Especially after an extremely painful night of "sleep." I wake up so often as stiff as a board. This morning I asked my husband to rub my back so I could attempt to get out of bed and he couldnt believe how spasmodic my back was. He said it felt like a metal plate..not even skin.(how sexy huh?) I know stretches are good but I cant even get to that point on mornings like this...I take elavil(10mg) at night and it really doesnt help... anybody go through this???
