2018 January 8th – Spasticity Returns after Cold

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.)
