they're strong as ever. Or is that what you mean by weak if it's more from the flu or a flare?
I'm not sure and would (as ever) be interested in others' opinion too.
I doubt that a PT could distinguish short-term from long-term weakness. But what's more important there is that her exercises helped and didn't harm, that's great!
But having had the flu definitely weakens the muscles, I'd reckon a month for that.
Time will tell - and whatever - your exercises will help, best short, but very regularly!
