For about a week now I’ve been having problems with weak hands. I have to use plastic cups because I have difficulty lifting pottery mugs. Sometimes I have trouble making a fist - my fingers won’t grip hard. I am increasingly dependent on my Kindle for reading, or a book stand to hold print books.
This morning when I got up, I felt better. My hands seemed stronger, I could make a fist and I thought about using pottery mugs again. By late morning things were as bad as before. A pottery mug wasn’t an option, I can’t make a fist and I have trouble holding print books.
Has anyone else had problems with strength deteriorating during the day? My legs seem to get weaker as well, but I’m largely sedentary so I’m not sure whether that’s related to my hand trouble. Is there anything I can do about weak hands? I have seen gadgets to improve grip strength. When I tried one my right hand barely moved it and my left hand didn’t move it at all! Hubby had no problems with either hand.
