I was wondering if anyone has been experiencing the symptoms that I have. The doctors couldn't find anything wrong with me, so I believe its some kind of stress disorder. My problem is that for 2 years now,out of nowhere my stomach muscles will contract so violently that my whole body lunges forward. Its like I'm doing sit ups against my will, and when I try to keep my body still, the contractions speed up so fast until my whole body shakes voilently like I'm having a seizure. I'm always fully aware, so I don't think it's actually a seizure, but it hurts alot and makes me so weak whether I fight it or not. When this all began, it ALWAYS came about 2 minutes after I'd lay down to sleep, even though I was fine and comfertable, but It wasn't often. As time passed, stress seemed to make the disorder come at anytime and all the time. Does this sound familiar to anyone??
