Default Difficulty in straightening legs while in bed

I have ALS and have difficulty in straightening my legs. They lock up and I experience severe pain when trying to straighten them.

I;m curious to learn if anyone else with ALS is experiencing this and have you found something to treat this condition?

Thanks,

jrfitz

My mother did experience severe pain in her legs, too. She was given Ativan and Valium to help with the muscle spasms and Dilaudid for the pain. Hope you can find something to give you relief.
