Are your legs rigid through their entire (what would be normal) ROM, or only
part-way? I can extend my left arm to 140 deg. or so, and then it stops
solid. Through the range that I CAN move it, however, I have a normal level
of strength--well, almost.

Yes, that's right, Ken. Actually, there seems to be two major types of
spasticity - dystonic (or ataxtic) or rigid, in which a muscle is rigidly
spastic and you cannot move it easily. I have the rigid kind in my legs.
