Since my collapse, it has been my theory that the veracity of the spasms had more to do with the muscles than my neurological system. It became my theory that my pain was cause by repeated injury to the same muscles. In my case, all of them. My wife and I have been looking for a way to rapidly heal injured muscles.
And this is where I do a face palm.
Back in the day, when I was in the military, some guys were heavy into power lifting. They took amino acids and protein drinks to help the buff up. I thought it was foolish. That is, until now.
Two days ago, I had a significant attack. My wife had just purchased some weightlifting drink mixes. I’ve had the shakes for two days now. The pain in my muscles are almost gone.
However, what this has helped me realize, is the neurological issues that I have. I am one clumsy mo-fo. It is funny, to me. I will never be a world-class gymnast.
I haven’t typed much in the last few days. I really couldn’t. Although the drinks help the pain decrease dramatically, my fingers, gait, and overall eye-body part coordinate is less than marvelous.
But, I am very, very happy about the protein drinks. I should be popping Lortabs right now. I’m now. I still had to take some muscle relaxers last night. I went to the hospital, with only a cane. That was a mistake. I almost couldn’t make it back to the car. My wife had to bring the car to an egress point close to where I was.
She is an amazing person. I think you all should give her a round of applause. 🙂
In other news, I have started my 2nd paper journal. My handwriting stinks, but I throughly enjoy it.
