Finally getting thru another episode of nerve flare spasms lasted 2-3 weeks! I'm getting all too acquainted not only what the "phantom" nerve compression in my c-spine 6/7/8 can do with these painful and intense electrical spasms in my left arm, but witness the devastating result of what it does to my hand/fingers.
The episodes are intense constant burning electrical spasms for hours and hours, then proceeds to numbing atrophy loss of movement, then as the electrical spasms fade, leaves me with more disability and loss in my hand and fingers.
Whole Body Flinches/Jerks ???
Something that has been occuring for the past month I have been acutely aware of as I am getting a "handle" of going thru these nerve flare episodes, I'm noticing I have these sudden involuntary whole body jerks / flinches I guess you could call them. They are not connected to any movement but involuntary and the flink affects my whole body it's a while body jerk.
I was wondering if anyone else experiences these? I have them when I am sitting in my recliner chair relaxing, randomly, but more consistently occurring now every time I lay down.
I am concerned this is not from nerve root compression... and that it is positional induced and other neuro issues in my spine. MRI changes reported "deformed thecal sac" with spinal cord- - could this be connection to the body flinches?
Neuro & Neurosurgeon assessment coming up Sept. 23 can't happen soon enough!
