HEAVY ARMS

I have a sudden sensation of "heavy arms".  It begins at my shoulders and travels to the tips of my fingers of both arms simultaneously. There is no numbness or tingling.  They are just so heavy I can't lift my hands or arms. I can use my fingers to "walk" my hand a short ways across my lap or a desk.  This occurs only occasionally and lasts approximately one minute.  I had several eppisodes about two years ago, and went through many tests with a neurologist and cardiologist.  Nothing was found and I was told I was probably not getting enough rest.  The problem did not occur for about a year, but has now begun again, and I'm going through the same tests again with no problems found.  I'm especially concerned because my mother had the same problem for about a year before she passed away with a stroke.  Has anyone ever been given a disgnosis for these symptoms?
