Showering and washing hair

The last few times I've showered I've felt ill for hours. I can't wash my hair because standing or sitting in the shower is just so awful. Does any one else have this problem and how do you continue to stay hygienic? If you don't have this problem any ideas are still welcome. I feel so weak and useless to my own body.

Crying bringing on a flare

Does anybody else find if they cry that it makes them feel ill for hours on end? Or is it just me

Yes!! I'm almost too scared to cry. Think it's to do with the stress/frustration or emotions that are making me cry which then trigger the pain.

Anyone have spasms.

I find after I have done anything I have spasms. They seem the worst when I lay down. Grocery shopping will lay me up for a day or 2. When I lay down my legs will tighten bending my knees, toes and fingers curl, everything is effected. When I have been on my feet for too long. I actually wake up in the fetal positions. Also, when I first lay down. I get cramps in different areas, that are terrible I have to massage the area or try to walk it out, etc. .
