Spasms, spasms, spasms.  I take my medication like I’m supposed to, I watch what I eat, but no matter what, every night I still get woken up, or get shaken up at, like, 3:00 or 4:00 am in the morning with spasms, and there’s nothing I can do about it.  I can take more drugs, or I can have a baclofen pump put into me—I don’t want to have any of that machinery in there because it’s just  another hassle, and you can get infected, and all that stuff.  So, it’s just a major inconvenience if I have to get up in the morning to, like, stretch your legs out, put them straight, and hearing the hips pop, too.  That just kind of makes my skin crawl when it happens.  I can’t feel it, thank God, but when I hear it, it’s like, “ugh.”
