Default Muscle tensing sensations

Hi All,
I get these sensations where my body or parts of it completely tense up for a while and it's quite tiring and painful .. It's mostly annoying because it wakes me up when I'm sleeping .. Any suggestions for things I can do or take ? Maybe half a vallium?
Thanks
Dk

Most people take Baclofen for muscle cramps.

Thanks Al.. I get cramping and a good glass of tonic water usually fixes those but these are different they're more like a stiffness sensation usually when I've been in the same position for a while .. Would baclofen cover that as well ?

Baclofen lessens spasticity caused by upper motor neurone dysfunction. It could well improveyour stiffness. It's certainly worth trying it. The main side effect people seem to have is sleepiness. It often lessens the longer you take it.
