Does anyone else have this symptom or have any ideas about this symptom? From what I can gather, I don't think many seem to have it. When I got sick in a very short time my muscles seemed to almost completely disappear. Not in that they got smaller, which they did also, but that my body turned to jello. Right now my body is like what it would be like if you poured pancake batter into a sausage casing. I can no longer flex a muscle and have muscle loss in places that I just don't think can be explained by lack of use, such as in my fingers and hands, which I still seem to use a lot. Also the short time period in which this happened, say a couple months, is no more than past periods in which I've been inactive and in those instances I had no noticeable muscle loss, much less to this extreme extent. I lost a good amount of weight quickly at the same time this was happening and believe it was all just muscle weight. Previously I was always toned and had strong, well-defined muscles.t I want to talk to my doctor about this again, but wanted to see if anyone else had any insight into this beforehand. I feel certain inactivity is not the cause or at least not the primary cause. I know you can and do lose muscle in a short time after inactivity but this seems too extreme to be explained by that and also, as I said, previous periods of inactivity never yielded any noticeable muscle loss. Thanks for any ideas.
