Why do I suddenly have trouble holding small objects?

Since FMS affects our connective tissues, it can weaken our grip – or create problems with other limbs. But FMS rarely affects all connective tissues to the same degree at the same time, so the problem areas travel. Your grip can be so weak you need two hands to support a cup of coffee one week – and fine the next. A supportive bandage can be very helpful during times when this is a problem.
