Abused as a child until age 15 and kept hidden from ,myself for a long time it was so terrible. After it cam out I started therapy which helped in that only more memories continue to surface. Okay here is the meat of the matter. I had a knee replacement. at Physical Therapy they noticed I walked funny and I said my thigh hurts all the time. Therapist rubbed and found it very full of muscle knots. She would touch the center and the pain was excruciating. When asked about wheat I do to my thighs to possibly cause this it came to me. I can't even remember how long, but for a VERY long time, I wake up in the middle of the night about 3-4 times a week tense with my back arched, like a small foot bridge over the mattress. Off the mattress. My legs are tight and I am tense all over. I sometimes remember dreaming about being 'touched" or "running" but do not always recall what was dreaming about. I lower myself and eventually fall back to sleep. So now with all these Knots in my thighs she is using a heating pad and rolling pin to roll them out. It hurts terrible, I looked and looked on the net for anything like this but couldn't find anything. Has anyone ever heard about this type of sleeping disorder caused by PTSD?
