I suppose medicating myself for having a cold and resting solidly last week gave me a respite from the spasticity a bit. However, now that I’m not completely down anymore, I’m being reminded of my condition.
I’ve not really had any quality sleep yet. I have dozed, but my muscles feel like a tight drum. I took the cocktail yesterday and stopped the spasmodic progression twice. Although the spasms are gone, I am left with a fair amount of pain from the muscles. I hurt globally.
I sometimes feel like this is a curse, a punishment for something I have done. My forearms, which harbor the muscles used to move my fingers, hurt exceedingly when I type. It is an amazing feeling. I can feel each individual muscle because of this as I type.
The muscles feel like someone poured acid on them.
My legs are propped up, but still, resting, I can feel the burn. My shoulders and chest are not happy as well.
I wish I had something insightful to say. But, the only words running through my head right now are “Ow!” and “Darn that hurts!”
Edit at 5:15 am. Everything hurts! OMG! It’s got to be hitting about pain level 7 or 8 out of 10. Only tremors and muscle contortions, no spasms (thank God in Heaven.)
