It puzzles me as to WHY I periodically will wake up in the morning and would have a spasm that goes from one end of the center of my back to the other end. The pain is so excruciating! It feels like someone is standing on my back wearing combat boots. Out of the blue, it’s there, crippling my every move. The only thing that helps it feel a little better is heat. I have to lay on heating pads every night until I feel it on its way out. If I turn my head it hurts. If I try lifting my hand to drive, take a shower, or simply brushing my teeth, my body catches in the spasms. So, I have to be careful how I move. If I am laying down and need to get up, I have to slide close to the side I am getting up on. If I have to bend to pick up something, I have to bend with knees slowly, and rise very slowly. After about a week, it begins to fade away — slowly. Finally, one day I would wake up and it is gone, as if it was never there. However, my other Fibro pains are always there 24/7. Has anyone ever experienced this? If so, reply to this message. I am curious to know if this type of spasm primarily affect people with Fibromyalgia.
Spasms in the base of the Head/Neck
This is another area that I have spasms on a regular basis. These too come out of nowhere. One moment I do not have them, the next moment it feels like someone just stunned me in my head with a stung gun of some sort. After the initial hit, its hurts to move my neck. I have to be careful how I move it, how I lay while in bed, etc. This misery lasts anywhere from 2-3 days to 2-3 weeks. It never totally goes away. It always seem to just hide in the background leaving me with a low grade discomfort in the same area, reminding me that it has not totally left me. When I take a mile muscle relaxer it eases it up a little more. Does anyone experience these head spasms?
I checked online about back muscle spasms and found some interesting information. If anyone suffer from these type of spasms, this information might help you understand them a little better.
