Hi my name is DJ. I have just joined this network. I hope I can meet friends. Every time my spasms start again something is different, they are far worse. I am experiencing more weakness and sometimes I can’t control my arms and legs. I now use a walker. My left leg often gives out when I walk a distance of only a few feet. Also my legs often knock together or go up and down uncontrollably. Unexpected touch or a loud noise will bring on a spasm. Today as with any of my medical problems, being cancer free for ten and a half years, my involuntary movements with the dendrites not making connections with my brain stem, seem to help with exercise, and my sleep apnea with my small airway disease, keeping a positive attitude is most important. Attitude is everything.
