Steve, I have had this condition for about
18 years. Comes and goes, sometimes months w/o occuring but when it does, it gets your attention. Happens at night after I fall asleep. A doctor told me years ago it was Proctaglia Fugax. Best thing is to get up and walk around about
20 minutes and take two tylenol. Then its sweet dreams again. The Old Sailor
