Today I experienced something very strange. I was in the shower and had just finished washing/conditioning my hair and I felt as if something was squeazing my upper back. Like a snug rubberband accross my upper back/shoulder area.

I also had the normal "stars" that I get when washing my hair.

I am going to call the NS office and leave word with the nurse.

Has anyone else experienced this one?



  • from you discription...does it feel like someone is winding your shoulders to the center of your back? If that is what you tried to put into words, I have that constantly. I wouldn't be surprised one day to find my shoulders touching each other behind me.

    I feel fairly certain, that it is my muscles spasming that gives me that twisting feeling. It seems to make my shoulders get to be next to my ears (not literally, but you know). I am constantly trying to stretch this out..and lower my shoulders, but if feels like i am stretching a rubber band.

    let us know what you doctor had to say.

  • I feel like my skin shrank. Like it is too tight? Weird huh?

    Yesterday evening was my worst day so far. Both my hands froze for several minutes at a time (on and off) though out the night. Shooting pain into my shoulders and elbows, and burning/tingling hands.... My neck which hasn't hurt a lot hurt to move the smallest amount.

    Today is promising to be just as wonderful.
