Unassisted Stomach Exercise

Submitted by Andesine on Mon, 2009-03-23 19:31

Well this is weird. I've been happily sailing along on the Wheldon Protocol. No major issues for a year. I got the nausea to start off with but found ways round that. Got the sun issues from the Doxy, don't know whether that's now in the past as we've not had much in the way of sun.

However, with this latest pulse I'm suddenly getting stomach spasms. It only happens at night and only if I'm lying on my right hand side. If I roll onto my left side it stops. It's exactly like having one of those electric exercise machines on that cause your muscles to contract.

I don't get them during the day at all, possibly because I don't lay on my right side in the normal run of things, it's a bit difficult to work like that.

Other than that, still no reactions or odd happenings. Anyone else come across this?

Sounds a bit like what DW himself experienced, but in his torso.  The contractions appeared like something running under the skin, up the chest, over the shoulder then back.  It didn't last long but only happened late in the evening..................Sarah

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

LOL, seems David and I have oddities in common then. I got finger splits, he got toe splits. Now it's common spasms. I'm not copying honest. Image removed.

 My spasms don't move. The best way I can describe them if you've never used one of the electric pulse exercise machines is, pull your stomach muscles in as fast and as hard as you can, then release. Like that but only on the right hand side.

I shouldn't complain as it's 'free exercise' but if it continues I'll end up with a lop-sided stomach.  Image removed.

I got some more localized versions of this in various muscle groups along the way. The change by shifting position is weird. On the other hand, you can get really ripped abs if you take advantage of it...

LOL, yes but only on one side which is going to look decidedly odd. If I could figure out what's causing it I could maybe get it to switch sides.
