Falling over sneezing

I just about fell over sneezing – which is less ridiculous, but just as strange as it sounds.

For about a year after I broke my back, I would, from time to time, have these crazy nerve spaz outs down the front of my legs. They would only last a second or so but, because they were basically like very short-term paralysis, could make me fall over when they were really bad. I always worried it would happen when I was crossing the road!

They diminished over time and after a year or so they had more or less stopped altogether, but I do sometimes get a little glimpse of them when I sneeze or squeeze out a jobby. Today was the first time for years that it has been really strong. Pretty strange and would probably be cool if the implications weren’t so freaky.
