Muscles spasming at night
Hey guys. I'm 29 and have spastic diplegia. Does anyone else get - or have a child who gets - muscle spasms at night? I sleep on my stomach, but I wake up because my back arches and then I slam back down onto the mattress. Also I sometimes get involuntary hand movements. Does anyone recognise this? It's a bit annoying. I also have (controlled) epilepsy, but I don't think it's that as seizures are accompanied by nausea and there is none. I'm going to mention it to the epilepsy nurse next week just in case. I thought it might be cp as my mother says similar things happened when I slept with her when I was younger. Bemused. Any thoughts?
