This is intolerable

J and I watched a really sweet movie last night, Eagle vs Shark. Throughout it, I'd have to jump up off the couch and limp around, as this damned nerve would twitch and I just couldn't sit still.

When sleeping, I have to lie on my back, not my preferred way to sleep. But anything else seems to trigger it, as I discovered multiple times between two and three last night.

I tried adjusting my desk at work, so I could work while standing, but that triggered it. I can't sit normally without it going off. I have to sit hunched over, with the angle of my torso to my thighs being less than ninety degrees, and even that's no guarantee that it won't happen.

I think a chiropractor might help. I am the hardest on "alternative medicine" of anyone I know, but it seems that someone with a lot of knowledge on bones, nerves, and connective who is also really strong could intelligently stretch you in a way to provide relief from pain stemming from such things. I don't think they are any more voodoo than masseurs. It's direct manipulation of the body, instead of chemical manipulation. I don't see how that's strange at all.

Matt's dad is a general practitioner, osteopath, and a chiropractor. He thought it had its place, and would typically work on someone's back and also prescribe pain or muscle relaxant meds. Between the two, people got better (like my dad!). I think there's a lot of crazy quackery, but maybe you can find someone like Larry who is both an MD and a chiropractor?

Have you read my blog?
