Spasms and Itching

All right, this is going to sound weird, I know it. It's something I've thought about for many years and just never asked because it's weird...

When you have a spasm does it itch?

Like, say you have a spasm in your hip/leg when it's subsided do you get an immediate urge to itch?

I always have that feeling and it's weird and annoying!

LOL alright... I know I'm a dork... I just couldn't go to sleep without throwing that out there for you all.

G'night!

Re: Spasms and Itching

Hi, My son is the one with CP, but his spasms don't make him itch (we were asked to watch) But I have heard of this. It can also happen during your PT aparently. A lad with diaplegia I met said he gets various feelings during PT inc itching. The way your muscles are reacting and moving. Not first hand experience sorry, but might be helpful?

Re: Spasms and Itching

Thanks for the post, Basswife. I'm glad you've heard of it and glad your son doesn't have the problem. I just wanted to know if I was the strange one or if someone else had experienced something similar. I feel it is good to know you're not the only one and I just finally had to ask the question.

I always feel embarrassed if it happens somewhere in public or with company... as a girl I was taught it wasn't lady-like to scratch an itch (any itch!) and I always feel weird scratching my elbow, leg or foot randomly . I always wonder what people must think of me!

Re: Spasms and Itching

I think they think She's got an itch! Don't worry about it! Itching is normal, no one should thiink any less of you. I say if you've got an itch scratch it, unless its somewhere private or a big one thats going to be silly! Its not unlady like to itch. Just be gentle!
