Are your muscles contracting? After my surgery I had and still get the same feeling unless I take muscle relaxers.

Hope you feel better.

Have you added or subtracted any meds recently?

Or perhaps you need some jalapeno and bacon mac & cheese?

I hope it gets better for you soon, Garett!

Garett, as one who has had a few medical issues of late, I feel your pain. Forget the heroin, the ludes, and ohmygod, definitely the crystal (that's UP, not DOWN).

However, I'll ask this openly and honestly - have you tried smoking some pot? Maybe you should. I'll relate something here (briefly) as I've mentioned it in the past. My brother is terminally ill and has been for the past several years. He is in constant pain. The Vicodin, the morphine, the fenatyl... he's been prescribed all of it and while one may work for awhile, you build a tolerance to opiods (along with constipation and other undesirable side effects) rather quickly. He threw all those aside and the only way he gets any relief now is from cannabis derivatives. They ease the pain (somewhat), they help him sleep, and they increase what little appetite he has. My brother is my size - 6'5" and he currently weighs 110 lbs. He has wasted away to almost nothing, so everything he can eat is vital to just maintain what's left of his body. Although the VA won't prescribe it, a local doctor prescribed Marinol for him as well and he's seen good results with that, too.

Try it. You may find it helps you in many ways with relaxing, nerves, pain, and state of mind.

I'm no medical expert or Dr. But I think it could possibly be mineral related. Go to a health food store (no not GNC) a real health food store. Get a product called "Natural Calm", its great for leg cramps that wake you up at night, and cramps anywhere else. It has vitamin D which the body HAS to have before any vitamin/mineral processing/assimilation can happen.

magnesium deficiency copy



Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms — How To Introduce More Magnesium Into Your Diet.

Magnesium is a mineral that is crucial for more than 300 different bodily functions, such as bone and muscle formation. Though magnesium can naturally be found in many different foods and can also be found as a supplement, it is estimated that up to 75 percent of adults in the United States are deficient when it comes to magnesium. It is recommended that adult women should receive approximately 320 milligrams (mg) of magnesium per day, while adult males should take in approximately 420 mg per day. Children and young adults should receive anywhere from 80 mg to 410 mg of magnesium each day, depending on their age and gender. However, there are also certain conditions, such as alcoholism or Crohn’s disease, that may make it difficult for the body to absorb nutrients properly. Here are some common magnesium deficiency symptoms and how you can get more of this essential mineral into your diet naturally.

Symptoms Of Magnesium Deficiency
If someone if only mildly deficient in magnesium, they may experience somewhat vague symptoms such as fatigue, trouble falling or staying asleep, increased irritability, confusion or memory troubles, and twitching in the muscles. If these symptoms go unnoticed, they may progress and cause more noticeable signs, such as heart palpitations or a rapid heartbeat.

The red ^^ I think is your problem. Muscles are all over and any electrical imbalance (magnesium deficient/cy) is the culprit IMO. Your exercising is causing the deficiency, and your muscles are twitching imperceptibly yet enough to cause skin movement, making real fine hairs move feeling like "skin crawling/bugs" again just my opinion. Read this article as well.
copied and pasted

"This mineral is equally valuable in nutrition. Virtually every cell in the human body uses magnesium and it affects over 300 different enzymes. In fact, there is no mineral used by more cells or systems within the human body. Magnesium plays an important role in maintaining nerve impulses and nerve function, regulating heart rhythm and keeping bones strong.

Hope this helps, so give it a try and let us know if this helped any, at a minimum you still get a good benefit. Ralph

Ease off the meth. Or you are spending too much time in isolation. Both are known to cause sensation/hallucination of ants.

I've got'ta say, my heart and lungs feel better for the laps, but my body's energy seems to be depleting.

I'm not feeling any cramping, but all my muscles do feel like they are percolating, almost like they are electrified....very similar to coming down off of a massive adrenaline high.

Horse, I think I could try heroin now a days from what I've read about it....it's not like I'd be tearing down a temple these days. The quaaludes and crystal, I'm down enough, I don't need more down.
Adjust you diet - If you work your body that hard on the elliptical you are depleting stored nutrition. Forget the drug suggestions, Look to proper food intake and enough calorie intake for you body to replace what your burning. When you do intensive work outs you body metabolism kicks into high gear and if you don't have enough intake then it scavenges what it can from muscle and bone. Get well my THT brother.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Dulcy is correct.

Garrett, the CBDs in cannabis will help with inflammation and neurological problems. The THC will calm and relax the body and increase the appetite.

It is definitely worth a try.

IMO, the opioids, etc. are too bad, long term, the patient builds a tolerance and are addictive.

You just need some time out in the woods, around a campfire, with your friends.
And everything else will seem trivial.

You know guys taking a joke too far makes the joke no longer funny. Part of being a good joke teller is knowing when to stop.

It's time to stop! It's not funny anymore. The G man is in need of help and the persistent ribbing is enough. Give it a break, when he feels better maybe then you can pile on.
