I usually take showers, but at my mom's I always found myself relaxing in the tub. I told my friends once and they laughed. Unfortunately, I realized why it was so "relaxing." When I leaned back on the opposite side of the spicket, the weight of about half my back and my head was pressing my brain stem to the tub. Picture being in a kind of sloppy and aggressive sleeper hold on your brain stem, but for up to a half an hour at a time!
One time, I came out and my whole upper body was faintly twitching, and when I hold my hand out, it's obviously shaking. Between Christmas and New Years, I got what looks like the start of a hemi-facial spasm. The muscle that lifts my left nostril, raises my left cheek, and squints my left eye twitched when I use them at all. I guess I could say the same for my arms and hands. If I stay perfectly still, they don't move at all. Is this nervous system damage? A result of muscle weakness? It was starting to get a little better over time, but now I fell asleep in the bathtub because I didn't get enough sleep and it's back to square one.
Do you think that I should wait it out a few weeks as I did before and keep an eye on it? I'd certainly go to the doctor if it got worse. Last time it got slowly better over 3 weeks. After three weeks, the spasms in my upper body were completely gone and the facial ones had faded about 50%.
If you don't think that the two things are related, please speak up. I'm pretty sure they are, but just saying.
