    Glad to hear you are getting more return, but sorry that your spasticity is worse. Are you currently on any anti-spasticity meds? If so, what and how much? Are your bowels, bladder and skin OK? Are you feeling OK otherwise? Increased spasticity can just happen for some people, but it can also be a warning that something is wrong. Was this a sudden or gradual change.

    Glad you are seeing your SCI physician. Be sure to discuss this in detail with him or her.

    nothing seem wrong except my back between shoulder blades made a terrible sound like it cracked and hurt like the dicken and if you rub on it it still hurts i have osteoporsis in back osteo pena in lower back osteoporosis in left hip i am takin fosamax and calium.actually the spams ar just like my mom when she had fractures when she had osteoporosis a coople of yrs ago but she is not paralized dr bowman does not think that is the cause.also the spams <violent> started back about the time i started getting some return .

    I am exactly 2 years... out T-12.. Just recently my spasms have gone through the roof. My legs stiffen straight out and shake violently. Also, at night they jerk and it is very hard to sleep. Im my case "I THINK" it may be related to my bowels. If anything is in my system.... well the spasm start up crazy. Keep in touch. Mikey! (Florida)
