I was on muscle relaxers for years, I now have a weakness with my thigh muscles. I can't get up for low chairs, sofas or the john. The doctor said it was due to toxicity. I just need to know if there ifs any hope that I'll get any strength back. It's only six months that I'm off them, but my muscles are killing me.
Any ideas?

i do know that muscle wastage can usually be reduced with time and exercise
that bad old word "exercise" :)

this is the reason i use water aerobics ......
exercising when out of water places gravity onto our muscles
exercising in water removes gravity from our muscles .....
therefore....
we are able to move our muscles without loading them as much.
this allows us to obtain "range of motion" without the fatigue as quickly.
