I am so sorry Woton. Do you ever suffer from seizures? If they hospitalize you are they going to put you in a monitoring unit? As part of my disease, I suffer from uncontrolled muscle spasms. So I am very familiar with the painand discomfort that go along with them. Once I was started on Baclofen, a muscle relaxant, the spasms were totally controlled. Good luck and keep us posted.
