Subject: Re: Sudden jerks in hands and legs
I do, and I've started dropping things sometimes too. It seems to be that if I focus too much on one thing I completely forget whats in my other hand and I let go - completely bizzare! Rheumy says 'Yup, its pretty normal I'm afraid' - so as you say Sandra, something else to add to the list!!
I think the jerks happen when I am warming up again after sitting still for too long and then stretching as Laura mentions.
Re the shaky hands, I've stopped lifting heavy things but find someting 'pings' in my hands and forearms if its quite heavy - it feels like an elastic band inside me has been pulled and let go!! Aren't we interesting specimins!! Cue David Attenborough programme, more interesting than howler monkeys!!!
