Flabbiness of the tissue

Yes, as the headline, "Flabbiness of the tissue" is this common? It may be a good "bio marker"

Blood samples don't say much for us but these are easy to check:

Flabbiness of the tissue
POTS
PEM

If you want to check, I guess you lay down in the couch now.:zippit: Just place your foot on the backrest and check your under leg. Mine is not normal!! so incredible relaxed!

Do you have this?

Take care!

I wonder if this is linked to PEM or a static phenomenon? My arms can hit some hard PEM also.. Hard to even lift them at that point.. That may be a case of flabbiness also.

@Gondwanaland, thanks, I have it too. It's like my muscles are turning to fat because I gained about 20 lbs at the start, but I gradually get flabbier but don't gain any more weight, except water retention off and on.

@Gondwanaland, would you like some? I'm a generous person.......to a point, lol. You could have some of my fat.

I don't get it because I'm never hungry (maybe 2% of the time food is ok), so it has to be my muscles going away.
I would love to be hungry, gagging food down isn't fun.

That may also be a bio marker! I eat after the clock at every 3rd hour. Also never hungry. Foodgasm is gone unfortunate.
