I remember when I was younger, I would bound out of bed. As the years go by, and my tms is being healed at a slow rate, I still encounter "extreme" morning stiffness. LIke Stiff man syndrome. Even though I get up to go to the restroom 3-4 times a night with my interstitial cystitis, each step is so incredibly stiff. It isn't until I start moving around after an hour in the morning that I loosen up. Is this common as we age? Or at 55, should I still be able to bound out of bed without being stiff? Is this all TMS too or the aging process?
