Having a bad day today - work + fatigue + pain and arms and legs that don't want to work.
Decided on a nice relaxing bath but it just made m legs feel weirdly uncomfortable, can't explain the feeling exactly,then get out with jelly legs!
Roll on neuro app!
Anyway, about the twitching, does this happen when you are active or just when you are relaxing?
I've had the odd one at work and quite scary, one was my arm and head! Mostly though they are when I am relaxing. At the moment probably only maybe 5-6 a day, sometimes more and mostly in my legs.
Just want to know your experiences of this.
Good afternoon everyone.
I started on my copaxone last August and have felt so well since I wished I had done it earlier. At my previous rate I should have had two relapses since then but I am relapse free and life feels good
But, I am getting increasing pain in both legs and, sometimes my arms. The muscles feel weak and without strength - for example when I was doing my daughter's hair the other day I had to keep lowering my arms due to pain. My walking is now affected and the muscles hurt at rest. They are particularly bad when I first wake up.
They feel stuff and achy but not really "spastic" if you know what I mean. The MS nurse suggested baclofen and my GP has prescribed it but I wondered if anyone had had similar symptoms to these and if the baclofen (or anything else) worked.
Any words of wisdom would he gratefully received.
Hello folks. Dont normally post but am always reading them. Advice and wise words needed please. I've had issues with my legs for some time well over a year now. They ache and twitch on a daily basis. Some days I feel like I've run a marathon where in reality I've not moved off the sofa. I'm taking pregablin .I suppose my real worry is that my ms has moved up a notch from rrms to spms. And it scares me!!! Im still driving, working and generally maintaining a house hold but im finding it difficult.
Having had a bad shoulder for nearly 5wks i did ring drs 2wks ago but as i know theres not alot you can do for a pulled muscle,i was taking pain killers and putting ice pack on it did seem to be getting better,but last couple of days its been really bad to the point its like a shooting pain coming from the my the left side of my back going up towards my ear and face?the worst thing is i don't even know how i did it i litteraly woke up 1 morning in absolute pain and couldn't move of my pillow was so bad i just lay there crying,then i started with pain killers, cold pack, icespray, its now nearly 6wks and it's getting me down a bit as i can't even move properly for it,so had to ring drs again,now im waiting of there call
Nighttime as I posted before are a bit of a trial right now, as I do seem to wake with leg pain a lot, although its been better of late with increased doses of Baclofen, Gabapentin, and amitriptyline.
A second problem has been very severe and constant muscle twitching and spasm. The twitches are all down the whole length of my legs, and the pain spasms seems to affect my calves and feet.
If we cuddle up close ( which is fab for both of us) when my legs are against his legs. My partner commented that he could feel all my leg muscles 'going crazy' with twitches and movements that he could feel, constantly. The permanent movement causes him to have to move away as they are now driving him nuts!
Anyone else have this troublesome twitching and spasm problem?
