Perceived weakness

Postby Kev74 on May 27th, 2012, 9:27 pm

Its driving me crazy, I'm always thinking there's something wrong with me. My limbs, especially, my legs feel weak and rubbery. Yet I was able to lift 150lbs so they can't be weak. So why does it "feel" this way? Could it be psychosomatic? A lot of symptomsI've experienced, including twitching, happened after a panic attack in Match. I'm thinking there must be some sort of connection.

Legs or anything else feeling weak and rubbery is not a sign of ALS, and is typical of symptoms we experience. I think some of it is psychosomatic based on my own experience and so many stories I've been told over the years. Long ago I gave up trying to know all the causes for this stuff. Doing that only added to my anxiety, and did I really care what is causing this as long as I know for certain it won't harm me? No.
