Before I tell you what happened to me I have to give a bit of a back story (pun intended).
I have had 3 back surgeries. The first in Nov. 2004 was just to clip 2 disks. They had to refer to them as L-4/5 L-5/S1 because I have an extra vertebrae also called a transitional vertebrae. Then in June of 2006 they had to go back and fuse the same. I already had a fusion in my neck at C-6/7 in '98 but broke 2 Titanium screws,don't ask me how I just did. So I would get little jerks and spasms in my body. Then I had to have MORE back surgery in 2011 because of yet another car accident but put it off for months. This time they had to take out the old fusion and be fused from L-2/S-1. We bought a King size bed with a thick mattress about 2002 so getting in bed wasn't easy for me because I'm only 5'4''. The jerks and spasms were worse almost comical to me now because I never knew whether my leg would just jerk or one of my arms would flail. I have trouble holding a cigarette without dropping it or a pen go flying out of my hand. I know you are going to tell me to quit smoking and I have to because I have to have yet more back surgery because the screws are coming out and I am terrified of having ANY MORE surgery.
This is where it gets a little disconcerting because I have never had a violent spasm or jerk. One morning around a year ago I ended up sleeping on my back. I was barely half awake and all of a sudden I feel like I'm flying out of bed because it was like something wanted me out of bed and flipped me out. After I hit the ground and am mentally checking for injuries aside from some sore spots and twisted back. I just said what the HELL was THAT. It was pretty embarrassing telling my husband because he doesn't believe in the paranormal unless he thinks his deceased father or my grandfather are in the house. How do you believe that 2 deceased relatives visit but nothing else paranormal? It could have been the 2 ghost children we had around (we don't sense them around right now possibly because we have a dog with incurable cancer and we just aren't open to them now?). Or do you think it could have been something or someone else?
