Status update: I've been having increased night spasticity for a couple of weeks, so that I wake up kind of sore, as if I'd been clenching my muscles all night. There may be some teeth gritting too, as the jaw is sometimes sore. The neck-shoulder area can be sore too. I still have that small pain on the right side. There is some satisfaction in clicking my teeth together on waking. I also like to moan a bit when rolling over or repositioning. Not in pain, but just for some unknown reason.
Also, the right shoulder joint is stiff and can hurt when held in certain positions. This has been going on for a few weeks as well.
And the muscle on the back of the neck, the one that hold up the head, has been twitchy for the past couple of days.
