      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.

              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!
