 involuntary stretching
Elliot (---.dsl.bngr.epix.net)   5:24am Nov 28 2009

Two months ago, I had a compound fracture of the tibia just above the ankle that was fixated with a titanium rod and screws. The issue I have is that during the night and as I awake, I find myself doing an involuntary stretching of both my legs....kind of like how we often do when we arise in the morning. I've tried to control it, but it almost impossible. After the stretching my ankle feels slightly sore, but after 30 minutes it goes away.

At first I was concerned that the uncontrollable stretching would be harmful the my injury, but this has been going on for at least 6 weeks and other than the temporary soreness, I don't notice anything unusual. In 2 weeks I visit my doctor and I am wondering if anything associated with the stretching will show up on my x-rays.

I was wondering if anyone in this forum has had this sort of thing happening.

Thanks.
