Re: heavy arms

Not sure if I've had what you have, but I do know that with this mess, we have muscles that contract but do not release. I had arms that were heavy, that I could not have clothes on, that kept me up. A massage therapist worked trigger points in the area and stretched (both causing the muscle to release). Sometimes I just take my wrist in my hand and pull away from my body for a couple of minutes to stretch my arms. I stink at applying the pressure like the therapist and she costs too much, but stretching your arms is kind of easy.
