Morning all! More questions from me I’m afraid!!
I’m struggling with what I normally describe as ‘stiffness’. I’m not sure if this is Spasticity??
When I wake in the mornings my whole back is totally rigid - around the thoracic, middle and lower - the muscles all the way up are rock hard - like an ironing board stuck up my PJ’s!! My legs are also really rigid down the backs - particularly my calfs and the muscle accross the front of my shin.
This makes my legs and my feet ache/hurt/burn when I try to walk on them.
At good times - after stretching & rubbing the muscles - this eases somewhat when I’ve been up and about for a while (it never totally goes away though).
At bad times like today I just can’t get it to ease off at all and I’m hobbling around the house unable to move my feet up and down - which means yet another day on the sofa or in bed!
The odd thing is my muscles in my lower legs are like I said ‘rock solid’ - my calves and shin muscles are exceptionally tight and ‘strong’ looking!!! They look like a body builders lower legs!!!
is anyone else like this? Is this spasticity???
