I don't think I have mentioned just how weak my left arm has gotten lately. I have no idea if it has anything to do with stepping down the steroids or not. Its weird. My leg is doing great but from the hip up is tense and cramped and weak. Standing to do dishes or anything like that really cramps up my side and makes me dizzy. And as far as my arm is concerned, I sometimes have trouble holding a plate for more than a minute without it starting to slip out of my hand. I even have trouble holding the remote in my left hand for long periods of time. And I find my left hand tends to clench up, without my being aware. I have to remind myself to unclench my hand when I realize that it is clenched!
