Hello, does anyone suffer from a really weak leg feeling, Almost jelly-like? Mine are really bad, the feeling is always there, even when resting.. Is this a BFS symptom?! I've recently had a a normal EMG after 6 months of non stop foot (and other) twitching and shoulder/arm problems. But now this.... What does it mean? I'm getting nervous again :-(

Sanje, seems like nobody is willing to say a very simple phrase: yes, this is common for BFS (at least for big part of fellows) in a course of symptomes. It is called 'perceived weakness' and does not usually prevent you neither form walking, nor form standing or even performing workouts.

Thank you very much for responding.. It' so hard to get my head around this. I can walk, but it feels unsteady, and I can't get rid of this terrible weak feeling. I wanna believe that it is just perceived, but I feel myself doubting everything again. A week ago I was fine and thought my normal EMG will make everything disappear, but instead new symptoms are appearing :-(

This feeling as far as I remember is a kind of sensory illusion. many fellows had reported that, and if you will type 'jelly' in the search, for sure you will find tons of posts (I found 13 pages). Fellows also report feeling of imbalance. like walking on the tenniss balls or uneven floor. Think if you had anything disturbing for the last few days/weeks (bad sleep, flu - which is very debilitating this year, etc.) I can reassure you that this would also go away.
