1st movement after waking triggers violent muscle spasms

September 30th 2017: Revised, Expanded, Updated

When I wake up in the morning I get severe, sudden muscle spasms mainly in my legs and back . This happens every morning. The interesting thing is the spasms don't happen until I move a part of my body, even a little bit. This morning I woke up too early and was tired. I kept yawning and with each yawn, the muscle spasmed. Sometimes even curling my fingers ...

URGENT: Americans: Trump & R's are trying to change the ADA

Please call your Congressman/woman and ask them to vote "NO" on this ADA measure. The proposed changes have already passed the committee and will next be voted on by the full Congress. The biggest draconian change will allow companies not to have to provide accessible facilities as they must do now. It will force disabled people to justify why/how a business should provide accessibility and give the business six months to make any changes the ...

recalcitrant lesions

I cut my foot when I took a tumble over my tricycle. So, of course, it's infected. I went to see my GP and she put a bandage over it with fucidin creme. She also prescribed cephalex. But first she drew a circle around the red part to see if it gets bigger or smaller.

So today, 2 days later, after removing the dressing, I asked Suzanne to draw another circle around it. She did. ...

Choking on food and drink?

Lately, for the last couple of weeks every time I eat something it goes down the wrong way and I start choking. This happens occasionally with drinking as well. I also have been urinating a lot more frequently in the past weeks as well. I have read that both these things are symptoms of MS and I am worried.

Wishing everyone a good day!

Totally Confused

So I had an MRI performed because what started out with the best way to describe is white hot flashes of pain that would last for hours in the same spot. Then the next time it would flair up it could feel like something hot was being pour down my side or leg (or wherever it decided to act up). Then the restless leg syndrome kicked in. Next thing I know it's full body.
