Leg Spasms and Autonomic Dysriflexia

I recently spent nearly everyday in bed for just over 3 months because I made a mistake in ordering my spasm medication. I was in another country and the package was lost during shipping Blah Blah Blah! So during this time I shot this video so that viewers can see why people with paralysis need spasm medication.

    Interesting. Back in 2006 ..2 yrs post my c4 quadriplegia .. The place I was at forgot to order my Zanaflex 4 mg. It was critical I had it every 4 hours with severe spasticity. I went into AD ..ambulated to a hospital followed .. Every hospital event I bring my meds..I cover it with my surgeon beforehand ..He authorizes it. Nurses have a hour window to get it to you. If they kept your med filled on the floor and usually dont.The time variance is up and down and us quads require a timely schedule. The med itself can have a variance in the breakdown compounds. Round Zanaflex doesn't last as long .. oval barely gets to 3 hours so that hour I find paralysis pretty evil lol. The liver is why I don't take 6 mg .. and await that 4 th hour .. no med researched for us quads is a huge concern. Baclofen makes me comatose. . It also removes any possible feeling of wacky signals ..spasticity has its purpose I feel. It's how I move ..taught how to use it. Oxycotton is evil.. both like others are typically ordered for us paralyzed people ..Once I declined their use it ticked doctors off .. my body started to change thou. We can't numb it all ..if the unfixed spine can have a shot.. or if the brain is to recall feeling what we cant.Ty.. lisa T.

    Hey buddy, its your old friend James ;-) I hope your feeling better since filming this video.If your'e able to, try to buy Valerian root. Amazingly, I have't had to take any baclofen since I started using it. Maybe it'll help you too. You can order it from amazon, a vitamin store, or a herbal store. I hope you have better days ahead. Be good o yourself ;-)

  • Olek Walczy POMOC DLA OLKA

    Spasms are terrible. I have them early morning. During the day sometimes I have spasticity in my left hand. One day a have got spasms when I got up, happily my wheelchair was closlu behind me. Without any control I fell on it. After it I am still scared that spasms could catch me when I would be walking. Good luck bro!

  • Katie Oliverio

    Thank you for posting. I am studying for a neuro exam (currently an OT student) and this was super helpful.

  • Brenda Kennell

    Amazing how your timing is impeccable! This video comes out right when we are getting ready to do a unit on SCI in our OTA classes. My new students all feel like they know you since we watch so many of your videos. I hope these rough days are behind you, and we can talk/Skype again sometime when you are in FL.

  • Calvin Cooley

    Those headaches are gnarly! I'm a T4 and kind of spazzy but those are the most intense spasms I've ever seen. Dangerous.

  • shannon grams

    Chris,  I watched your spasm video.  I have a friend 46y.o. c4 quad.  He used to suffer, but now, he has few, it is very rare.  If you see my message  and want more info, drop me a line.  Maybe it will help.  ~S
